An offseason trade sent Wendle to Tampa Bay from Oakland, where he had steadily been toiling in Triple-A. Wendle has consistency on his side; in each of the past three seasons, he has appeared in at least 118 Triple-A games and recorded an OPS between .756 and .776. Unfortunately, that means Wendle hasn't exhibited the growth the Athletics wanted to see in order to give him a chance to become their starting second baseman. Wendle has neither the pop nor the plate discipline to fully overcome his strikeout problem, as he has struck out 308 times against just 67 walks over those three Triple-A campaigns. Expect him to open up the season as a backup to Daniel Robertson at second base in Tampa, but if Robertson is as underwhelming in 2018 as he was in 2017 (.634 OPS, five home runs in 218 at-bats), Wendle could get his first big-league opportunity for a starting job.

  2. Joey Wendle 2017 Preseason Outlook
    In 2015 and 2016 with Triple-A Nashville, Wendle hit .285 while averaging 11 home runs, 80.5 runs, 59 RBI and 13 stolen bases - useful numbers, to say the least, for someone who hasn't really been considered a top prospect playing in a poor hitters' park. Despite his 6-foot-1, 189-pound frame, he delivers crisp swings. Oakland even tried him in the leadoff spot against right-handed pitching after calling him up in September. There's a lot of Joe Panik in him, for better or worse. It doesn't seem like he'll excel in any single counting category. When a player is heavily reliant on batting average for fantasy value, plenty can go wrong, especially for someone who isn't an automatic .300 hitter or an elite prospect. Wendle may get another shot in 2017, though Jed Lowrie could push him for at-bats if he can recover from foot surgery. He has a slightly intriguing power-speed mix, but not enough to suggest that he's an attractive piece outside of AL-only formats.
