RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Rutledge earned the Opening Day second base job on the strength of his splendid major league debut a season before, but was a bust right from the get-go, earning a demotion to Triple-A in May after struggling offensively and in the field. Though he enjoyed good numbers at Triple-A and eventually found his way back to the Rockies on a couple more occasions, Rutledge was never able to recapture the success he enjoyed in 2012, finishing the season with a dismal .235/.294/.337 line over 314 plate appearances. Although Rutledge’s numbers were down in almost every category, he did raise his walk rate considerably during his trials in the majors and stole 12 bases, putting him at a perfect 19-for-19 on steal attempts for his career. D.J. LeMahieu probably has the inside track for the starting second base job this spring, but Rutledge offers significantly more upside of the two players based on the power potential he brings to the position. It’s certainly within Rutledge’s capacity to reclaim the job if he can meld his newfound plate discipline with the hitting skills he’s previously shown.

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.
