Derek Dietrich 2014 Outlook
Posted 27 March 2014 - 10:31 AM
Looks like Dietrich is the last man standing at 2nd (Furcal DL, Solano to AAA).
Seems likely mid to low average (240-270), decent power, very little speed. His OBP is a little disguised by HBP's, but has shown throughout his career he will take one for the team so maybe that's a skill.
Not a bad deeper league and short term option if he comes out hot or if you whiffed on MI and there is nothing left (Such a ringing endorsement).
Riding cross the land, kicking up sand...

My guess would be no matter how well he plays that Furcal will start over him as soon as he's ready (if he ever is)

Still hitting well. Will he continue to get PT?
As long as Furcal is on the DL he will play every day.

Is dan uggla jr a good comparison.
He reminds me of Kelly Johnson. Definitely has some pop but not someone you want to rely on in standard leagues as an everyday fantasy option.

I like the look of this guy, and frankly I think cheap loria and the marlins are about to school the league. Most of their young players look better than advertised.

Also he has had a bad year with the glove but last year in more than double the innings he only had 2 errors vs this years 6. Also remember reading that the coach was praising his defense, but then he took a groundball off the chin in spring training. Personally, I think that is a huge reason for some of his defensive problems

He's still killing it at the plate. Could be a nice pick up for those lacking production from the 2B spot.
And now Furcal's been moved to the 60-day DL. Dietrich has some pop and is just 24 years old. Is this guy's arrow pointing way up now, especially in a keeper/dynasty?

But what is this guy doing in AAA? Let the young guy play
