    Player Outlook

    Few minor leaguers broke through in a bigger way than Max Kepler did last season, demonstrating exceptional plate discipline by walking (69) more than he struck out (68) and piling up extra-base hits. He always showed a knack for putting the bat on the ball, but now he hits it to all fields -- and with enough authority to profile as a .300 hitter in the majors. He probably won't be a 25-homer guy, but he could maybe be like the good version of Melky Cabrera eventually. Kepler did get a stint in the big leagues late last season, but because he has yet to play a game at Triple-A, he's a long shot for a roster spot this spring. The Twins shouldn't have much trouble finding a place for him when he proves ready, though, making him someone to target in AL-only leagues.

    • Twins' Max Kepler: Stock trending up
      By RotoWire Staff

      Kepler should have an easier route to playing time in 2016 now that the Twins have traded Aaron Hicks to the Yankees in exchange for John Ryan Murphy. Eddie Rosario and Byron Buxton seem like locks to start most days, and while Miguel Sano has been talked about as a potential corner outfielder, the Hicks trade removes one or Kepler's potential road blocks. Kepler saw time at all three outfield spots, first base, and DH last year in the minor leagues, so his versatility should help him stay on the field. It's hard to argue that Kepler is not one of the Twins' nine best hitters on the 40-man roster, so one way or another he should find his way to 400-plus plate appearances in 2016.

      By RotoWire Staff

      Minor-league outfielder Max Kepler was called up by the Twins after Monday's game. The MVP of the Southern League, Kepler has pop and speed alike. It's unclear how he'll factor into the Twins' lineup down the stretch, as he can play all three outfield positions and first base, but all those spots are occupied
