Looking big-league ready
OFPittsburgh Pirates  AAA
April 29, 2022
Mitchell has hit .305/.391/.542 with three home runs, 12 RBI and eight runs scored across 68 plate appearances with Triple-A Indianapolis to begin the 2022 campaign.
ANALYSIS
Mitchell is among a number of Indianapolis outfielders who seem capable of making an impact at the big-league level in 2022. However, he has emerged as the standout of that group by making a lot of quality contact. He has only a 12.1 percent strikeout rate and has combined that with a .246 ISO thanks to eight extra-base hits across 66 plate appearances. With Travis Swaggerty struggling to produce at the dish, Mitchell could get the next opportunity to upgrade either of the corner outfield spots in Pittsburgh.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
If a left-handed hitter slashes .258/.325/.409 in 385 PA against righties and .357/.413/.490 in 110 PA against southpaws in his Low-A debut as a 19-year-old, it means one of three things. He either got lucky in a small sample against same-handed pitchers, got unlucky in a large sample against righties, or has natural reverse platoon splits. The best-case scenario would be that Mitchell was unlucky against righties, but that is also the least likely scenario -- his .347 BABIP for the season was perfectly in line with his line-drive-oriented approach. The 50th overall pick in 2017, Mitchell is a below-average runner who is destined for left field, so he needs to hit a ton. While he is excellent at getting the ball in the air, he struggles to use the whole field (26.1 Oppo%). There are plenty of evaluators who think his ability to lace line drives (28.4 LD%) will lead to a plus hit tool, but there are valid reasons to be skeptical of that at this stage.
