RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Chapman has done almost all of his damage at Stockton, a park notorious for artificially boosting the stock of hitting prospects, and Midland, which also favors hitters. He sold out for power at Double-A, posting a 29.2 percent strikeout rate, and was even more power-hungry after a brief promotion to Triple-A, notching just a 101 wRC+ despite hitting seven home runs in 18 games. This is not the first time an A's hitting prospect has boosted their stock at High-A and Double-A, but Renato Nunez and Matt Olson, for instance, are younger, have reached the big leagues, and have shown the ability to make contact at an acceptable clip in the upper levels of the minors. Chapman has more raw power than those two, but he may also have the worst hit tool of the three. Unless he can close some of the holes in his swing, Chapman seems destined to occupy the short side of a platoon. With Ryon Healy's emergence, that may come in right field or at DH.

2016

Chapman was the A's first-round selection in 2014, and that pick started paying dividends in 2015, as he slugged 23 homers at High-A Stockton in only 304 at-bats. Chapman greatly improved his walk rate from 3.5% in 2014 to 11.1% in 2015 while keeping his strikeouts stable. His ISO of .316 was extremely promising and most scouting reports rave about his raw power. Chapman projects to be a solid third baseman on defense and possesses a gigantic arm he actually pitched at Cal State Fullerton and threw in the mid-90s. He was scheduled to play in the 2015 Arizona Fall League, but a lingering wrist injury caused him to skip it. Assuming the wrist is healed by the spring, Chapman will probably begin the season in Double-A with his likely debut in Oakland coming in 2017.

2015

Chapman was the A's first-round pick in 2014 out of Cal State Fullerton. The third baseman received 207 professional at-bats in 2014, mostly at Low-A Beloit, where he hit only .246 with five homers. His plate discipline still needs to be refined, as he struck out 47 times in 2014 while only walking eight times. There was some concern about the amount of swing-and-miss in Chapman's approach entering the draft, but he could become a good right-handed bat in time. If Chapman fails to stick as a position player, he could eventually surface as a late-inning reliever, as he touches 98 mph with his fastball. As a position player, Chapman profiles as a gap power hitter with solid bat speed and a cannon of an arm at the hot corner. He could move through the system reasonably quickly if he puts the contact concerns to rest, and the A's are likely to assign him to High-A Stockton to begin 2015.
