RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Larry Walker.

2006

Walker announced his retirement shortly after the Cardinals were eliminated from the playoffs. The outfielder ended his career with a .313 batting average, 383 HR, and 1,311 RBI.

2005

Walker created a frenzy among major-league contenders when he said he would accept a trade. Colorado had discussions with numerous teams before settling on a deal with Texas. Walker nixed that deal and added he wouldn't go to Florida either. Good choice. He ended up landing in St. Louis in early August and was able to finally play in a World Series. His numbers dipped a bit after the move to St. Louis, but not as much as some might have anticipated from a 38-year-old outfielder with a history of health problems. He homered 11 times and stole four bases while playing all but 10 regular-season games for St. Louis. He then hit six home runs and batted .293 in the post season. He is signed through the 2005 season and, if healthy, will be a menacing presence in an already talented Cardinal lineup.

2004

Walker put up only his second sub-.300 season in the last ten years and overnight he became too old, too slow, and too injury-prone. The fact is, all of these traits accurately describe Walker, but so does this - he can rake when healthy. The bottom line is that as long as Walker is healthy, he's a great hitter, magnified by the fact that he plays half his games in a launching pad. The Rockies are nearly ready to unveil a string of new outfielders, but if Walker can stay off the trainer's table, he'll block any and all of the new breed from getting any playing time. Alas, with Walker undergoing surgery in October on his shoulder and knee, the likelihood of him being healthy all season is pretty slim.

2003

Despite Colorado's best efforts to trade him, it looks like Walker will be sticking around. Good news for Walker, who will likely put together another fine season, if he can stay healthy, which is always a risk.
