RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Fred McGriff.

2004

The Dodgers were hoping to get one more productive season out of the 39-year old McGriff, but it was not to be. Injuries derailed his season and he came up nine home runs short of 500. Whoever signs McGriff, if anyone, should not let him hit against lefties any longer (.194 vs. L in 2003 after hitting only .213 vs. L in 2002). A platoon job is probably his best chance at reaching 500 home runs.

2003

McGriff has put up some pretty solid numbers the last two seasons, but with Hee Seop Choi in the pipeline, it was time for the Cubs to let him go. He'll hit his 500th home run somewhere, and should still be good for 20 home runs. The switch to Chavez Ravine might not be as bad as it looks - Wrigley Field has played more as a pitcher's park in recent years.
