RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Casper Wells.

2013

Wells struggled to get playing time last season (12 starts in the first 46 games) and endured two stints at Triple-A Tacoma. He produced for a while when he did see regular action - .312 AVG, .893 OPS, five HR in 26 games (24 starts) after returning from his first demotion - but was quickly benched again when his bat inevitably cooled. Wells seemed like an afterthought, even though the Mariners filled perpetual outfield holes with an uninspiring lot of Quad-A players and Chone Figgins, none of whom could match Wells' glove. He faces a similar situation this season, at best the fourth outfielder after the team traded for Mike Morse. Adding another wrinkle, he's out of minor-league options. It'd be nice to see what Wells could do with regular playing time, especially in a reconfigured Safeco Field (home/road OPS+: 74/114). Wells would do himself a favor if he figured out right-handed pitchers and cut his strikeout rate.

2012

Wells came to Seattle last season in a deadline trade with Detroit and got off to a hot start with the Mariners. He was part of a four-man left-field/center-field rotation but getting hit in the face with a pitch and later suffering a sinus infection that caused an equilibrium issue knocked him off stride. He enters 2012 vying for the left-field job, and his stellar fielding ability and strong arm should give him an advantage over the competition.

2011

Wells was a late-season surprise for the Tigers, hitting .323 with four homers and 17 RBI in 93 at-bats. His power is legit, but given his career minor league batting average of .250, we don't expect Wells to hit anywhere near .323 when he gets a longer look. With the return of Magglio Ordonez in December, Wells' chances of having a platoon role have fallen considerably. AL-only leagues will want to keep an eye on Wells' role during spring training, but the odds are he gets shipped to Triple-A Toledo or starts the season as a depth outfielder for Detroit.

2010

Wells followed up a decent but injury-prone season at Double-A Erie with an impressive 21-game stint at the Arizona Fall League where he hit .351/.433/.662 with four homers and 25 RBI. Like many other young hitters, Wells needs to develop better plate judgment, but there’s no doubting his potential as a power/speed threat in the majors. He’ll likely need to log some time at Triple-A Toledo before getting a true look with the Tigers, but the 25-year-old outfielder could change that type of thinking with a decent showing in spring training.

2009

Wells, drafted in the 14th round out of Towson State University in Maryland in 2005, took a major step forward this past season. He hit .289 with 18 doubles, 17 home runs, 53 RBI and a .965 OPS in 75 games for Double-A Erie after being promoted from Low-A West Michigan. He continued his hot hitting in the Arizona Fall League. Wells' production got him added to Detroit's 40-man roster this winter. He looks to have plenty of pop in his bat but it remains to be seen if he can maintain his batting average over a full season in the high minors. We could see him in Detroit later this year if he is able to carry his production forward at Triple-A.
