RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Brent Mayne.
Mayne's not much of a hitter and his defense is average. He shouldn't be back with the Dodgers in 2005 and will either be looking for a backup job or a minor league deal this offseason.
If 2003 did anything for Brent Mayne, it finally solidified his status as a good backup catcher. The problem for the Royals is he wasn't a backup. He tied a career-high with six home runs while hitting .245. The Royals liked his work with the young pitching staff but did not want him as the starter again. He'll now split time in Arizona with Robby Hammock.
Mayne hit .301 for San Francisco in 1999 and hit over .300 twice for Colorado in 2000 and 2001. For Kansas City, he's hit .238 with six home runs over parts of two seasons. He'll be the starter in 2003 because they like his defense and his ability to work with the numerous young arms. His bat, however, has not been impressive.
