RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

With the Rockies struggling to get offensive production at shortstop with Troy Tulowitzki out with a wrist injury, Rutledge received a callup from Double-A Tulsa in July. He exceeded any of the team's wildest expectations early on, batting .345 with seven home runs and five stolen bases through his first two months in the big leagues. Once pitchers started figuring out the book on him, Rutledge was exposed down the stretch, with his low walk rate resulting in a rather ordinary .306 on-base percentage by season's end. Assuming Tulowitzki enters this season healthy, Rutledge will move over to second base full time, giving him eligibility at both middle-infield positions in most leagues. While Rutledge's average may drain some of his value if his lack of plate discipline continues, he has a great chance at reaching double-digit home runs and steals batting near the top of the Rockies lineup.
