RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Corporan got into about half as many games as he did in 2011, but made the most of his time by hitting .269 and slugging .449. He has spent the bulk of his 10-year career in the minors, but is decent defensively with the ability to call an adequate game and throw out his share of runners. Corporan would be a passable backup catcher, but his playing time in 2013 is far from guaranteed at this point.

2010

Signed minor league contract with Arizona in December 2009.
