RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for James Skelton.

2009

Skelton was Detroit's top catching prospect now that Dusty Ryan is in the majors, but the Tigers left Skelton exposed to the Rule 5 draft in winter, and he was taken by the Diamondbacks. Skelton is an intriguing contact hitter with excellent plate discipline and above average speed for a catcher, but his power is below average and that could prevent him from starting in the majors.
