RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Jeromy Burnitz.

2007

The Pirates acquired Burnitz to hit home runs in 2006 and he finished second on the team with 16 homers. Everything else about the 36-year-old lefty was pretty much a wash out, but it wouldn't have taken Nostradamus to predict that. Seven million dollars later the Pirates bought out Burnitz and he remains unsigned. He hit three homers as a pinch-hitter and could find his way onto an American League roster. Just make sure he doesn't end up on yours.

2006

Burnitz put up substandard corner outfielder numbers at sea level last season, and he's not getting any younger. He's still got a little pop in his bat, so the short right-field porch at PNC Park may help his numbers. He's a major batting average liability, however.

2005

Burnitz finally put together a solid batting average in 2004 to go with his power production, but his career-high .283 came courtesy of hitting .322 at Coors. Now no longer on the Rockies, he should still hit around 30 homers, but shouldn't come close to his 2004 average.

2004

Despite hitting over 30 home runs again, Burnitz could not get his on base percentage over .300, which bodes poorly for future success. He swung for the fences on every pitch, missing far too often. He'll have a better home-road platoon split in 2004, having spent 2003 playing in two of the worst parks for hitters, now going to Coors Field. 21 of his 31 homers came on the road last year.

2003

Burnitz's second stint in the Big Apple looked just like his first, with the power-hitting outfielder struggling to make contact. Burnitz finished at .215, his worst average ever, and failed to hit at least 20 homers for the first time since he split his season between Cleveland and Milwaukee in 1996. Burnitz probably won't be as bad in 2003, but he won't get back to the monster numbers he put up in Milwaukee from 1997-2001, when he averaged 32 home runs and 102 RBI. Take him as a last resort.
