RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Naquin's rookie season was a mixed bag of success. He showed a willingness to accept his walks, hit for average, and smash for power as Terry Francona set him up for success in platoon matchups. Naquin does not look comfortable against lefties, so Francona used him nearly exclusively against righties, and he hit .301/.372/.526 over 325 plate appearances. A good bit of that success came from his .411 batting average on balls in play, an extremely high number. The larger issues are the limits to his playing time with the struggles against lefties and his poor outfield defense, the latter of which was on display during the postseason. The 31 percent strikeout rate will need to improve moving forward because the batting average will normalize as his BABIP comes down to a more sustainable rate. As a result, Naquin will also need to prove that his power surge is legitimate skill growth to remain in consideration in mixed formats.

2016

Naquin, a first-round pick of the Indians in 2012 out of Texas A&M, entered camp as a long shot to earn more than a reserve role for Opening Day. With Abraham Almonte on the receiving end of an 80-game suspension, regular playing time opened up in center field for the Tribe and Naquin's performance in Cactus League play has allowed him to push his way into the mix. Most likely, Naquin will share time with Rajai Davis, but considering Davis' ability to hit left-handed pitching much better than right-handed pitching, Naquin may end up on the large side of a platoon if he can carry his success from the spring into the regular season. Injuries limited Naquin to just 84 games last season, and he showed a useful combination of power and speed between Double-A Akron and Triple-A Columbus, showing more home-run power, albeit with a lower batting average after the promotion. If he's able to emerge with the regular at-bats against righties for the entire season, Naquin is a threat to rack up low double-digit totals in home runs and stolen bases.

2015

The former 15th overall pick in the 2012 draft missed the second half of 2014 with a broken hand, and he hadnít done much to distinguish himself prior to the injury. Naquin hit .313 with four home runs and 14 steals in 76 games at Double-A Akron before getting hit on the hand by a pitch in late June, but his .389 BABIP hangs over that production like a dark gray storm cloud. At 6-foot-3, 190 pounds, Naquin doesnít project to hit for much power, and that has been pretty evident in his numbers since he made the jump to Double-A towards the end of the 2013 season. He will likely begin 2015 back at Double-A, and could finish the year in Triple-A, but in the end, he profiles more as a fourth-outfielder/defensive-replacement profile than an average regular.

2014

Naquin has been a mild disappointment since being selected 15th overall in the 2012 draft, but most considered the pick a bit of a reach when the Indians selected him that high. He played well enough at High-A Carolina (.277/.345/.424 in 108 games) to get a taste of Double-A, but he'll quite likely be a better asset to the Indians than he will be as a fantasy contributor. He profiles as more of a line-drive hitter with moderate speed who needs to stay in center field, as he doesn't have the bat for a corner-outfield spot. In general, 22-year-olds from a high profile college like Texas A&M should do more at the High-A level than Naquin did, so he'll need to start producing on the field quickly to avoid being tagged as a first-round bust.

2013

Naquin was the 15th overall selection in the 2012 draft, which many considered a reach. He did not exactly light it up in the New York-Penn League (.270/.379/.380 in 36 games), but it was not a total disaster either. The Indians obviously saw some potential with his bat, but it remains to be seen how high his ceiling might be. He certainly doesn't profile as a big power corner bat, but might eventually display enough patience with decent power and speed from a center fielder. The tools that got him drafted will need to start translating to the field before he registers on most fantasy radars.
