RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Matt Walbeck.

2003

The Tigers signed him to a minor-league deal, but there's an excellent chance he'll make the club as Brandon Inge's caddy, playing twice a week. Walbeck must be doing something right on defense or in the clubhouse, because his career average is just .237 and he has very little power.
