RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Will Craig.
The 22nd overall pick in the 2016 draft got off to a rough start in rookie ball, going 4-for-30 with the West Virginia Black Bears. Craig then posted a .303/.422/.394 line the rest of the way (232 plate appearances). Pittsburgh selected the 6-foot-3, 230-pound slugger for his power but he went deep just two times and drove in 19 runs. He previously struggled with wooden bats in the Cape Cod League, so it will be interesting to track his power progress. Unfortunately, PNC Park is one of the worst locations for right-handed power hitters. Craig did continue to show fantastic plate discipline last summer, walking more frequently than he struck out (41:37 BB:K). He's a poor fielder -- registering an .889 fielding percentage at third base -- but the 22-year-old could eventually slide over to first base. He'll look to improve upon his defense in 2017 and rediscover the power stroke he displayed at Wake Forest University.
