RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Solano got the nod as the Opening Day starter for the Marlins in 2013, but his journey did not exactly go smoothly. He got off to a nice start, batting .278/.333/.324 in 30 games, before hitting the disabled list with an oblique injury in early May. Once healed, Solano took some time to get himself back into an everyday role, but earned the job for the final two months of the season. Solano does a decent job putting the ball in play (84% contact rate) and has the inside track to the Marlins' second base job once again, but he'll be hard-pressed to duplicate the BABIP-fueled .295 average he posted over 285 at-bats in 2011, while Derek Dietrich could prove to be a more viable option to man the keystone.

2013

Solano performed well when given opportunities in 2012, posting a solid .295 average over 285 at-bats while taking over as the Marlins' regular second baseman down the stretch. Though he offers little in the power department, knocking just two home runs on the year, Solano provides defensive versatility and a touch of speed. It's likely that his average last season was buoyed by a fortunate .364 BABIP, but with the Marlins' lack of depth, Solano figures to see plenty of opportunities in 2013. Expectations should be tempered for a guy who has a career .314 OBP over 2,795 minor league at-bats.
