RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Lough appeared to be advancing nicely through the Royals system, displaying improved plate discipline, modest power and decent speed, but took a step back in 2012 when his walk rate dropped and he posted a .317 OBP, the lowest of his professional career. He maintained most of his power and stole a career-high 26 bases, but nothing in his totals said that he was ready for a promotion. He saw very limited action in a late-season callup, appearing in 20 games primarily as a defensive replacement. When he did get a chance to hit, failed to turn any heads with his .237 average and equally weak .292 on-base percentage. Lough is still a project, but he is turning 27 years old just prior to spring training and time is running out for him to make any sort of an impact.

2012

Lough repeated Triple-A in 2011 and the results were an improvement from his tour of duty there in 2010. He hit .318/.367/.482 and in the process cut down on his strikeout rate, while improving upon his power. He has modest speed as he has stolen 14 bases in each of the last two seasons. Entering his age-26 season, a promotion to the big leagues would serve him well as he has little left to prove in the minors. Likely destined to be a fourth outfielder, Lough is not a prospect that owners should be tracking in 2012.

2010

Lough hit a combined .325/.370/.496 between Low- and High-A last season and the Royals like his overall gap hitting and his occasional power. Last season, Lough added 57 points to his batting average over his 2008 numbers. That's an excellent sign. He's a top-of-the-order hitter with the potential to get on base and swipe additional bags. Lough has quick hands through the ball and the potential to slap pitches to all fields if he gains patience and more plate discipline. Defensively, he has good range, takes good routes and has the strong-arm qualities that make him a viable candidate for center field. Lough could see some action at the big league level as a September callup this season, depending on how his minor league season goes.
