RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Kemp is the type of player who often gets overlooked due to his size (5-foot-7, 165 pounds), but the Astros know more than any other organization that small second basemen can still be a factor at the big league level. With a profile that matches Jose Altuve nearly perfectly, the 24-year-old hit .308/.388/.386 in 121 games between Double-A Corpus Christi and Triple-A Fresno last season. With excellent plate discipline (169 walks to 179 strikeouts over three minor league seasons) and plus speed (35 steals last year), Kemp has advanced rapidly in the minors, but the Astros have a crowded infield and aren't in a rush to promote him to the bigs. Unless the team deals with injuries, he's likely to spend a full season at Triple-A Fresno.

2015

In 72 games with High-A Lancaster, Kemp hit .336/.433/.468 with 19 doubles, four triples, four home runs, 37 RBI and 79 runs scored over 295 at-bats. His .433 OBP ranked first in the California League, which earned him a well-deserved promotion to Double-A Corpus Christi in late June. The 23-year-old second baseman was nearly as successful in the Texas League, hitting .292/.381/.425 in 59 games. What Kemp lacks in size (5-foot-6, 165 pounds) and power, he makes up for with plus speed (41 steals between the two levels) and an excellent batting eye (73 walks to 67 strikeouts). He's a prospect to keep an eye on in the Astros' system as he prepares for a likely promotion to Triple-A at some point in 2015.
