2019 Fantasy Outlook
Facing a pivotal year, Siri couldn't have started 2018 on worse note. He suffered ligament damage in his left thumb crashing into the wall during spring training and began the year on the DL. He returned with a bang for High-A Daytona, going 8-for-18 with a homer and three doubles in his first four games, but then stalled, ultimately hitting .261/.280/.395 in 30 games there. Because of his age, he was promoted to Double-A Pensacola to get him closer to being on the proper track, and with that promotion also came his power. Alas, it came at the expense of him being able to hit for average. Siri's inability to make consistent contact (64% at Pensacola) bodes ill for his potential to hit big-league pitching, thus limiting the likelihood that his speed/mid-power package ever plays.

Siri went 3-for-5 with a pair of home runs and four RBI in Double-A Pensacola's 11-3 win over Jacksonville on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
The three-hit performance yielded a 26-point jump in Siri's batting average, with the 22-year-old now slashing .231/.287/.505 in just under a month at Double-A. Siri, who set a Midwest League record last season with a 39-game hitting streak at Low-A Dayton, hasn't maintained the improved contact skills he displayed in 2017. Over stops at Pensacola and High-A Daytona this season, Siri has struck out in 30.8 percent of his plate appearances, which has mitigated the impact of his power and stolen-base production.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Siri's 2017 season at Low-A is a perfect example of a false positive in the prospect world. He hit 24 home runs, stole 46 bases, had a 39-game hit streak and hit .293 in his first full season above rookie ball, yet he is not a top-100 prospect for dynasty leagues. Age relative to level is extremely important when evaluating prospects, and Siri, who turned 22 in July, has not played above the Midwest League. His Dayton teammate Taylor Trammell, a top-25 prospect, is over two years younger. Vladimir Guerrero Jr., the best prospect in the Midwest League last year, is almost four years younger than Siri. It also doesn't help that Siri was barely a prospect of note before last season. The 6-foot-2, 175-pound outfielder has some exciting tools (plus-plus speed, above-average power), but his hit tool remains questionable. His 0.25 BB/K was the eighth-worst mark in the league. If he were 18 or 19, that would be fine, but given his age, he is one bad season away from essentially being a non-prospect (see Aristides Aquino).
