RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Luis Durango.

2011

Durango has one skill, speed. At Triple-A Portland he got on base enough (.378 OBP) to showcase this skill (34 steals), but when given a taste of playing time at the major league level, this wasn't the case (.308 OBP). His walk rate has been in a steady decline for a couple seasons now, which does not bode well for his future fantasy value. Should he find himself in a starting role with the Padres, he'd be a great source of cheap speed in 2011, but their outfield is crowded and he's probably best suited as a reserve role where he'll start occasionally and work primarily as a pinch-runner.

2010

The Panamanian Jason Tyner, Durango runs and draws walks and at 145 pounds has less power than Dmitry Medvedev. Like Tyner and other players of this ilk, Durango will struggle to have a high enough OBP to be a regular in the majors; pitchers can simply knock the bat out of his hands in the majors. He'll have roster value and perhaps even NL-only value as a high-frequency pinch-runner, but will never play regularly in the majors.
