RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

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.
