James Anderson takes in some more Midwest League action, and has some questions about the Cubs' highly-touted Low-A outfield trio of Eddy Martinez, Eloy Jimenez and Donnie Dewees.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
A second-round pick out of North Florida in 2015, Dewees is a speedy center fielder with a leadoff hitter-type build. The left-hander slashed .284/.338/.416 in 129 games across two levels, finishing the season at High-A. Dewees does not draw quite as many walks as hoped, though he also does not strike out a ton. In addition, the 23-year-old swiped 31 bases while being caught just five times in 2016. While power is not one of his main assets, Dewees did club five home runs, and was still productive in driving in runs, tallying 73 RBI in those 129 contests. The outfield for the Cubs is certainly crowded for the foreseeable future, but Dewees is still a couple of years away from making a big-league impact. He will return to High-A to begin the 2017 season, with the chance to end the year at Double-A if he shines.
It is certainly early in Dewees’ pro career, but the Cubs may have hit on another college bat near the top of the draft. Chicago nabbed the speedy center fielder with the 47th overall pick in the 2015 draft, and he immediately made an impact in 66 games with short-season Eugene. The 5-foot-11 University of North Florida product hit .266 with 19 steals (on 26 attempts) in 303 plate appearances in the Northwest League. Power is not a big part of the profile, but Dewees managed five home runs in his first taste of pro ball, so it is possible that he could hit 10-15 home runs annually in the big leagues. In order for him to hit atop an order at the highest level, he will need to improve upon the 4.6% walk rate he posted with the Emeralds, and that will determine whether he becomes a fantasy asset or a waiver wire fill-in.
