RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for John Vander Wal.
Vander Wal was talked out of retirement to sign with the Reds. He'll be the team's fourth outfielder and top left-handed pinch-hitter, and is capable of playing first base when Sean Casey can't go.
Vander Wal filed for free agency last October and will probably fill a fourth OF/pinch-hitter role somewhere. Vander Wal does a decent job of getting on base and has a little power as well, but at age 36, we don't see him landing a starting job.
