RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Tomlinson started the year in the majors as a backup infielder for the Giants. He suffered a thumb injury in June and was placed on the 15-day DL, but a crowded roster prevented him from getting back to the big leagues until rosters expanded in September. The speedy infielder batted .292 with 13 runs and five steals in 120 plate appearances, but he slugged just .330, showing that he is much more of a contact hitter than a player that can put a charge into the ball. Despite the lack of power, his 2016 totals would have been valuable from a middle infielder if they were prorated over the course of a full season. He also swiped 12 bags in 202 plate appearances with Triple-A Sacramento and is only two seasons removed from a 49-steal minor league season. The problem for Tomlinson is that the Giants have a crowded infield up the middle, so it would take an injury or a trade to open up significant playing time. Barring those unforeseen events, he should resume his role as a backup infielder in 2017.

2016

Joe Panik's placement on the DL with a back injury in early August created an opportunity for Tomlinson, who was a 12th-round pick by the Giants in 2011. Tomlinson had displayed decent contact skills and a proficiency on the basepaths throughout his minor league career, including at the upper levels during the first four months of 2015. While he struck out more often and was only 5-for-9 on stolen-base attempts while with the big club, his audition goes down as a success because he beat up on left-handed pitching (.913 OPS). The power was surprising - Tomlinson has only eight total home runs in five minor league seasons - but the 25-year-old has experience playing shortstop and could be in the running for a utility job this spring.
