RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Joe Benson.

2013

Benson seemed on the cusp of a major league job in spring training, but he slumped and was sent to the minors where he struggled with injuries. Benson had hamate bone surgery in May and then had a setback in late June. He then had season-ending surgery in July to remove loose bodies from his left knee. However, he did not hit even when healthy last season and was demoted all the way to Double-A. When healthy, his power-speed combination makes him an enticing option for fantasy baseball, but it is not clear if he has the on-base skills to win a starting job. He will likely move up quickly to Triple-A again in 2013 and there is still some hope he can rebound and make an impact in the majors.

2012

Benson got an extended look with so many Twins players shut down in September due to injury, but he looked a little overmatched with a 3:21 BB:K ratio and .622 OPS in 21 games. His power-speed combination makes him an enticing option for fantasy baseball, but it's not clear if he has the on-base skills to win a starting job. He'll likely begin the season at Triple-A, but could win a reserve outfield job this spring or be called up early in the season.

2011

Benson was named Minnesota's Minor League Player of the Year last season. He was an odd recipient of the organization's award since he hit just .259 between High-A Fort Myers and Double-A New Britain. However, he did hit .294/.375/.588 at High-A and his Double-A stats were in a tough hitting environment. He'll begin 2011 at Triple-A and could get called up as a reserve. He improved his power significantly in 2010 and has 20-20 potential, but it's not clear if he'll have the on-base skills to be an impact player in the majors.
