RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Thanks to improved health at third base with David Wright, Turner saw nearly 300 fewer plate appearances in 2012 while his walk rate (4.9%) dipped back closer to his more recent minor league results. Although his .392 slugging percentage was an improvement, 2011 is probably as good as it gets now that he is 28 years old and is not even guaranteed steady at-bats even if one of the Mets' regular infielders lands on the disabled list. You can probably do worse than Turner when looking at $1 options in the endgame of NL-only leagues, but others will gamble and do much better because of his limited ceiling.

2012

Turner started 2011 at Triple-A Buffalo, but was up by the third week of the year and saw action in a surprising 117 games. He replaced David Wright at third while Wright was out, earning National League Rookie of the Month honors in May, before seeing most of his action at second. Turner struggled for a large portion of the last four months of the season, but excelled with runners in scoring position. Daniel Murphy should open the year as the starting second baseman, however, pushing Turner back into a utility role.

2011

Turner opened 2010 as an Oriole, but was waived and claimed by the Mets in May. He turned out to be one of Triple-A Buffalo's best players with a .333 average, a .906 OPS, 11 home runs and 58 runs in 84 games. Turner will be in the mix for the second base job in spring training, but is likely to start the year back in the minors.

2010

Turner does most things well, but no single tool stands out. He pushed his way to a September callup and he could win a utility infielder role out of camp. If there is an injury in the middle infield he could be primed for some playing time, but he doesn't warrant much fantasy praise.
