RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

There was no outlook written for Charlie Culberson.

2015

Aside from a brief demotion to Triple-A in April, Culberson stuck with the Rockies in a utility role for the entirety of the 2014 season, logging at least 20 games of action at every infield position but first base. He didnít offer anything more than passable defense anywhere and was utterly atrocious at the plate, where he slashed .195/.253/.290 while striking out over five times for every walk he drew in 233 plate appearances. Other than providing a warm body for the Rockies when Troy Tulowitzki and Nolan Arendo missed significant chunks of action with injuries, the 25-year-old did little to make a case for sticking around with the parent club as long as he did. As a result, Culberson could find himself on the outside looking in for a backup infield job in spring training, especially after the late-September hitting surge of Rafael Ynoa, who already owned the better glove of the two players.

2014

Culberson produced strong numbers in a repeat season at the Triple-A level, batting .310 with 14 homers and 13 steals for Colorado Springs before earning a second-half promotion. An infielder by trade, Culberson saw the majority of his time with the Rockies in the outfield. He continued to hit well in the majors while chipping in the occasional homer and stolen base, but his porous walk rate (3.7%) deflated his OBP and has been a consistent problem for him throughout his career. That deficiency in his game may forever confine him to a jack-of-all-trades role at the major league level, but Culberson should offer enough speed and defensive malleability to thrive in that capacity. His ability to play the outfield may give him the upper hand to win an Opening Day roster spot over the team's other utility types.

2013

Culberson was acquired in a midseason trade from the Giants for Marco Scutaro and made a good impression upon arrival at Triple-A Colorado Springs, batting .336 while displaying moderate power and speed. For all his strengths, Culberson boasts a career minor league OBP of .311 and a strikeout rate approaching 20 percent, indications that he is not quite ready for the majors. Furthermore, while Culberson does have experience at three infield positions, he is viewed as below adequate defensively at any position besides second base, which could damage his chances of latching on in a utility role over the sure-handed D.J. LeMahieu.

2011

Culberson hit .292 with 16 homers over 503 at-bats in High-A San Jose last season, and while his 33:99 BB:K ratio wasn't impressive, and the California League is conducive for hitting, it was still a solid line for a 21-year-old. Since he also added 25 stolen bases, he's on the radar in keeper fantasy leagues, but he's still quite a bit away from contributing at the big league level.
