RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Meibrys Viloria.
Viloria was named the MVP of the Pioneer League after winning the batting crown (.376 average, .418 BABIP) and finishing second in OPS (1.042), trailing Dodgers outfield prospect DJ Peters, who is 14 months his senior. An under-the-radar signing out of Columbia in 2013, Viloria already carries himself with a certain swagger, aptly flipping his bat and admiring his work. Even during a down year in 2015 as one of the youngest players in the Appalachian League, Viloria still posted an outstanding 17:23 BB:K in 45 games. He walked a little less in 2016, but kept his strikeout rate under 14 percent while notching 37 extra-base hits in 58 games. There are already whispers that he won't be good enough defensively to stick behind the plate, which is a bad sign for any catching prospect who has yet to play in a full-season league. His age-20 season with Lexington will serve as a chance to prove that his bat is legitimate enough for him to remain relevant even if he moves off catcher.
