RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Orlando Merced.

2004

A pinch-hitter/backup-outfielder, no matter where he ends up.

2003

Merced's upside is as a fourth or even fifth outfielder in fantasy leagues that are single-league only. He offers little in the way of power or speed, and doesn't play enough to have a potentially good batting average make a tangible difference.
