RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Benintendi had a whirlwind year, from being drafted in the summer of 2015 to reaching the majors in the summer of 2016. The 22-year-old started the 2016 season at High-A Salem where he needed just 34 games before getting a bump up to Double-A Portland. He was challenged in the Eastern League, but eventually adjusted and raked to the tune of a .323/.389/.586 line over his final 50 games. That was just enough to convince the Red Sox to call him up to Boston to provide production out of left field, a new position for him. There were some shaky defensive moments out there, but he made all he plays. At the plate, 14 of his 31 hits went for extra bases and he got on base at a good clip, but struggled in a small sample against left-handed pitching (28 at-bats). There's still some work to do, but he has a good approach and, as the primary left fielder, will get plenty of chances to develop his bat.

2016

Benintendi blossomed in his sophomore season at the University of Arkansas in 2015, leading the SEC in batting average (.380), home runs (20), on-base percentage (.489), slugging (.715) and walks (47) while becoming the first college baseball player to hit 20 home runs and steal 20 bases in a season since 2009. Production like that is worthy of hardware and Benintendi received it, capturing the Golden Spikes award as the top amateur baseball player in the nation as well as the SEC Player of the Year. Then it got better. As a sophomore eligible draftee, he was drafted seventh-overall by the Red Sox and continued to dominate pitchers. Benintendi adjusted to wooden bats quite well, posting a .972 OPS with 11 homers while maintaining a good approach, walking 35 times compared to 24 strikeouts, in 54 games for short-season Lowell and Low-A Greenville. Talent evaluators believe hes one of the closest 2015 draftees to the big leagues.
