RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Moroff made his major league debut in 2016, striking out twice as a pinch hitter. The 23-year-old switch hitter played nearly the entire season at Triple-A Indianapolis, where he hit .230/.367/.349 in 520 plate appearances. He led the International League with 90 walks, but the batting average dip from .293 to .230 is troubling. Moroff has the ability to play second base, shortstop or third base, but he's behind Adam Frazier on the depth chart. He's never hit more than eight homers in the minors and he's not the most successful base thief -- he's swiped 62 bases in 108 career attempts -- but the Pirates are only grooming him for a potential utility role with a low ceiling.

2016

Moroff landed on Pittsburgh’s prospect radar in 2015, compiling a slash line of .293/.374/.409 with seven homers and 51 RBI for Double-A Altoona. He played primarily second base, a potential area of need with the departure of keystone incumbent Neil Walker. Named the Pirates’ minor league player of the year, Moroff will likely start the season at Altoona with a potential midseason promotion to Triple-A Indy. The infielder batted .233 and .244 in 2013 and 2014, respectively, so fantasy owners will need to first make sure 2015 wasn’t an outlier season.
