RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Gary Bennett.

2009

Bennett overcame the stigma surrounding his inclusion in the Mitchell Report to land a job as Russell Martin's primary backup last spring, but Martin's durability and Bennett's subsequent foot injury limited him to just 21 at-bats all year. Turning 37 in April, Bennett could be headed for retirement.

2008

Bennett's .252 batting average and .335 slugging percentage were his highest marks since 2002, but he'll be a backup again in 2008, this time to Russell Martin. He's played with seven teams since 2001, so he knows the drill. He turns 36 in April and with no power, speed or batting average to offer, he should not be on anyone's fantasy radar.

2007

Bennett settled in nicely as the backup catcher for St. Louis in 2006. Although he only played 60 games behind starter Yadier Molina, he had some key hits during the pennant race while Molina was hurt. In general, however, Bennett brings almost no offensive skills to the table. Other than a .265 season with the Rockies in 2002, he hasn't hit over .250 this century. His four homers in 2006 tied a career high, and he's unlikely to reach that plateau again. Expect about 150 empty at-bats in 2007.

2006

Bennett's defensive reputation keeps getting him modest deals -- he'll back up Yadier Molina in St. Louis in 2006. Consider him a poor man's Brad Ausmus, and then wince at the concept.

2005

Bennett split time behind the plate with Chad Moeller in 2004. He was signed by Washington in the offseason to back up Brian Schneider.

2004

The Padres outrighted the catcher after the 2003 season and he elected free agency instead. The club gave him his first true starter's role and while he played solid defensively, they couldn't live with a .238 batting average, particularly because it came attached with a .306 slugging percentage. He has posted a career .650 OPS in almost 1,000 at-bats, and that includes a stint in Colorado. Now with the Brewers, he offers absolutely nothing other than an ability to receive.

2003

Bennett's value takes a hit by moving into Qualcomm Stadium. Then again, Coors Field didn't exactly save his bat in 2002, so it's probably no great loss.
