RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Solano performed well when given opportunities in 2012, posting a solid .295 average over 285 at-bats while taking over as the Marlins' regular second baseman down the stretch. Though he offers little in the power department, knocking just two home runs on the year, Solano provides defensive versatility and a touch of speed. It's likely that his average last season was buoyed by a fortunate .364 BABIP, but with the Marlins' lack of depth, Solano figures to see plenty of opportunities in 2013. Expectations should be tempered for a guy who has a career .314 OBP over 2,795 minor league at-bats.
