RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

McKenry carved something of a major league role for himself in 2012. After spending parts of six seasons in the minors, McKenry hit .233/.320/.442 with 12 homers in 240 at-bats. He ranked 16th among all catchers with at least 200 at-bats with a .762 OPS, just behind Ryan Doumit (.781) and Matt Wieters (.764). From June 24 to August 13, the backstop batted .372/.429/.733 with eight homers and 26 RBI. He was an easier out the rest of the way, however. McKenry had just 13 knocks in his final 88 at-bats for a .148 batting average, giving Pittsburgh little reason to believe he's capable of handling full-time duty. With the addition of Russell Martin, McKenry remains firmly in a backup role in 2013.

2012

McKenry figures to serve as a backup for Pittsburgh in 2012. He came out of nowhere in 2011 and hit .289/.329/.421 in July. Unfortunately, the long-time minor leaguer couldn't sustain those numbers and batted .159/.260/.254 the last two months of the year. McKenry represented the feel-good portion of the Pirates' surprising midseason dalliance with first place, but in the end he returned to reality, just like the Bucs. A 14:49 BB:K ratio portends a tough go in 2012. It would be surprising to see him even stick on the roster all season long.

2010

McKenry is a short and stocky prototypical catcher with excellent defensive skills. He has plus arm strength and accuracy with a quick release and good footwork. Offensively, McKenry flashes a power bat and he has the ability to drive in runs. His hitting mechanics are not great, as he has a tendency to reach for pitches and he's a bit impatient at the plate. With Chris Iannetta set to take over the full-time catching duties, it may leave room for a rookie, defensive type backup with some pop. However, he probably needs more seasoning and will likely land at Triple-A. Look for him to compete for the No. 2 job in 2011.

2009

Loosely speaking, McKenry is a backup Chris Iannetta with a better glove. He threw out nearly half of basestealers at Modesto last year, which supports the good reputation for defense he carries. Long term, he looks like Dave Ross or Ramon Castro in the majors, a backup with power and defense, but a low batting average.
