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.

White Sox manager Pedro Grifol told reporters Wednesday that Colas will "play a lot" in the early part of the season, but he may not be in the lineup for Opening Day on Thursday against the Astros, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
Grifol said that it will either be Colas, Eloy Jimenez or Romy Gonzalez that gets the start against the Astros on Thursday. The rookie outfielder has been informed he'll be part of the Opening Day roster for the White Sox, and it's possible Chicago will try and ease him into the lineup with tough left-hander Framber Valdez on the mound for the Astros.
