RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Adalberto Ibarra.
Ibarra brings an advanced bat to the organization after coming over from Cuba in 2010. His time in the minor-league levels was delayed and he didn't start playing with High-A Salem until August. Then it was offseason shoulder surgery, so that's the big question we see heading into 2011. He's relatively new to catching and has a lot of work to do defensively, beyond the question of the shoulder responding to surgery. He does have good baseball instincts and athleticism with the club feeling he can grow into an average catcher, at least, with a good bat. Look for a return to High-A Salem, where he'll likely stay for the full season allowing Ibarra to build his defensive skills at a measured pace.
