RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Russ Springer.

2010

At press time, Springer had filed for free agency and was contemplating retirement. Even if he signs with a team, he shouldn't be on your radar.

2009

In two years with the Cardinals, Springer has been nothing short of outstanding: In 116.1 innings, he has a 2.24 ERA, 1.01 WHIP, and 111:37 K:BB ratio. There's no reason not to think he can give the Cardinals another quality 40 innings in 2009, but he's already 40. We're still waiting for his arm to finally fall off.

2008

With an 8-1 record, 2.18 ERA, 0.909 WHIP, and 3.50 K:BB in 76 appearances, Springer was the kind of guy who showed up on a lot of fantasy league champions in 2007. Springer has set a career-high in appearances in each of his last three seasons, so it is possible that his arm will finally fall off after his 16-year career. He'll be back setting up Jason Isringhausen in 2008, but it's unlikely he'll come close to repeating last year's stellar numbers.

2007

Springer was another oft-used reliever out of Phil Garner's bullpen, making 72 appearances and posting a record of 1-1 with a 3.47 ERA. He was used mainly as a situational righty, as he logged just 59.2 innings in his 72 appearances. He should have a similar role in St. Louis.

2006

He'd thrown 50 2/3 major league innings in the 21st century before showing up in the Astros pen and becoming their No. 4 right-hander. He's too homer-prone for a larger role, so he'll likely fade back into obscurity.

2003
