2018 Fantasy Outlook
Piscotty made several noteworthy improvements in 2017: He boosted his walk rate from 7.9 percent to 13.0 and swung at fewer pitches outside the strike zone (just 29.5 percent compared to 33.1 in 2016). Plate discipline advancement aside, the soon-to-be 27-year-old lost ground nearly everywhere else and even was sent to Triple-A Memphis to try rebuilding the swing that lifted 22 homers and an .800 OPS in 2016. Additionally, he lost time to head, knee, hamstring and groin injuries in 2017, which ultimately may have factored into his disappointing production throughout the season. The pedigreed bat has always profiled as a "sum of his parts" player at his peak, showing something less than elite power but the potential for steady contact and run production throughout his time as a professional prior to last season. Piscotty should step into a prominent role in Oakland's outfield after being traded from St. Louis in December. Read Past Outlooks
