RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Kelly Stinnett.
Stinnett got regular playing time down the stretch for Arizona last year. This year, look for him to get one or two starts per week in relief of Jorge Posada as Randy Johnson's regular backstop.
Signed to back up Benito Santiago, Stinnett saw a chance to be the starter with Kansas City when Santiago broke his hand in mid-June. Three days later, Stinnett was on the disabled list with nerve irritation in his right elbow. He had a decent offensive season in just 20 games but will have to win a job over Koyie Hill or Chris Snyder in Arizona after coming off surgery to correct that nerve irritation.
The Royals completely overhauled their catching position this offseason, signing Benito Santiago and Stinnett. Stinnett will play in approximately 50 games as Santiago's backup.
In a weak moment, GM Jim Bowden gave Stinnett a two-year contract extension in 2001, leaving him signed through the 2003 season. Bowden was never able to trade Stinnett, forcing the Reds to option Corky Miller back to Triple-A for most of the season, when it was apparent that Miller was ready for the major leagues. In the right situation, Stinnett could be a decent endgame catcher in deep leagues, but that's the extent of his upside.
