Profile: The 54th overall selection in the 2010 amateur draft, Eibner has been an absolute washout with the bat. He generates a lot of walks and has some raw power, but he has major contact issues that just haven’t improved enough to see him being more than a fifth outfielder at the big league level. In the field, Eibner can play all three outfield spots very well and has a rocket for an arm - which might be the key to the sophomore having a solid big league career. He actually showed a very good arm as a college pitcher and a return to the mound should really be considered after he hit just .193 in his debut season and struck out 24% of the time. After being traded from the Royals to the Athletics in 2016, his new organization will no doubt want a shot at helping him find success at the plate, so we may have to wait a bit for him to seriously consider the position change. The A’s lack of outfield depth should give Eibner a decent shot at playing time, unless Jake Smolinski hits better than expected or the club acquires a better center-field option. (Marc Hulet)

The Quick Opinion: As a hitter, Eibner is likely going to top out as a fourth or fifth outfielder at the big league level, and the majority of his value is based on his defensive skills, which is no help to fantasy managers. The best way for the 28-year-old sophomore to help in the fantasy format would be to move to the mound to take advantage of his strong arm and past experience as a college hurler.
