RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

As a 31-year-old rookie in 2013, Lucas did work against left-handed pitching, posting a .883 OPS versus southpaws over 106 at-bats. He struggled to sustain production against right-handed pitching, however, slashing at a poor .224/.261/.544 clip with just one home run in 245 at-bats. Lucas caught fire down the stretch -- batting .321 in his final 22 games while seeing time all over the infield -- leaving a positive impression on the front office as the season came to a close. The lack of experience and depth in the Marlins' infield is a boon to Lucas' chances of making the Opening Day roster, but he's best suited for a platoon/reserve role in which his exposure against right-handed pitching can be limited.

2011

He'll be 29 next season, but did post a .878 OPS at Triple-A Omaha with the Royals last season. He'll likely just add depth at Triple-A, but there's a chance he could be a late bloomer. He'll compete for a utility role this spring.
