Player Profiles

A few choppy sentences on each player’s hitting, fielding or pitching profiles.

Hitters

C Jett Bandy: Untapped power. Rocket arm.

1B Eric Thames: Massive power and OBP guy. Will strike out a fair share.

2B Jonathan Villar: Frustrating base runner. Had a lot of groundball luck in 2016. Struggles with contact.

3B Travis Shaw: Underrated power. Solid defensively.

SS Orlando Arcia: Value comes from his defense. Will struggle to hit.

LF Ryan Braun: Expect some home run regression. Still a top-notch hitter.

CF Keon Broxton: Hits the ball super hard. Strike outs are a big issue.

RF Domingo Santana: Poor defensively, too patient at the plate, but drives the ball hard and far.

C Manny Pina: Contact hitter with a little gap power.

1B Jesus Aguilar: Huge power in the minors has yet to translate in the big leagues.

INF Hernan Perez: Versatile, can play every position.

OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis: If he hits a fly ball, there’s a good chance it’s a goner. Has to make contact first, though…

INF Nick Franklin: Lots of holes in his swing…11.9% career swinging-strike rate.
