RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Ervin, the Reds' first-round pick in 2013, has spent two disappointing seasons with High-A Daytona, only briefly emerging towards the end of 2015 to play a little at Double-A Pensacola. The Florida State League is a tough track for hitters, but Ervin slugged under .400 there. On the bright side, his walk rate was above 11 percent and he stole 30 bases in 109 games. The wrist injury that hampered his 2014 season is fully healed now, and some hope that he could end up as a center fielder and tablesetter remains, but that walk rate will collapse against upper-level pitching if it is not backed up by some semblance of being able to hit the ball with authority.

2015

Ervin came flying out of the gate after being taken in the first round of the 2013 draft by the Reds, but took a big step back at Low-A Dayton last season. While he made the same amount of contact, his walk rate plummeted as did his average. Granted, his numbers in rookie ball and his first exposure to Low-A were fueled by a very high BABIP, so some regression was already expected. Offseason wrist surgery prior to the 2014 season appeared to leak into his regular season performance, so he gets a pass for one bad season -- in keeper leagues with deep farm systems, you might be able to buy him at a discount. He still projects to give you plus speed, if not much power.

2014

Ervin, the Reds' first-round pick in the 2013 draft out of Samford University, got off to a flying start in his professional career, hitting .331/.425/.564 combined between Rookie-level and Low-A ball and going 14-of-15 on the basepaths to boot. As a college draftee, Ervin was expected to advance quickly through the lower levels of the minors, so 2014 will bring on a greater test, with him possibly hitting High-A pretty early in the season. He might struggle initially if the wrist injury that ended his season persists in the spring.
