RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Kent Mercker.

2007

Mercker is going to attempt to return from reconstructive elbow surgery, but the odds are against him pitching in any sort of meaningful role until late in the season.

2006

Mercker is a fungible left-handed set-up man at this point in his career. In comparison to the funny money handed out to relievers of all stripes this offseason, the two-year, $2.6 million deal Mercker signed before the 2005 season looks like a bargain. Of course, that still doesn't matter to your fantasy squad, unless you use holds as a category.

2005

Mercker will return as a left-handed middle reliever for the Reds. He's still reasonably effective, but could stand to cut down on walks to right-handed batters.

2004

Mercker altered his delivery two years ago and has been an effective reliever ever since. While he likely won't land a prominent role in the Cubs bullpen, he could be effective as a lefty specialist.

2003

Mercker's new sidearm delivery made him an effective lefty specialist until a horrific hand injury in June altered his season.
