2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

The dominant narrative with Bader seems to be his dramatic decline in production after being promoted from the Texas League (143 wRC+) to the Pacific Coast League (74 wRC+). However, his splits against right-handed pitching should be what really troubles his dynasty league owners. He rode a 1.375 OPS against lefties at Low-A to prominence last offseason, and boosted his mark against southpaws even further to 1.485 OPS at Double-A in 2016. All the while, Bader was a middling hitter against righties, putting up splits of .270/.337/.399 and .249/.319/.377 at Low-A and Double-A, respectively. His solid defense in center field, above-average speed and ability to crush left-handed pitching will undoubtedly get him to the big leagues at some point in the next year or two, but it seems likely that he will be limited to a part-time role. Look to deal him before this reality becomes common knowledge.

2016

The 100th overall pick in the 2015 draft started his professional career as well as any player in his class. Bader, a late bloomer with the stick out of the University of Florida, received a promotion to Low-A Peoria after posting a 1.055 OPS in seven games with short-season State College. He clearly needed more of a challenge, and he handled that challenge, posting a .301/.364/.505 slash line with nine home runs and 15 steals in 228 plate appearances. Despite being slightly younger than the average player at that level, Baderís .869 OPS would have been tied for the second best mark in the Midwest League if he had enough plate appearances to qualify. His 49:15 K:BB in 61 games suggests he has the approach to continue his success in an assignment to High-A Palm Beach as a 21-year-old, and if he continues to rake, the 6-foot center fielder could find himself at Double-A shortly after he turns 22 on June 3.
