RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Demi Orimoloye.
Orimoloye is a huge (6-foot-4, 225 pounds) outfielder whose athleticism has scouts imagining big things if he can put it all together. Unfortunately, Orimoloye is still incredibly raw, and he took his lumps in his second professional season at rookie ball in 2016. His batting average dipped all the way to .205, and he mustered just 13 extra-base hits in 61 games after hitting 17 in 33 games in 2015. The 19-year-old who played his high school baseball in Canada is still adapting to breaking pitches, a big reason why he struck out 23.1 percent of the time in 2016. His potential is enticing, but Orimoloye will need years of development before it's realized in the majors.
Orimoloye was selected in the fourth round of the 2015 draft by the Brewers, and it took little time for many to consider him the steal of the draft. The 6-foot-4, 225-pounder's pure athleticism translated to strong Arizona League numbers, as he posted an .837 OPS with six home runs and 19 steals. While he did put up a troubling 27.1-percent strikeout rate to pair with a low 2.1-percent walk rate, Orimoloye is also only 19, giving him plenty of time to improve and develop. If he can maintain the excellent slash line, Orimoloye could continue to climb up the Brewers' prospect ladder.
