Profile: Kiermaier's outcomes are remarkably stable for a player with barely three years of service in the big leagues. The elite glove has always been ahead of his bat, as his offensive approach at times belies someone trying to hit 30 homers rather than utilizing his speed by spraying the ball around the diamond and putting pressure on the defense to make the timely throw. He uses mostly a pull approach at the plate and is susceptible to pitches up in the zone, with a tendency to roll over on pitches to the outer third -- leading to mostly harmless ground balls to the pull side that he makes close with his speed. He was an above-average hitter both before and after a hand injury, but the second half saw him become a much more patient hitter and an aggressive base-stealer for the first time in his career. (Jason Collette)

The Quick Opinion: Fifteen of his 21 steals came in the second half of the 2016 season, as he took full advantage of a .343 on-base percentage. If he can focus on reaching base more and chasing pitches up and away less, he could set career highs in average, runs, and steals in '17.
