RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Jamey Carroll.

2013

Carroll was signed before last offseason with the idea he would take over as the Twins' starting shortstop and add stability to Minnesota's shaky infield defense. His limitations on offense quickly moved him back to his usual utility role and he almost equally split time between shortstop, third base and second base. While his batting average fell to .268, he still drew walks at a good clip (9.7 percent) and had one of the lower BABIP rates of his career (.306). He has some bounce-back potential at the plate, but he offers almost no power and does not run enough to boost his fantasy value. He is an asset in the field as advanced fielding metrics showed he was above replacement level at all three positions. He will likely have a utility role again in 2013, but he could work his way into steady playing time if the Minnesota infield remains in flux.

2012

It was a successful two seasons in Los Angeles for Carroll, where due to injuries to other players, the career utilityman was able to make his way into the lineup more than expected with 803 total at-bats in those two seasons. With OBPs of .379 and .359, he had some value, but more in a "real baseball world" sense as opposed to fantasy. Carroll failed to homer once in a Dodger uniform and though he did reach double-digit stolen bases each year (10 and 12), his fantasy value remains limited. Carroll will reportedly be the Twins' starting shortstop after signing a two-year deal with the club this winter, so if you need roster filler in deeper leagues, he's your guy.

2011

Carroll probably played more than the team expected after they inked him to a two-year deal last winter. The utility man batted a solid .291/.379/.339 while playing shortstop primarily in place of the injured Rafael Furcal. Carroll offers no power (12 career homers in over 2,500 at-bats and none in 2010), so his fantasy value is limited to being an NL-only placeholder.

2010

Carroll doesn't offer much for power or speed, but he is versatile with his glove and provides a veteran option at second base after signing with Los Angeles to give the Dodgers some help as they turn that position over to Blake DeWitt in 2010.

2009

Carroll received more playing time than expected thanks to the early-season struggles of Asdrubal Cabrera and an injury to Josh Barfield and did enough to convince the Indians to pick up his contract option for 2009. The Indians are looking for third base help this winter which would land Carroll in a utility role again and there simply isn't enough upside here for anything but a handcuff situation in the deepest of leagues.

2008

Carroll's 2007 never got off the ground with Kaz Matsui owning the second base job. Carroll batted .225 in 227 at-bats and spent most of the season on the bench. He is a strong, versatile defender who can play second, third and shortstop. He was traded to the Indians because of the $2.3 million he was owed. At best he will be in a platoon situation as he bats much better (career .292 hitter) against left-handed pitching.

2007

Carroll took advantage of the Rockies' problems at second and received a career-high 463 at-bats. He has a solid batting eye, but little in the way of power. After hitting just .220/.308/.242 in August, he lost significant playing time to Kaz Matsui. With Matsui re-signed for 2007, Carroll will return to his utility role.

2006

Carroll has his uses as a 25th man, but an ISO of .033 in over 300 at bats is atrocious by whatever standard you care to use. He should be able to win a utility job with the Rockies this spring but even the thin air in Colorado won't give him much value if he manages to earn close to the same number of at-bats as last season.

2005

Carroll's a useful enough 25th man type, capable of playing a few positions and hit for an OK (if punchless) batting average. It's filling up the 24 spots ahead of him that's been the franchise's problem.

2004

Carroll ended up as the default option at third base, which is as big an indictment of Montreal's depth as anything. His .326 SLG was appalling; so appalling, in fact, that the Expos brought in Todd Zeile to replace him. At best, Carroll is a future utility guy.

2003

Somebody had to play third base after Fernando Tatis' annual breakdown, and that somebody ended up being the 28-year-old Carroll. He slugged .507 in his first taste of the majors, but only .392 before that in Triple-A, so don't expect anything close to a repeat.
