RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Shuck began the 2013 season as an outfielder off the bench, but began seeing regular playing time when Peter Bourjos fractured his wrist in late June. Curiously, the above-average plate discipline Shuck has offered during his career fell away in his first season with the Angels (5.6% walk rate), but his high contact rate (87.5%) allowed him to finish the season with a .293 batting average. While one would expect the batting eye to return next year for Shuck, the outfielder simply has no power, as he hit only two home runs in 478 plate appearances with the Angels in 2013, and has only seven in his 558 games played in the minor leagues. While it is possible that he could expand his stolen base output next season, Shuck was basically a one-tool player in 2013, and doesn't look to have a very good chance of supplanting Kole Calhoun in 2014. Instead, he will probably reprise his role as an extra outfielder.

2012

The Astros called up Shuck late last year and he added a little electricity to their lineup. He hit .297 in 108 games at Triple-A, but the best place for him to learn his trade now is probably the majors. Shuck plays hard in the field and exhibits good on-base skills, but with no power and not much speed, he may have already reached his ceiling as a fourth outfielder. He figures to be in the hunt for playing time as the Astros assess what they actually have in the high minors. If he gets playing time, he may be able to swipe a few bags, but nothing else is guaranteed - bid accordingly.
