RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Dave Sappelt.

2013

After a poor showing at Triple-A, the 26-year-old held his own in 69 major-league at-bats. Given his lack of development since a breakout at Double-A in 2010, he's a long shot to have a significant role in 2013, and that's assuming he makes the team at all, a hurdle that became more difficult this winter with the Cubs' addition of Nate Schierholtz.

2012

Sappelt was a late bloomer in the minors beginning midway through the 2010 season and earned his promotion to the majors halfway through last season. The Reds traded him to the Cubs as part of the Sean Marshall deal in December, but he's likely in position for a bench role in Chicago especially given how he didn't hit for power at the big league level, doesn't walk that much and can't really play center field.
