RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Matt Williams.

2003

Turned 37 in the offseason, and he'll see part-time duty with Craig Counsell at third base, at best, in the last year of his five-year contract in 2003. If he plays enough to give you numbers of .260-15-60, you'll have done well. He's no more than a late-round pick unless you find out in the spring that Counsell gets hurt and the D-Backs decide that Chad Tracy is still a year away.
