Diamondbacks | Peter O'Brien impressing D-backs

Wed, 25 Feb 2015 14:14:34 -0800

Arizona Diamondbacks C Peter O'Brien, who is likely to start the 2015 season in the minors, has impressed the coaching staff so far in spring, mainly for his power swing. The D-backs also think he's improved enough defensively to remain behind the plate.

Fantasy Tip: Unless the D-backs make a trade to acquire Dioner Navarro from the Toronto Blue Jays are look somewhere else, they're primed to enter the season with Tuffy Gosewisch as their starting backstop. O'Brien slugged 34 home runs in three minor league stops last year, and his power looks to be for real. He's strictly an NL-only option for 2015, but he could have some utility in daily games if he comes up at some point this season.

Arizona Diamondbacks C Peter O'Brien is one of the best offensive players in the minors, according to general manager Kevin Towers.

Fantasy Tip: O'Brien has 33 home runs and 70 RBIs across two levels this season. He should be on your radar in deep keeper/dynasty formats. However, his .245 batting average and .296 on-base percentage at Double-A Trenton highlight he is likely a couple years away.
