22-Year-Old Catcher – Baltimore Orioles
2017 Fantasy Baseball Outlook
One of the top pure hitters in the minors for a couple years now, Sisco seems to finally be solid enough defensively that most evaluators think he can stick behind the plate. The power has never proje...

Chance Sisco: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Sisco was slowed by a pair of injuries last season, but when healthy he showed why his bat figures to play well for the Orioles. At just 20 years old, Sisco displayed advanced plate discipline and contact skills with an 11.0% walk rate and 13.7% strikeout rate at High-A before earning a promotion to Double-A. There may not be another catching prospect in the game that has a better hit tool than Sisco and it led the Orioles to hang on to him despite other teams inquiring at the trade deadline. His power is still a work in progress and that facet of his game may never evolve beyond a fringe tool. His eight steals were a bit of a surprise. Oblique and finger injuries kept Sisco out for over a month, but he got enough game action to prove he is ready to begin the 2016 season at Double-A. Matt Wieters accepted his qualifying offer and will return as the starter in 2016, but Sisco could be an option later in the year.
Sisco spent the entire 2014 season at Low-A Delmarva, playing 74 games at catcher and 40 games at DH. It is not uncommon for a minor league team to play catching prospects at DH once or twice a week, but in Sisco’s case, a lot of his value hinges on him sticking behind the dish. He only threw out 20 percent of would-be basestealers, so he will need to improve upon that as he moves up to High-A. Sisco’s second half at the plate really put him on the prospect radar, as he slashed .361/.424/.456 in 66 games. However, he slashed just .267/.362/.344 in 90 at-bats against southpaws on the season, and if he’s not adding value on defense, and doesn’t improve upon those splits, he will need to make the big leagues as the strong side of a DH platoon, which means he really has to hit.
