RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

There was no outlook written for Wendell Rijo.

2016

The 20-year-old Rijo played a full year at High-A Salem in 2015 and held his own among older players. He slashed .260/.324/.381/.705 with 27 doubles, two triples and six homers in 455 plate appearances. Rijo maintained his effectiveness at the plate, showing good pop for a middle infielder, but experienced a drop in his walk rate. He can steal a base – Rijo stole 15 bases and was caught seven times – and averages 15 steals over the previous three seasons. At this point, his hit tool is well ahead of his defense. He gets a little lazy in his mechanics and shows poor fundamentals. The bat makes him an intriguing prospect, but Rijo really needs to focus on his fielding if he’s going to play every day in the majors. His average arm locks him in at second base in the infield, but that’s well-stocked position in the organization. Rijo will move up to Double-A Portland in 2016.

2014

Rijo, an international free agent signed in 2012, spent most of the 2013 season with Boston's team in the Gulf Coast League before a brief stint with Short Season Lowell. Only 17 at the time, Rijo displayed good contact skills and held his own against the competition, performing better as the season progressed. More impressive is that Rijo was recovering from ACL surgery in 2012 and wore a bulky knee brace for much of the season. Further removed from the surgery, Rijo has regained his speed. He has the skills to be a plus defender, though he can get lazy in the field. Now 18, he may be pushed to a full-season assignment at Low-A Greenville.
