March 12, 2018
Dewees was sent down to minor-league camp Monday, Rustin Dodd of The Athletic Kansas City reports.
ANALYSIS
Dewees had a solid spring training as he went 7-for-18 with two RBI and one stolen base in 13 games. He continues to impress with both his bat and his speed and will look to build on this performance in the minors. He'll likely start the year at Double-A Northwest Arkansas.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
A second-round pick out of North Florida in 2015, Dewees is a speedy center fielder with a leadoff hitter-type build. The left-hander slashed .284/.338/.416 in 129 games across two levels, finishing the season at High-A. Dewees does not draw quite as many walks as hoped, though he also does not strike out a ton. In addition, the 23-year-old swiped 31 bases while being caught just five times in 2016. While power is not one of his main assets, Dewees did club five home runs, and was still productive in driving in runs, tallying 73 RBI in those 129 contests. The outfield for the Cubs is certainly crowded for the foreseeable future, but Dewees is still a couple of years away from making a big-league impact. He will return to High-A to begin the 2017 season, with the chance to end the year at Double-A if he shines.
It is certainly early in Dewees’ pro career, but the Cubs may have hit on another college bat near the top of the draft. Chicago nabbed the speedy center fielder with the 47th overall pick in the 2015 draft, and he immediately made an impact in 66 games with short-season Eugene. The 5-foot-11 University of North Florida product hit .266 with 19 steals (on 26 attempts) in 303 plate appearances in the Northwest League. Power is not a big part of the profile, but Dewees managed five home runs in his first taste of pro ball, so it is possible that he could hit 10-15 home runs annually in the big leagues. In order for him to hit atop an order at the highest level, he will need to improve upon the 4.6% walk rate he posted with the Emeralds, and that will determine whether he becomes a fantasy asset or a waiver wire fill-in.
