Oscar Colas

24-Year-Old OutfielderOF
Chicago White Sox AAA
2023 Fantasy Outlook
For several years, Colas' fame has outstripped his likely MLB value, but his 2022 affiliated debut went about as good as anyone could have hoped. Chicago has fast-tracked the Cuban slugger, assigning him to High-A and then bumping him to Double-A and Triple-A in the same season. All told, he slashed .314/.371/.524 with 23 home runs in 117 games, and general manager Rick Hahn said at the general manager meetings that Colas could be the team's right fielder in 2023. His 25.6 K% and 6.2 BB% as a 23-year-old at Double-A and Triple-A are reasons to expect some bumps in the road during his rookie season. Colas has a chance to be a 30-homer hitter in the big leagues, but he is already physically maxed out at 24 years old, so he could eventually slide to designated hitter. His hit tool in the majors will be the swing skill. If he is a 45- or 50-grade hitter, that should allow him to play every day and drive in a lot of runs without killing fantasy ratios, but it's also possible that he hits for a low enough batting average that he isn't in much demand even if he's playing a lot.

The White Sox promoted Colas from Double-A Birmingham to Triple-A Charlotte on Sunday, baseball journalist Francys Romero reports.
ANALYSIS
With Birmingham's season coming to an end Sunday, Colas will head to Triple-A to pick up some more plate appearances to close out his first year in affiliated ball. Charlotte marks the third stop of the season for Colas, who slashed .309/.367/.516 with 47 extra-base hits between stints at Double-A and High-A Winston-Salem.
