2018 Fantasy Outlook
Slater didn't make a ton of noise in his 34-game debut, but he was perfectly adequate at the dish. After getting the callup on June 2, he hit .282 with a league-average 100 wRC+ in 127 plate appearances. A torn adductor muscle in his right hip cost Slater most of the second half. He returned late in September, but only made five appearances before landing back on the shelf with a sports hernia, which required surgery. Slater's control of the strike zone is a little shaky (22.8 percent strikeout rate last year, 6.3 percent walk rate), and his home park mitigates what power he has, but he's just 25 and should at least be afforded chances against lefties to begin 2018. He can play all three outfield positions and can even man the infield in a pinch. As a reserve in NL-only, Slater makes some sense, but he will need to show more and work himself in to a bigger role before he pops up on the mixed-league radar. Read Past Outlooks
