Carter Kieboom Will Breakout

SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE

Kieboom doesn’t have an easy job replacing Anthony Rendon, but he has a great opportunity to immediately contribute for the defending champions. Kieboom is competing with Starlin Castro and Asdrubal Cabrera for a starting spot but should be in the everyday lineup before long. In AAA last season as a 21 year old, Kieboom hit over .300 and had a .409 OBP. Kieboom could hit .275 with 20 HRs this season.
