I'm still a believer in Rizzo , but it may not be long before players like Abreu / Trumbo leapfrog him on the rankings. - Eric Stashin

His spring stats haven't been slap-you-in-the-face amazing, but he's managed 15 hits in 45 at bats to go with two home runs, one triple, and three doubles. Since Rizzo was an offseason favorite and has carried the torch into the spring, I would call that a good sign. - Brad Johnson

I don't think you can reasonably expect a batting average north of .255 here, because we're talking about a slow-footed runner who can't touch left-handed pitching. And it's not like the Cubs' lineup is loaded, so we can't really expect huge run and RBI totals. I'm not expecting much more than a 70-26-85-.250 line, assuming good health. - Brandon Funston

Detractors assert that he can't master LHPs. But he can hit their pitches out of the park; he sat among the leaders in HR against them by a LHB. He's shortening his swing and should gain more RBI opps with an improving club. He's no .300 bat, but he's not a .233 stick, as his K and chase temperance since 2011 have shown. With legit 30-homer promise, Rizzo is the next breakthrough first-sacker. - Tim Heaney
