Edwin Rios
25-Year-Old First Baseman1B
Los Angeles Dodgers AAA
2019 Fantasy Outlook
The first baseman was added to the Dodgers' 40-man roster in November for Rule 5 protection, but it will be hard for a player with his defensive limitations to crack one of the deepest rosters in the league. The 25-year-old's .304/.355/.482 line in 88 games for Triple-A Oklahoma City was certainly good, but it came with a 32.3% strikeout rate and was propped up by an unsustainable .433 BABIP. Scouts like Rios' big raw power, but his plate discipline is poor. The offensive bar at first base is even higher on a team as good as the Dodgers, and barring multiple injuries ahead of him on the depth chart, Rios may not see more than a handful of at-bats in Los Angeles this season.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
A pop-up first base prospect in 2016, Rios' production merited tracking, but his lack of pedigree (2015 sixth rounder), age and position pointed toward a future Quadruple-A hitter. In 2017, he did everything in his power to extinguish those concerns. After posting walk rates around four or five percent, he walked 9.5 percent of the time in his first exposure to Triple-A pitching while keeping his strikeout rate in a very manageable range (22.1 percent). He doesn't rely on pulling the ball, posting a .237 ISO in the Pacific Coast League while spraying 38.3 percent of his hits to the opposite field. Rios hits left-handed, so at worst, he would profile on the strong side of a platoon, assuming he can work his way into a regular role. He can masquerade in left field or at third base, but it's hard to envision the Dodgers sacrificing defense to that extent. He will return to Triple-A to start the season and will be ready to answer the call if there is a need on the big-league club.
A sixth-round pick out of Florida International in the 2015 draft, Rios had a productive 2016 campaign. Across three levels, the 22-year-old hit .301 with 27 home runs and 76 RBI. Red flags put a damper on the rather deceiving totals for Rios, though. He fanned 110 times in 108 games, while drawing just 24 walks. In addition, his numbers are skewed by his brief time in the hitter-friendly confines of the California League: .367 with 16 home runs and 46 RBI in 42 games for High-A Rancho Cucamonga. By contrast, Rios hit just .253 with 11 home runs and 30 RBI in 66 games at the other levels in 2016. Will the real Edwin Rios please stand up? He should open his age-23 campaign at Double-A Tulsa, where a much better sense of his trajectory will take hold.
