RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

D'Arnaud's 2013 struggles lingered into 2014, with the former first-round pick batting just .178/.213/.311 with six extra-base hits (three homers) over the first two months of the season, while he lost time to a concussion. The decision was made in early June to send him for a tune up at Triple-A Las Vegas. Simply put, d'Arnaud was a different player upon his return. He smashed a three-run homer in his first game back and from June 24 on, d'Arnaud hit .272 (70-for-257) with 19 doubles, 10 homers and 32 RBI. D'Arnaud also shortened his swing and trimmed his strikeout rate by close to six percent in the second half (from 18.1% to 12.3%), giving hope to a Mets team that plans on competing in 2015 that he might be on the verge of a full-fledged breakout at the dish. Fantasy owners will obviously be hoping for the same, but without a longer track record of success at the major league level, d'Arnaud will likely remain a fringe starter in most mixed fantasy leagues, at least at the start of the season. He underwent surgery to remove bone chips from his elbow but is expected to be fine for Opening Day.

2014

D'Arnaud, the centerpiece of the R.A. Dickey deal, heads into 2014 with major questions. He suffered an injury that sidelined him a good portion of the season for the second year in a row - this time, it was a fractured fifth metatarsal of his right foot that kept him out three months. When he was promoted, his defense was better than advertised, but his offense was near non-existent; he hit just .202 with one home run and five RBI over 112 at-bats in 31 games in the majors. Despite that, he will enter 2014 as the Mets' starting catcher, though Kevin Plawecki is starting to gain some favor as the best catcher in the team's system.

2013

Widely regarded as one of the best catching prospects in baseball, d'Arnaud kept adding to his resume in 2012 before a knee injury ended his season early. In 279 Triple-A at-bats, he collected 16 home runs while batting .333. The Pacific Coast League has been generous to plenty of hitters before him and his BB/K rate (0.33) was not overly encouraging. The Mets acquired d'Arnaud as part of a package for R.A. Dickey in December, where he should take over as the team's primary catcher at some point in 2013 given his advanced defensive skills at a position of need.

2012

d'Arnaud put a back injury and the pitcher-friendly Florida State League of 2010 behind him and re-established himself as a legit catching prospect with a breakout season at Double-A New Hampshire, hitting .311 with 33 doubles and 21 homers as a 22-year-old. He needs to control the strike zone better (33:100 BB:K in 466 plate appearances) if he wants to hold onto his offensive gains against more advanced competition, but he put himself back on the prospect radar after two disappointing seasons. The Jays have an interesting dilemma ahead if d'Arnaud continues to develop at the plate with J.P. Arencibia around, but for now they'll see how d'Arnaud handles the jump to Triple-A.

2011

D'Arnaud battled a back injury and the pitcher-friendly Florida State League to cobble together a respectable season, hitting .259/.315/.411 in 71 games for High-A Dunedin in his first year in the Toronto system. He's got a good defensive reputation, but it remains to be seen if his bat will ever develop into anything fantasy-worthy. We'll have to see how he handles the jump to Double-A before getting too excited.

2010

D'Arnaud was a supplemental pick in the first round of the 2007 draft. He got out of the gate slow with a .207/.269/.363 line in the first half of last season at Low-A Lakewood but really put things together in the second half, hitting .302/.366/.473. D'Arnaud is considered a solid defender and he flashed some power last year with 38 doubles and 13 home runs. If he can continue to hit like he did in the second half of 2009, the Blue Jays will have a very nice catching prospect on their hands after acquiring him in the Roy Halladay trade.
