Brandon Dixon
27-Year-Old First Baseman1B
Detroit Tigers AAA
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Dixon made his big-league debut at age 26 with the Reds last year and struggled at the plate, hitting .178/.218/.356 in 124 plate appearances. It's tough enough to hit well in your first exposure to major-league pitching, and harder still when you do it as a pinch-hitter and utility player, which was Dixon's role last season. He'll likely reprise the same role with the Tigers in 2019 if he makes the team, after they claimed him off waivers in the offseason. Read Past Outlooks

Optioned to Triple-A

March 21, 2019
Dixon was optioned to Triple-A Toledo on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Dixon was a long shot to break camp with the Tigers, and his .171/.286/.371 line in camp didn't do much to help his case. He'll wait for an injury to open up a roster spot.

Minor League Barometer: Farming in Pittsburgh
June 13, 2016
Jesse Siegel tunes us into what's happening with some of the minors' most interesting prospects this week, including a couple Bucs -- like Tyler Glasnow and Austin Meadows -- that could get a shot in the bigs soon.
2018 Fantasy Outlook
Dixon turned 26 this offseason and has yet to reach the majors. He is also a below-average defender, pretty much everywhere, so it's hard to see where he would fit on a big-league roster. Nonetheless, he will get his chance to earn a spot this spring after going undrafted in the Rule 5 draft this offseason. He has above-average power to the pull side and is an above-average runner, so if he were given a shot, Dixon could gain relevancy in deeper leagues. However, his top three positions are third base, first base and left field. The Reds have Eugenio Suarez and top prospect Nick Senzel at third base, Joey Votto at first base and five big-league outfielders in the fold who are better than Dixon. His upside hinges on playing time so that he can accrue counting stats, and it's hard to envision how he would get that playing time in 2018.
