RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Joe Randa.

2006

Randa had a good comeback year in 2005, setting career highs in several major categories. He'll start at third base for the Pirates after signing a free agent contract. He could be a good bargain for fantasy owners who don't expect too much power or speed.

2005

Typically considered one of the more consistent hitters in the game, Randa is entering the twilight phase of his career. His signing with the Reds adds to the logjam for playing time for the team, with both Austin Kearns and Ryan Freel blocked from an everyday job. Moving to the Great American Ballpark might mask Randa's decline in power a little.

2004

The Royals tried to trade Randa early in 2003, trying to get out from under his multi-million dollar salary. The deals fell through and Randa had a career year. His defense was among the best in the league and his offense was more than adequate. The Royals signed him to a one-year deal mostly because they have no secondary option. A repeat of 2003 isn't likely, but he'll still be valuable in AL-only leagues, where third base is a relatively scarce position.

2003

He never hits 20 home runs, so no one ever mentions him among the top third basemen. He does, however, hover around .300 every season. He often hits 30-plus doubles and is a steadying influence on the left side of the infield. He's also 33-years old and worth something to a number of teams. He likely won't be a Royal in 2003 or will surely be traded before the deadline. The trouble is there is seemingly no answer at third in the Royals' minor-league system.
