RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The Mariners selected Lewis, the college hitter with the most realistic in-game power in the class, with the 11th overall pick in the 2016 draft. He got off to a great start to his career before everything came to a screeching halt in late July. He required ACL reconstruction surgery after suffering a horrific right knee injury that also included tears to his medial and lateral meniscus during a slide in a game for short-season Everett. In the 20 games before the injury, Lewis hit .364 with a 1.114 OPS and was likely on the verge of a promotion to Low-A Clinton. His offseason recovery is on track, and he is expected to be back to full strength in July or August of this season. There will be some rust to knock off, and he may have less than two months of minor league game action waiting for him when he returns, so 2017 could amount to a lost season. However, the upside of a cleanup-hitting outfielder with an all-fields approach remains, and dynasty league owners would be wise to take the long view.
