PROJECTED 2015 SEASON STATS
1. Tyler Flowers, CWS CYEARABRHRRBIBBKSBAVGOBPSLGOPS
2014 Statistics407421550251590.241.297.396.693

2015 Outlook: Flowers ascended through the minors as a legitimate prospect with the Braves and even cracked some top-100 lists back in 2009 and 2010, but he has never been able to turn that minor league promise (.876 OPS in 2,233 PA) into major league production. A guy who strikes out too often is said to have a hole in his swing; with a career strikeout rate of 35 percent in 1,034 PA as a major leaguer, Flowers seems to have seven or eight in his. The power is somewhat alluring, especially in two-catcher leagues, but how much longer will the White Sox dole out playing time to a late-20s backstop who isn't showing any real signs of improvement?
2. Geovany Soto, CWS CYEARABRHRRBIBBKSBAVGOBPSLGOPS
2014 Statistics8081116190.250.302.363.665
2015 Projections1471951613430.238.300.395.695
2015 Outlook: Currently a free agent, Soto has been a serviceable hitter at catcher for the past couple of years and could land in several places if he's willing to take a low-commitment deal. The former Rookie of the Year is now 31 and can either be a premium backup or low-ceiling starter for certain teams. He was able to cut down from his astronomical 32.6 percent strikeout rate in 2013 to a better, but still high, 21.8 percent. That should be encouraging for potential buyers, as it reduces the likelihood of the batting-average free fall that can sometimes hit high-strikeout veterans. We won't know Soto's role or the number of starts he gets until he signs with a team, so a true outlook will have to wait until he puts pen to paper.
