RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Guyer just missed the chance to start the season with the Rays in 2012, but still received the call in early May. Unfortunately, a torn labrum ended his season only three games into a major league stay. He had a strong start at Triple-A Durham hitting .294/.365/.459 with three home runs and 13 RBI in 22 games. Over the years, Guyer has proven to have a solid bat at the minor league level in addition to above average speed. With possible playing time opportunities in the corner-outfield spots for the Rays, Guyer could have the chance to step in and earn extra at-bats this season in reserve.

2012

A former minor league player of the year with the Cubs organization, Guyer settled in nicely for the Rays at Triple-A Durham. In just 388 at-bats, he hit .312 and launched 14 home runs, solid numbers considering Durham is considered pitcher-friendly. He received limited playing time with the Rays late in the season, but responded with two home runs in 43 plate appearances. Guyer does possess a nice speed/power combo, but will likely be sent to Triple-A to get everyday at-bats with the Rays outfield already penciled in. He's not a big prospect at 26, but would be an interesting option if he somehow worked his way to regular at-bats.

2011

Guyer was named the Cubs' minor league player of the year after hitting .344/.398/.588 and stealing 30 bases in 33 attempts at Double-A Tennessee. Keep in mind Guyer's already 25, so he's hardly a top prospect, but his speed and decent power combo are intriguing. The Rays acquired him as part of the Matt Garza trade with the Cubs in January, so he'll vie for at-bats in a crowded group jockeying for position with Carl Crawford's departure to Boston.
