RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Kensuke Tanaka.
Even by NPB standards, Tanaka is a small ball player -- good defense, stolen bases, plate discipline, contact skills and sacrifice bunts, but no power. At his peak in Japan, Tanaka hit for a high average and was among the league leaders in stolen bases, but he missed time in each of the last two seasons with injuries and his numbers suffered. Still, he became an international free agent and signed a minor league deal with San Francisco. At this stage in his career, his upside is that of a utility infielder.
