Profile: Lucas Duda finished 2014 and 2015 as one of the greatest hitting first basemen in major league baseball and perhaps one of the most underrated power hitters in the game. Unfortunately, his relatively minor herniated disc problem in late August of 2015 served as foreshadowing for the 2016 season. In 2016, he began the season well enough, batting .236/.306/.464 with 7 homers and 4 doubles in 124 plate appearances. Then, around the 12th of May, his performance took a nose dive, he complained of back pain, and was diagnosed with a stress fracture in his back (Spondylolysis). He sat out from May 21st through September 17th, 119 days, and returned to part time duties down the stretch. Lucas claimed to feel perfectly healthy in September, and there are many players who bounce back from similar injuries and continue to produce. All in all, 2016 must be looked at as a lost season for the soon to be 31 year old first basemen. (Andrew Perpetua)

The Quick Opinion: Duda had the 19th best wOBA and 16th most homers from 2014-2015 and was on the path to continuing the trend in 2016 prior to injury. There is always a risk of future complications and re-injury, but if Lucas Duda comes back healthy, he could be one of the single greatest bargains in the 2017 draft.
