RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Denny Hocking.
Hocking will turn 36 in early April and three seasons removed from his days as Minnesota's jack of all trades. He lost out to Joe McEwing for the major league utility job and spent all but the final two months in Triple-A Omaha. His bat hasn't been much to brag about since 2000 and his glove is versatile but only adequate.
Hocking will compete with Chris Clapinski and Luis Ugueto for a utility infield role with KC this spring.
Hocking's versatility to play almost any position well in the field and switch hit has kept him in the majors, but his weak bat may finally end his regular job in the big leagues. His numbers at the plate have declined four years in a row, so he's a longshot to increase his playing time.
Hocking will return as the Twins utility infielder in 2003, but his at bats will continue to drop for the fifth consecutive season. The general upgrade in talent on the Minnesota roster means he's gone from a spot starter to true reserve.
