RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Recker spent nearly all season in the majors as the Mets' backup catcher, playing in 50 games while collecting 151 plate appearances. During those opportunities, he showed a modicum of power (six homers), but struggled with poor plate discipline (13:49 BB:K). Depending on if the Mets sign a veteran backstop to mentor Travis d'Arnaud, Recker will either start the year in the majors in a similar role or play most of the year at Triple-A Las Vegas. Now 30 years old, there is little reason to think that a chance for Recker to see more steady playing time would unlock any previously unseen potential.

2012

Recker found himself at Triple-A Sacramento for the third straight year in 2011, so the impressive .287/.388/.501 slash line needs to be discounted given his experience and age (he'll be 28 years old when the season starts). He could battle for the backup catcher job in the spring if the A's want Derek Norris to spend time at Triple-A, but there's no long-term value here since Norris would become the primary backstop in Oakland if Kurt Suzuki were to be traded.
