RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Steve Tolleson.

2013

Tolleson shuttled back and forth between Baltimore and Triple-A and was never anything but a backup in the organization. He refused a minor league assignment and joined the White Sox after the season. Tolleson has rifled off some pedestrian numbers even by minor league standards and he hit groundballs in 52.8 percent of his at-bats in 2012, generating just a 11.3 percent rate for line drives. The White Sox should sign some other experienced players to compete with Tolleson for a utlity infield spot in spring training.

2011

Tolleson had a nice year at Triple-A Sacramento, hitting .332/.412/.503 and flashing more power than in the past. That's hardly unexpected for a 26-year-old in his sixth professional season, and we'd need to see a repeat performance before we can begin to project him as a possible utility infielder with some upside.

2010

Tolleson had a breakout season at Double-A in 2008, but didn't show the same power at Double-A and Triple-A in 2009. He has a good eye at the plate, but he'll need to return to his 2008 form to get consideration for more than a temporary utility role in the majors.

2009

Tolleson was a lightly-regarded 2005 fifth-round pick but had a breakout season at Double-A and an impressive Arizona Fall League showing (hitting .383/.449/.543 with seven stolen bases). He's always had a good eye at the plate, so his breakout may be for real. He could be a sleeper in 2009 given Minnesota's lack of depth on the left side of the infield.
