Pinder didn't make the big club coming out of camp, but an injury to Marcus Semien resulted in his callup from Triple-A Nashville in mid-April. Pinder spent the rest of the season with the Athletics, though he did miss a little more than five weeks mid-season with a hamstring before having his season truncated via a concussion in late September. All told, the utility man appeared in 87 games, playing second base, shortstop and all three outfield spots, along with a handful of games at designated hitter. That's Pinder's likely role heading into 2018, offering a power bat off the bench while giving one of the regulars a day off a couple times a week. Pinder hit double-digit homers at three levels in the minors, so popping 15 in 208 plate appearances wasn't a shock. However, a 29.8 percent strikeout rate tempers his average, exposing him when playing full time. Pinder is the ideal endgame play in AL-only. He'll get his at-bats, but without a regular job, he won't draw much interest.

  2. Chad Pinder 2017 Preseason Outlook
    Pinder scraped out 22 major league games last year and failed to make a major impact. Though he had an encouraging stint at High-A Stockton in 2014 and has smacked double-digit homers in his last two minor league years, although he has often been taking advantage of very favorable hitting conditions. He occupied the bottom half of an A's platoon with Joey Wendle at second base near the end of 2016, but with Jed Lowrie presumably fully recovered from toe surgery, Pinder may open 2017 as a bench bat. He has enough defensive versatility and may display enough offense across the board -- including sneaky stolen-base ability -- to gain fantasy value as a compiler if he is ever given a regular role. However, he may need an injury ahead of him to receive that shot, and it would have to happen fairly quickly, as top prospect Franklin Barreto is nearing the majors and figures to slot in alongside Marcus Semien to form Oakland's double-play duo of the future.
  3. Chad Pinder 2016 Preseason Outlook
    Pinder built on his success at High-A in 2014 with another strong season at Double-A Midland. Pinder finished the year at .317 with an .847 OPS with 15 homers and 86 RBI over 477 at-bats. Back-to-back years with an OPS over .800 has elevated Pinder's stock within the A's system, especially with the trades of other shortstops, Addison Russell and Daniel Robertson. Even more exciting is how Pinder improved as the year progressed, hitting .340 after June 1st with a nearly .900 OPS. The 2013 2nd round pick out of VPI was rewarded for his season by being named the 2015 Texas League Player of the Year. Pinder had one of the best years in the A's farm system and could make an appearance in the Majors in the second half if he continues hitting.
  4. Chad Pinder 2015 Preseason Outlook
    Pinder, a second-round pick in 2013, spent his first full professional season at High-A Stockton in 2014. He had a nice first year, putting up a .824 OPS with 13 homers, 12 steals and 32 doubles over 403 at-bats. The extra-base hits were very nice after he managed only seven of them in 140 at-bats with Low-A Beloit in 2013. The A's front office has indicated that Pinder played though multiples wrist injuries in 2014, so it is possible that his offensive production could jump yet again in 2015. He moved to second base in 2014, likely because the A's already had stud shortstop prospect Addison Russell in the system, but it is possible that Pinder could be moved back to shortstop since the A's have since dealt Russell to the Cubs and Daniel Robertson to to the Rays.
