Fantasy Focus: 2016 Breadkout OF's- Michael Conforto, Mikie Mahtook, Aaron Altherr

Michael Conforto, OF.  B-L, T-R.  DOB:  3/1/1993.  6'1", 215 lbs.  Organization:  Mets

2015:  .270/335/.506, 14 2B, 9 HR, 8.8 BB%, 20.1 K%, 194 PA.

I've really liked Conforto from before he was drafted.  Woulda been happy for him to be a Giant.  Dude may not be the best fielder around, but the bat is legit.  There is no reason why you cannot multiply those counting stats by 3 and get a pretty close approximation to what he can do in a full season, well, that 's if the Mets don't platoon him somehow.


Mikie Mahtook, OF.  B-R, T-R.   DOB:  11/30/1989.  6'1", 200 lbs.  Organization:  Rays

2015:  .295/.351/.619, 9 HR, 4 SB, 5.2 BB%, 27 K%, 115 PA.

Mahtook is a 5 tool player I've liked since he was in college, I think at LSU.  No, he's not going to hit 54 HR's next season, and the Rays OF situation is very crowded, but gotta love what those numbers project to over a full season of play.


Aaron Altherr, OF.  B-R, T-R.  DOB:  1/14/1991.  6'5", 215 lbs.  Organization:  Phillies

.241/.338/.489, 11 2B, 4 3B, 5 HR, 6 SB, 9.9 BB%, 25.5 K%, 161 PA.

Altherr might be better described as a Sleeper than a Breakout Candidate.  He's a big kid who has had struggles with contact in the minors, as you might expect for a guy that tall.  He's a 5 tool dude, though with excellent plate discipline and a manageable K rate.  He'll get to play with Philly rebuilding.  Could very easily end up with 20 dingers and 20 SB's.
