Keon Broxton 2019 Outlook

Recommended Posts

If he is an everyday player, he’s a nice sleeper pick for the power/speed combo. The problem is I don’t know that the Mets will commit to him with Lagares’ defense

Broxton is a plus defender. So that shouldn't be the issue. Broxton just needs to out hit him.

Wouldn’t be surprised to see not-quite full time ABs for Broxton. Still, 400 AB could yield “close to” 20-20, which is valuable late in a draft, even with the bad AVG.

He does have the power and speed to be a very useful player. it certainly looks like he has a better chance with the Mets  and likely should be monitor as we head into spring training and the season!

If he can cut down on the strikeouts some, a sleeper with playing time.

Keon has a 36.5% K% in MLB. He's gonna have to cut down on that if he wants significant playing time. Although, I do love his overall athleticism and his HR and SB abilities.

Well Lagares cannot stay healthy so Broxton should get plenty of AB. I believe that's also the reason the Mets made the trade, they can't count on Lagares to be healthy for 100+ games. 

 

Lagares doesn't need to hit to be valuable though. He was a 2.3 fWAR player in 2014 despite being well below average at the plate. It's going to be interesting to see who will get the starting job to start the season (assuming both are healthy).

Broxton is also a good defender in CF.  So the Mets don't lose much in defense, while potentially picking up an upgrade on offense by using Broxton.

Broxton is a defensive replacement/pinch runner. He can't hit. He just has no idea at the plate and guesses. Good 5th OF on back of MLB roster.

Sounds like McNeil is going to transition to full time OF this year to start against RHP.  So much for Broxton having any value this year.  I was hoping he could be a cheap source of 10-15 HR and 15-20 SB.

I just saw that about McNeil.  A lot can happen, but not good news for Broxton's PT.
