RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Tony Batista.

2008

Batista did his best Lenny Harris impression in '07, collecting some pinch hits for the Nationals but supplying almost none of the power that was once his only real asset at the plate. He'll try to catch on elsewhere in a similar bench role in 2008.

2006

Batista hit .263/.294/.463 (27 homers in 135 games) in the first year of a two-year contract in Japan last year, but after a bad week in the playoffs, he was released and got a buyout for the remaining year. If Batista wants to play baseball in 2006, he'll have to catch on with an MLB club, probably on a spring NRI. Had a 115-23 strikeout-to-walk ratio last year; guess he never figured out how to take a walk in Japanese, either.Batista played in Japan last season and hit .263 in 559 at-bats with 27 homers and 90 RBIs for the Fukuoka Softbank Hawks in the Pacific League. Before he left for Japan, Batista was a 30-HR threat in the majors, but with poor plate discipline. He could win a starting job at DH or 3B after signing a contract with the Twins. If he gets playing time, he'll be a good source of power but will be an anchor on your team's batting average.

2005

.

2004

For the second consecutive season, Batista played 161 games and tired down the stretch. He hit .219 with 10 homers and 36 RBI after the All-Star break. He'll be a bargain free agent acquisition for some team.

2003

Batista led the Orioles with 31 homers and 87 RBI in 2002, but saw his second half production drop (.217 after All-Star break) under the stress of playing 161 games and lack of other consistent power sources in the lineup. If the O's get a big bat in free agency, and a legitimate backup to rest him occasionally at third base, Batista should be a solid contributor all season batting cleanup.
