RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

If there were any doubts about Bryant's ability to ascend to MVP levels of production following an impressive debut in 2015, the uncertainty was erased by the performance in his sophomore campaign. Bryant trimmed the fat from his 30.6 percent strikeout rate as a rookie to 22.0 percent last season, pushing his batting average up 17 points by swinging-and-missing less often, and by making contact on pitches outside the strike zone at an increased rate. It's hard to believe, but Bryant's raw power could push his home-run total even higher, though the pitcher-friendly tendencies of Wrigley Field are on the short list of things working again him (22 of his 39 homers came on the road). In addition to his step forward at the plate, Bryant's defense at third base has improved to the point where he's become an asset with the glove, quelling concerns about a full-time move to another corner spot for the foreseeable future.

2016

Bryant was called up in April and went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in his debut. That was the last time a fantasy owner had a problem with him. The National League's top rookie just missed driving in 100 runs, and with 26 home runs, 87 runs, and a surprising 13 stolen bases, he was one of the top fantasy players around in 2015. Yes, he still strikes out too much (30.6% K-rate), but he draws plenty of walks (11.8% walk rate) and only Giancarlo Stanton and Bryce Harper receive higher power grades in the National League. All signs are pointing up for the third baseman, but his .275 batting average was fueled by a .383 BABIP, so it's possible his first 40-home-run season could be accompanied by a .250 batting average if that figure normalizes. Prospective owners can live with that.

2015

We knew this guy was good, but Bryant's power as a 23-year-old third baseman makes him the top prospect in all of baseball. Bryant destroyed the Southern League in half a season with Double-A Tennessee, and he didn't slow down when he was promoted to Triple-A Iowa. While he struck out a lot - a combined 162 times in 2014 - he also drew 43 walks apiece in his two stops. He doesn't have much left to prove in the minors, so expect him to win a spot at the hot corner for the Cubs this year. It may not happen on Opening Day, however, as the Cubs stand to benefit from having Bryant spend a few weeks at Triple-A Iowa to prevent him from accruing a full year of service time in 2015.

2014

In an organization full of shiny hitting prospects, Bryant may shine the brightest. The second pick in the 2013 draft only has 128 professional at-bats under his belt, and his defense at the hot corner is underwhelming, but his power is through the roof and he's been known to draw a walk or two. And just in case anyone didn't notice, he raked in the AFL as well. While he'll probably start the year at Double-A Tennessee, he should move up very quickly and could see action in Chicago sometime in 2014. Put a star next to his name so you don't forget him.
