Rotowire Fantasy Outlook
Beware falling in love with a prospect based on their production in the Pioneer League. Pages, a 19-year-old slugging right fielder, hit .236 in the Dominican Summer League and .192 in the AZL in 2018, but broke out in a big way with a 1.049 OPS and 165 wRC+ playing in the ridiculously hitter-friendly conditions of the Pioneer League. While his overall production soared, his K% spiked from 16.5% to 28.3% while his BB% dipped from 13.7% to 9.3%. He has always logged unsustainably high flyball rates (over 53% at every stop), but that type of swing only really works in an environment like the Pioneer League. He has a plus arm, plus power and is an average runner, so he is not uninteresting, but this offseason may very well end up being the peak of his dynasty-league value.
