RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

There was no outlook written for Irving Falu.

2014

Falu spent his fifth full season at the Triple-A level and posted one of his more disappointing statistical seasons as he hit just .256 with two home runs and 31 RBI over 568 plate appearances. He did manage to steal 20 bases for a third year in row, but his upside doesn't seem to get much better than that. His plate discipline, his defense and his versatility in the infield are what keep him around, but without a legitimate job opportunity, he seems destined to stay on the shuttle between Triple-A and the majors with nothing more than the potential for part-time play. Unsuccessful in his bid to make the Royals, Falu signed a minor league deal with the Brewers, which also comes with an invite to spring training. He'll look to make the team as a utility player, but he's more than likely to spend most of his time in the minors again.

2013

Falu enjoyed a solid season as a utility infielder for Triple-A Omaha in 2012, batting .329 with seven home runs, 27 stolen bases and a stout .375 on-base percentage over 365 at-bats. He received a few brief callups throughout the year and managed to produce a .341/.371/.435 line despite never seeing consistent playing time. He possesses strong plate discipline, a little bit of power and modest speed, but at 29 years old, we are probably seeing Falu's ceiling here. He will likely remain a fallback option for the Royals, but with younger infield prospects in the organization, that is probably as far as he will get.
