RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Desi Relaford.

2006

You know that segment during every Olympics telecast showing people collecting pins from various countries? Relaford's the baseball equivalent. Sure, he might be worth looking at for two weeks every four years, but it's something that ends up on a shelf collecting dust in the back of your closet the rest of the time.

2005

Unsuccessful, uncomfortable and finally unwanted, Relaford struggled through a 2004 season in which only a late surge brought him above .200. Injuries and ineffectiveness lost him the starting second-base job and forced him back into a super-sub role, one he hates. He runs well, can passably play seven positions and has a little pop in his bat. His starting days at second are probably over, but if he gets playing time in a utility role in Colorado he could have value in Coors Field.

2004

Relaford was stellar for the Royals during the first half of the season but suffered numerous injuries the rest of the way, forcing him to bat left-handed full time from July on. When healthy, Relaford was the leadoff hitter and played anywhere the Royals needed him. He will likely be the starter at second base in 2004.

2003

He could fill the vacancy left when the Royals allowed shortstop Neifi Perez to become a free agent last month or could serve as a utility player if prospect Angel Berroa becomes the starter at shortstop. With his speed and decent plate discipline, Relaford could be a useful middle infielder in deep AL leagues this season.
