RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

There was no outlook written for Eric Jenkins.

2017

A high school bat drafted out of North Carolina in the second round of the 2015 draft, the Rangers threw Jenkins right into the fire in 2016. The teenager played 126 games for Low-A Hickory. Though he batted just .220, there are plenty of positive takeaways for Jenkins, who remains largely projection and potential at this time. He stole 51 bases (on 66 attempts) to lead the South Atlantic League. Jenkins also managed to hit eight home runs, but power is not expected to be a major part of his game when he reaches the majors. He fanned 157 times over those 126 games, and while those struggles are not uncommon for a hitter coming straight out of high school, questions about his hit tool were the reason he fell to the second round. Jenkins also managed to draw 40 walks, so the makings of a solid approach are there. His plus-plus wheels are the main selling point for dynasty league owners, but his bat will need to improve in order for him to profile as an everyday player.

2016

The 45th overall pick in the 2015 draft wasted no time showing off his speed on the basepaths in his professional debut last season. Jenkins was successful on 28 of his 31 attempts in just 56 games between rookie ball and Low-A Hickory after signing last summer. While he hit .262 in his first taste of professional ball, a strong approach led to a quality .348 OBP, allowing him plenty of opportunities to run. He hit five doubles and a whopping six triples in his brief debut, but true to the scouting report, there was no over-the-fence power to speak of. At 6-foot-1, 170 pounds, Jenkins is unlikely to ever develop much pop, so this is a speed-only outfielder in the Ben Revere mold. Look for him to begin his age-19 season back at Hickory, and if he can continue to get on-base at a solid clip then Jenkins could receive a late-season promotion to High-A, which would suggest a big league ETA in 2019.
