Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
A variety of factors converged for Lewis’ 2017 to be pretty underwhelming, as he joined the other top outfielders from the 2016 draft (Mickey Moniak, Corey Ray, Blake Rutherford) who saw their dynasty-league stock take a significant hit. He returned from ACL reconstruction surgery in mid June, but missed time at several points in the season with soreness in his surgically repaired right knee, and when he played, he clearly didn’t have the same explosiveness in his lower half. Lewis was also sent straight to High-A after never playing above short-season ball, so the aggressive jump in competition didn’t help matters. It could simply be chalked up as a lost season, but a 22-year-old hitter with barely any full-season success on his resume is a tough sell in shallower leagues. Plus-plus raw power remains, but he faces an uphill battle to renew the promise of a future middle-of-the-order right fielder. He tweaked his knee again and was sent home from the Arizona Fall League, so health concerns persist.
The Mariners selected Lewis, the college hitter with the most realistic in-game power in the class, with the 11th overall pick in the 2016 draft. He got off to a great start to his career before everything came to a screeching halt in late July. He required ACL reconstruction surgery after suffering a horrific right knee injury that also included tears to his medial and lateral meniscus during a slide in a game for short-season Everett. In the 20 games before the injury, Lewis hit .364 with a 1.114 OPS and was likely on the verge of a promotion to Low-A Clinton. His offseason recovery is on track, and he is expected to be back to full strength in July or August of this season. There will be some rust to knock off, and he may have less than two months of minor league game action waiting for him when he returns, so 2017 could amount to a lost season. However, the upside of a cleanup-hitting outfielder with an all-fields approach remains, and dynasty league owners would be wise to take the long view.
