Oakland Athletics A+
2018 Fantasy Outlook
The A's landed one of the 2017 draft's top power hitters with the 43rd overall pick and an over-slot $1.7 million bonus. Deichmann quickly made good on his reputation, finishing second in the New York-Penn League in ISO (.256), tied for third in wRC+ (171) and tied for third in home runs (eight). His 14.4 percent walk rate and 20.5 percent strikeout rate also stand out as excellent initial marks in pro ball. He displayed an outstanding opposite-field approach (41.9 percent of hits), especially for someone with his power profile. Unfortunately, he turns 23 in May, so it's really hard to read too much into this production until he reaches Double-A or Triple-A. Of course, it's a good sign that he dominated short-season pitching -- it would have been a red flag if he had struggled. He projects as a solid defensive right fielder, at least early in his career. Deichmann may receive an aggressive assignment, skipping Low-A and going straight to High-A in 2018. Read Past Outlooks
