RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

An outfield collision with Dexter Fowler in his second game of the season resulted in a torn ACL and MCL for Schwarber. Much to everyone's surprise, Schwarber was cleared to DH in the World Series, and it was like he'd never been away. Schwarber went 7-for-17 in the Fall Classic with three walks to four strikeouts, even adding a stolen base for good measure in Game 7. The fact that he was able to jump right back in against high-level pitching after nearly seven months away (and only a couple games in the Arizona Fall League to shake the rust) speaks to Schwarber's immense talent at the plate. Unfortunately, he lost catcher eligibility and it's uncertain how often he'll man the backstop in 2017. Chances are, he will play primarily in the outfield coming off such a serious knee injury, and with the emergence of Willson Contreras. Regardless, Schwarber remains a highly appealing option as he's among the best young hitters in the game.

2016

All Schwarber does is hit, and the Cubs had no choice but to promote him last year when it appeared that no minor league level could hold him. His .246 batting average was a bit disappointing, but he made up for it with 16 home runs and 36 walks in limited regular-season action and five more homers in the postseason. Even better, though he moved to the outfield he still managed to catch 21 games in the majors, earning him valuable multi-position eligibility. It's doubtful that he can be an everyday catcher, but it's possible he could play enough behind the plate to continue to stay eligible there in the coming years. How does a catcher-eligible player who hits 25 home runs and bats .290 sound?

2015

The Cubs drafted Schwarber with the fourth pick in the 2014 draft and he made an immediate impression in his three-level stint, hitting a combined 18 home runs in 262 at-bats with an on-base percentage north of .400. Though he played a lot of outfield in his first year as a pro, he's expected to be a full-time catcher in 2015, either at High-A Myrtle Beach or Double-A Tennessee. If he can prove himself there, he'll be on the fast track to Chicago, where he won't have many catchers to beat out.
