Pham pulled a breakout season at age 29, and he and his agent are likely the only two people who saw it coming. A look at his minor-league numbers shows a guy who moved up the system at a very slow pace, hit for power just one year, stole bases in a few seasons but only hit for average here and there. He saw limited time in 2014 at the big-league level and then spent 2016 and 2017 on the short side of a platoon. Pham was finally given an opportunity to play regularly for the Cardinals last season and he thrived, hitting both righties (.310/.411/.511) and lefties (.292/.419/.552) while walking at a high rate (13.4 percent). He was also just as good in the second half as he was in the first half. Don't expect a 20-20 repeat, but Pham should be able to produce enough across the board to be worthwhile in even 10-team mixed leagues.

  2. Tommy Pham 2017 Preseason Outlook
    Following an oblique injury, Pham spent much of the season's first half at Triple-A Memphis before returning to the big club. Then, following the All-Star break, he struggled even further and hit to the tune of .219/.321/.421. When healthy, Pham showed neither the ability to be a reliable everyday player nor any semblance of plate discipline. He made contact on just 66.1 percent of his swings and struck out in nearly 40 percent of his plate appearances. Pham was also helpless against left-handed pitchers, who held the right-handed bat to a .206 batting average. He has an interesting combination of power and speed that could be useful to fantasy owners if he was ever given the strong side of an outfield platoon for a full season, but that does not seem likely in St. Louis after Dexter Fowler was signed to be the everyday center fielder going forward.
  3. Tommy Pham 2016 Preseason Outlook
    Pham turns 28 prior to the 2016 season but he finally got his first extended look at the major league level in the second half of 2015 and delivered nicely for the Cardinals and his fantasy owners alike, slashing .268/.347/.477. He also recorded 17 XBH, five of them triples, scoring 28 runs and swiping two bases. Pham provided solid defense in center field for the Cardinals and could be the team's top defensive reserve outfielder.
  4. Tommy Pham 2015 Preseason Outlook
    At age 26, Pham is a little too old to still be considered a prospect, but the outfielder hit well enough for Triple-A Memphis to earn a September callup to the Cardinals. He only made six appearances and received just two at-bats, striking out in both. It's extremely unlikely that Pham ever develops into a major league regular but it's certainly possible that he could carve out a role similar to the one Shane Robinson played in 2014; getting a few starts a month, but primarily used as a bat or glove off the bench. It's also just as likely that Pham could end up a career minor leaguer. Even though he hit well in 2014, his career slash line is a much less pleasant .253/.336/.408.

Pham appears to be progressing well through the early stages of recovery from his right foot fracture, Bill Chastain of MLB.com reports. "Said he felt much better," manager Kevin Cash said. "The pain is starting to subside. The boot is supposed to help him. I think he feels like he's closer, progressing nicely. I don't want to put a timetable on it yet, because he's still got to swing, he's got to run, all of those things, and we'll get a better sense when he does that."
