RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Wolters hadn't appeared above Double-A prior to the 2016 season, but after developing quite a bit behind the plate and putting together a strong showing during spring training, the former infielder managed to crack the Rockies' Opening Day roster as the backup catcher. Expectations were fairly low for the 24-year-old, as he hadn't hit above .250 since 2013 with Cleveland's Low-A affiliate, but he surprised everyone by posting a respectable .259 batting average to go with 15 doubles and 30 RBI. He also was heralded for his defensive abilities by the end of the season. His 23 percent strikeout rate is less than desirable, but given how much he produced in a backup role, the former third-round pick's first season in the majors was largely a success. Still, catching prospect Tom Murphy seems primed to take over the starting catching duties now that Nick Hundley has left Colorado, which could limit Wolters to a backup role once more.

2016

Wolters' transition from the middle infield to behind the plate has actually gone pretty well as he threw out 49 percent (38-of-77) of would be basestealers last season at Double-A Akron. His bat has been slow to come around, however. Wolters has never hit much since being drafted in 2010, posting just a .607 OPS in 159 career games at Double-A, so the move to behind the plate was the best chance for him to carve out any sort of career in the big leagues. He'll need to continue to refine his receiving skills and perhaps the bat will take an upturn at some point as he gets more comfortable behind the plate, but he's never going to be a fantasy asset. He's a good candidate to get DFA'ed this winter as the Indians look to make room on their 40-man roster.

2015

Wolters' offensive shortcomings have been fairly well established after five minor league seasons. In 94 games (387 PA) with Double-A Akron in 2014, Wolters hit just .249/.319/.314 with one homer, 34 RBI and a .605 OPS against left-handed pitching. He does have a career .342 OBP, but has managed a mere 13 homers in 1,598 plate appearances. The 22-year-old is uniquely versatile in the field, however, with the ability to play catcher as well as both middle infield positions. The Indians added Wolters to their 40-man in November ahead of the Rule 5 roster deadline, presumably to serve as an insurance policy behind the plate in the early going, but even if Wolters does receive a major-league opportunity in 2015, he likely won't be deployed in anything more than a backup/utility role and he's shown nothing in the minors to suggest he'll ever make a fantasy impact.
