RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

There was no outlook written for Joey Butler.

2014

Butler, who spent September on the Rangers' 40-man roster, was designated for assignment at the end of the season and claimed by the Cardinals. The 27-year-old outfielder will have a very hard time scratching the big leagues behind what is an extremely deep Cardinals outfield, even with the loss of Carlos Beltran. Butler is a capable fielder and has been a .300 hitter in three seasons at Triple-A. He also has some modest pop and may find his way onto a fantasy roster or two, if he's forced into full-time action due to injuries, but that scenario appears to be something of a long shot as long as he's rostered by a club with World Series aspirations.
