RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Jacob Nix.
While Nix does not stand out in a loaded Padres system -- and probably won't even stand out in what will be a historically stacked High-A Lake Elsinore rotation in 2017 -- dynasty league owners need to at least be aware of him heading into his age-21 season. A prep righty who was given an over-slot bonus in the third round of the 2015 draft, Nix boasts a fastball that sits in the mid-90s, and his curveball projects to be at least above average. The development of his changeup will be critical, as he needs something to neutralize lefties, but he is making strides in that department, striking out 53 over 54.1 innings against southpaws last year. At 6-foot-4, 220 pounds, he has an ideal starter's frame, and he has demonstrated advanced control for his age (4.5 percent walk rate). Nix may not be able to match the upside of rotation mates Anderson Espinoza and Cal Quantrill, but he safely projects as a No. 4 starter with the potential to be a No. 3 if he maxes out.
