RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

A concussion derailed May’s 2015 season. He started the year hitting .311 with a .359 on-base percentage and 25 steals in 52 games at Double-A Birmingham, but he hit a mere .235 in 200 plate appearances after returning from the injury. He fits the mold of an athletic outfielder with good speed, a solid contact rate and prowess on the basepaths. He will likely need a do-over at Double-A in 2016 before progressing through the system.
