Carter Kieboom: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The 28th overall pick in the 2016 draft, Kieboom was seen as a polished high school shortstop without a true standout tool, but average to above average ability almost across the board. That scouting report didn't exactly bear fruit in his professional debut, as he hit just .244 with 43 strikeouts in 36 games in the Gulf Coast League, but plenty of prospects have gone on to excellent careers after struggling as 18-year-olds in their debuts. Long term he may outgrow shortstop and move to third base, but he has the arm for the position, and his ultimate fantasy value will depend on how his power stroke develops as he likely won't offer much on the basepaths. He's not an elite dynasty asset by any means, but assuming he bounces back in 2017, Kieboom figures to provide the Nationals with solid production with both his glove and his bat beginning in the early 2020s.
