RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Following an oblique injury, Pham spent much of the season's first half at Triple-A Memphis before returning to the big club. Then, following the All-Star break, he struggled even further and hit to the tune of .219/.321/.421. When healthy, Pham showed neither the ability to be a reliable everyday player nor any semblance of plate discipline. He made contact on just 66.1 percent of his swings and struck out in nearly 40 percent of his plate appearances. Pham was also helpless against left-handed pitchers, who held the right-handed bat to a .206 batting average. He has an interesting combination of power and speed that could be useful to fantasy owners if he was ever given the strong side of an outfield platoon for a full season, but that does not seem likely in St. Louis after Dexter Fowler was signed to be the everyday center fielder going forward.

2016

Pham turns 28 prior to the 2016 season but he finally got his first extended look at the major league level in the second half of 2015 and delivered nicely for the Cardinals and his fantasy owners alike, slashing .268/.347/.477. He also recorded 17 XBH, five of them triples, scoring 28 runs and swiping two bases. Pham provided solid defense in center field for the Cardinals and could be the team's top defensive reserve outfielder.

2015

At age 26, Pham is a little too old to still be considered a prospect, but the outfielder hit well enough for Triple-A Memphis to earn a September callup to the Cardinals. He only made six appearances and received just two at-bats, striking out in both. It's extremely unlikely that Pham ever develops into a major league regular but it's certainly possible that he could carve out a role similar to the one Shane Robinson played in 2014; getting a few starts a month, but primarily used as a bat or glove off the bench. It's also just as likely that Pham could end up a career minor leaguer. Even though he hit well in 2014, his career slash line is a much less pleasant .253/.336/.408.
