RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Mark Wagner.
Wagner's known primarily for his defense and game-calling, but had trouble at the plate with his initial brush at Triple-A. The same thing happened when he advanced to Double-A in 2008, but one year later he was hitting .301 and heading to Pawtucket by mid-season. He could serve as a good backup catcher in the major leagues, and quite possibly in a platoon situation, but we'll need to see how he responds with the bat 2010.
Wagner had a nice year for High-A Lancaster, hitting .318/.406/.533/ in 368 at-bats for the JetHawks. He's a solid defensive catcher and a pretty competent hitter. He's the most significant catching prospect in the organization, and Jason Varitek is entering the final year of his contract. Wagner's not ready for the prime time, but the pathway to the majors is pretty clear.
