2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Basabe changed colors in the offseason, going from the Red Sox to the White Sox in the Chris Sale deal. As a 19-year-old in the Low-A South Atlantic League, he held his own in his first year at a full-season affiliate. After a terrible start, the switch-hitting prospect hit .264/.328/.452 with 12 homers and 25 stolen bases for Greenville against competition at least two years older on average. He's raw, only taking up the sport within a couple of years prior to signing, but the White Sox are getting a plus defender in center field with beguiling upside. A 6-foot, 160-pounder, he possesses plus speed and good instincts on the basepaths. He has surprising power, grading out as average-to-plus, and his ability to square up the ball to all fields. Where Basabe's game falls down is in his contact rate and overall hit tool. He's struck out 27.5 percent of the time the last two seasons. The uncertainty with the bat opens up a wide spectrum of future outcomes.

2016

Basabe, 18, signed as an international free agent in 2012, and got his first action above rookie ball in 2015, slashing .243/.340/.401 in 256 plate appearances for the short-season Lowell in the New York-Penn League. He's a switch-hitting, athletic center fielder with projectable tools, but he is still quite raw. An aggressive approach leads to a lot of swing-and-miss, but he complements that with a good walk rate and he should improve his pitch recognition as he gains more experience. At 6-foot and 170 pounds, Basabe still has some filling out to do, which will lead to more power, which is intriguing considering he was already able to hit seven homers for the Spinners. He also boasts plus speed, having swiped a team-leading 15 bags last season. Defensively, he's got good range and showed off his above-average arm, throwing out eight baserunners from the outfield. There is a lot of risk and lead time involved with owning Basabe in dynasty leagues, but it is a worthwhile bet on tools in leagues where more than 200 prospects are rostered.
