2023 Player Outlook

Mitchell got a cup of coffee at the big league level last year, and for one of the team’s top prospects, there were definitely some encouraging numbers from his 28 games with the club. He hit .311 with a .459 SLG, two home runs, nine runs scored, and nine RBI, and he was a perfect 8-for-8 in stolen base attempts. His batting average was fueled by an insane .548 BABIP, and his .187 xBA is almost laughable. He made a lot of hard contact last year, and his average exit velocity was the same as Shohei Ohtani, Byron Buxton, and Matt Olson! The team is going to protect him against left-handed hitters, so he’ll operate in a platoon, but he also must eat into last year’s insane strikeout rate (41.2%). He wasn’t a big strikeout guy in the minors, so I expect it to come down considerably in 2023. He can flat-out fly, and even on the larger side of a platoon, he should easily join the 10/20 club this year, but the variability of his batting average is rather high. I could see him getting up to .250 or maybe even .260, but if he can’t cut back on the strikeouts, it might be closer to .215-.220.
