RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

There was no outlook written for Justin O'Conner.

2017

O'Conner played just 20 games in 2016 between rookie ball and Double-A after being sidelined until August with a back strain. He got off to a strong start in the former, slashing .325/.400/.525 over 45 at-bats. However, he had a tougher stint at Double-A Montgomery, where he hit just .160 over a 26-plate appearance stint to close out the season. The 24-year-old backstop figures to kick off 2017 at Double-A again but could certainly ascend to Triple-A Durham at some point during the coming campaign. He's proven capable of solid production in extra-base hits, homers and RBI at multiple stops, but his ability to carry that over against higher caliber of competition remains to be seen. Outrighted to Triple-A Durham in December, O'Conner will stay in the organization to begin spring training without the benefit of a 40-man roster spot following the team's addition of Wilson Ramos.

2016

O’Conner simply cannot hit. It may seem harsh to say that about a prospect who has not yet played above Double-A, but at this point it is a fair statement. Even when he was taken with the 31st pick in the 2010 draft, there were major questions about his hit tool, and those concerns have been validated many times since. He has the best arm of any catcher in the minor leagues, and he could be a plus defensive catcher in the big leagues, but if he is hitting .200 then fantasy owners will be unable to chase the counting stats that could come with his being in the lineup on most days. Unlike players like Christian Bethancourt and Austin Hedges, who have similar all-defense profiles behind the dish, O’Conner actually has above average power, so he could run into 18 homers if he played 130 games. But that still would not be enough production for his low batting average to be palatable in most formats.
