RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

When the Royals first acquired Getz from the White Sox in 2010, they envisioned him as a decent stopgap at the keystone while they waited for Johnny Giavotella to develop. But similarly to 2011, Giavotella wasn't ready and while Getz was to be leaned on more, his inability to stay healthy or hit left-handed pitching forced the team into using him strictly as a platoon partner. Getz batted .275 over 210 plate appearances, but failed to produce anything offensively worth using in fantasy. He does not strike out very often, has a below-average walk rate, and while he makes a lot of contact at the plate, it is not clean contact as evidenced by his .312 on-base percentage. He will likely be used in a similar role by the Royals again this season.

2012

Last season brought the demise of Getz as a leadoff hitter and as the Royals' starting second baseman. As the team's leadoff hitter, he produced a .248 OBP, before being removed permanently in lieu of Alex Gordon, who took a shining to the spot (.383 OBP). As their second baseman, he lasted until early August, when Johnny Giavotella was called up. For the season, he posted a .255/.313/.287 batting line with 21 steals. It's doubtful the Royals or any team asks him to take on such responsibilities again in 2012. Fantasy owners in deeper leagues will want to use him for his speed, but use caution as his batting average will put a drain on his value.

2011

Getz is the odds-on favorite to start at second base when the Royals open the 2011 season. His 2010 campaign was cut short thanks to a concussion, but he was fully cleared to return to action in December. He's a favorite of manager Ned Yost and likely will be given plenty of at-bats early on in the year. It'll be up to him to build on his successful 2008 and 2009 seasons and leave last year behind him to keep the job.

2010

Getz proved in his rookie season what we thought he would become. A not-too-powerful, not-too-fast hitter that can get on base reliably (.324) and is smart on the basepaths (he succeeded on 25 of 34 tries). His power is extremely limited, with just 24 extra-base hits in 415 plate-appearances. He may have to battle Alberto Callaspo for at-bats after being traded to the Royals, but his ability to steal a base should land him somewhere near the top of the order when he gets into the lineup.

2009

Getz had a career season at Triple-A while being groomed as a utilityman. He may need to play multiple positions in the majors, as the acquisitions of Brent Lillibridge and Wilson Betemit have crowded the Sox infield. The power spike he showed last year is probably not real, so he's an OBP/SB guy without upside who won't play much.
