RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Rua earned the starting left-field spot for Texas to begin the year but suffered an ankle injury in the first week and was held out of action until mid-June as a result. Upon his return, Rua was afforded a brief stretch of semi-regular playing time until the acquisition of Mike Napoli in early August resulted in a trip to the minors. Rua's name was included among the Rangers' September callups, but he logged all of three at-bats over the season's final month. The results in 86 plate appearances were unsightly and he didn't fare much better at Triple-A Round Rock. It's possible that Rua will get a chance to earn the left field job once again in spring training, but the plate skills have not translated to the major league level to this point (2.6% BB%, 25.6% K%).

2015

Rua has some power but does not profile as an everyday player, nor does he have a visible avenue to significant playing time with the Rangers this season. Injuries to the big league club last season allowed him to appear in 28 games in the majors, primarily in left field and at first base. However, Prince Fielder and Mitch Moreland have first base taken care of heading into 2015, and it is unlikely that the Rangers would go into spring training looking at Rua as an everyday option in left. There also won’t be an opening for him at second base or third base, two positions he was featured at prominently in the minor leagues. He could make the team as a utility option or on the short side of a left-field platoon, as his splits are better against southpaws, but Rua is unlikely to be a legitimate fantasy option in standard formats.
