2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

In 2015 and 2016 with Triple-A Nashville, Wendle hit .285 while averaging 11 home runs, 80.5 runs, 59 RBI and 13 stolen bases - useful numbers, to say the least, for someone who hasn't really been considered a top prospect playing in a poor hitters' park. Despite his 6-foot-1, 189-pound frame, he delivers crisp swings. Oakland even tried him in the leadoff spot against right-handed pitching after calling him up in September. There's a lot of Joe Panik in him, for better or worse. It doesn't seem like he'll excel in any single counting category. When a player is heavily reliant on batting average for fantasy value, plenty can go wrong, especially for someone who isn't an automatic .300 hitter or an elite prospect. Wendle may get another shot in 2017, though Jed Lowrie could push him for at-bats if he can recover from foot surgery. He has a slightly intriguing power-speed mix, but not enough to suggest that he's an attractive piece outside of AL-only formats.
