RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Luis Alejandro Basabe.
Basabe came over to the Diamondbacks in the deal that sent Brad Ziegler to the Red Sox. The young Venezuelan wasn't considered a top prospect in the Boston system, but his performance with Low-A Greenville (.310/.412/.467 line with four homers and 14 steals in 64 games) was starting to get some attention. Things didn't go as well with Low-A Kane County after the trade. In 45 games with Kane County, Basabe posted a .217/.339/.323 slash line and stole just three bases in nine attempts. Scouts like Basabe's speed, so he should be stealing bases at a higher rate. Basabe did just turn 20 in August, so there is plenty of room for growth, though Basabe might not have as high of a ceiling as his twin brother, Luis Alexander Basabe. Long term, Basabe projects as an average major league second baseman or possibly a useful utility player.
