PROJECTED 2015 SEASON STATS

2015 Outlook: In 2013, Gillaspie managed a hint of value by popping 13 home runs, but he didn't contribute positively anywhere else, which certainly limited his appeal. In 2014, it looked like he traded some of that power output for incremental gains everywhere else, but in actuality he collected a ton of base hits in the first two months of the season (.351 AVG) while being held homerless,s and then spent the final four months as the guy we saw in 2013 (.255 AVG, 7 home runs). It was still an improved season, but this isn't exactly a growth stock ready to explode. He likely deserved at least a few more home runs based on his batted-ball profile, but combining the double-digit power with the .282 AVG seems unlikely especially as someone with a playing-time cap based on his inability to hit lefties.

2015 Outlook: Remember the promise Beckham showed as a rookie back in 2009? How could you? It was ages ago! Perhaps most impressive about Beckham is the fact that he has averaged more than 500 PA per season in the five years since, despite never coming anywhere near that level, which, by the way, wasn't even all that special (.808 OPS in 430 PA). WAR isn't necessarily a fantasy-relevant statistic, but it is worth noting that he had 2.5 WAR according to Fangraphs in that 2009 debut but has accumulated just 2.8 since then. If you can't force your child to be left-handed so he can pitch in the majors until he's 53 years old, you should at least make sure he can somewhat adequately man multiple infield positions because that will extend a baseball career by years as well.
