RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

There was no outlook written for Andrew Knapp.

2017

Knapp opened eyes in 2015 after slashing .360/.419/.631 with 11 home runs in 214 at-bats at Double-A. That performance and the presence of fellow catching prospect Jorge Alfaro were enough to get Knapp promoted to Triple-A in 2016. That proved to be more of a challenge. The switch-hitting Knapp struggled against righties, hitting just .258 with a .684 OPS, but was solid against lefties with a .277 average and .772 OPS. He saw his strikeout rate jump from 17.8 percent at Double-A to 24.2 percent last season. The Phillies brought in Bryan Holaday to serve as Cameron Rupp's backup in 2017, giving Knapp and Alfaro more time to work in the upper levels of the minors. He could be pushed to first base or a corner outfield spot this year as Alfaro will likely be moved up to Triple-A to continue his development as a hitter. Of course if one of Alfaro or Knapp is forcing the issue, the team would likely send Holaday to Triple-A and begin the youth movement behind the dish.

2016

Knapp, a second-round pick in 2013, opened last season at High-A Clearwater and was promoted to Double-A Reading in late June after slashing .262/.356/.369 with two home runs. He really took off after his promotion, slashing .360/.419/.631 with 11 home runs in 214 at-bats at Reading. He obviously can't sustain that pace, but he is showing skill growth, which should allow him to remain successful as he advances. Knapp also cut his strikeout rate from 22.4% at Clearwater to 17.8% at Reading. His walk rate dipped slightly, but his BB/K ratio has improved thanks to the reduction in strikeouts. There have been questions about Knapp's ability to stick behind the plate, but recent reports suggest that he is showing enough improvement there that a position change not on the radar, though the Phillies have two solid catching prospects in Knapp and Jorge Alfaro. Knapp will likely make it to the majors first, perhaps as soon as 2016, but it remains to be seen which of the two will be the long term answer behind the dish for the Phils.

2015

Knapp, a second-round pick in 2013, got a late start to his season last year while he finished up his recovery from offseason Tommy John surgery. He was initially assigned to High-A Clearwater where he started off slow at the plate. The Phillies opted to move him down a level and he went on to hit .290/.354/.438 with five home runs for Low-A Lakewood. The Phillies believe Knapp could move quickly through their system. He'll likely open the year at Clearwater and could be moved up to Double-A by midseason if he gets off to a good start at the plate.
