RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Russ Johnson.

2003

Johnson's average fell from .294 in 2001 to .216 in 2002 in a lost season where he missed almost three months due to treatment for clinical depression. And, you can joke about it, but it appears to be true: all of the constant losing with the Devil Rays got to him, in a very serious way. He got back for a few games in September, and he is on the second and final year of a $1.3-million contract in 2003. Perhaps a change of organizations will help.
