It is easy to dream on Fox, a likely shortstop with the speed to steal 30-plus bases annually, but after two years in pro ball, he is still much more projection than substance. He rode a .371 BABIP to a .278 average at Low-A -- by far his best mark in three pro stops. However, that average was driven by a lot of weak contact, with 78.6 percent of his hits going for singles, leading to a .083 ISO -- a bottom 20 mark in the Midwest League. He is never going to be a plus defender or significant power threat, so he will need to get on base at a really solid clip to profile as a regular. Even though he struggled mightily to do damage after a promotion to High-A, he still walked at a 9.2 percent clip, so there is reason to be optimistic in that regard. If everything clicks, he’ll be a throwback shortstop who hits for a high average, gets on base at a .360 clip and is a force on the bases.

  2. Lucius Fox 2017 Preseason Outlook
    The switch-hitting Fox was sent to Tampa from San Francisco in the Matt Moore deal, but missed several weeks upon arrival with a bone bruise in his foot. The 19-year-old shortstop boasts excellent speed and there's hope he can add some power in time. Given his age, his game is naturally still in need of plenty of seasoning, but his athleticism is believed to be more than sufficient to allow him to eventually thrive at the big-league level. A season at full health should provide much a better perspective of where Fox is in his development and what his trajectory may look like.
  3. Lucius Fox 2016 Preseason Outlook
    Fox is one of the more intriguing international free agents, as he moved from Florida (where he played high school baseball) to his birthplace, the Bahamas, so that he could sign as an international free agent. He was the No. 4 international prospect according to Baseball America, and happened to turn 18 on the day he signed. Fox is an excellent athlete with great speed and a good feel for hitting from both sides of the plate. The potential five-tool player could end up at shortstop or in center field. Given his age and talent, he should be considered one of the most appealing dynasty league prospects from this signing period. With the Giants having middle infield covered for the near future, it would make sense for them to attempt to convert Fox into their center fielder of the future.
