RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Magglio Ordonez.

2012

Coming off a broken ankle to end his 2010 campaign, Ordonez wasnt able to round back into form last season. His ankle problems lingered, limiting him to a platoon role for much of the year while sidelining him in the postseason. As a result, the 2011 season was easily the worst of Ordonezs career, as he finished with a .255/.303/.331 line all career lows. The 38-year-old outfielder was sapped of any power he had left remaining, mustering just five homers and 32 RBI in 329 at-bats. As of press time, Mags is currently a free agent. Given his age and health problems over the past two seasons, his only hope is to likely latch on as a designated hitter with an American League squad. While Ordonez was one of the more consistent hitters in the league during his prime, hes clearly nearing the end of his career and will only be worth a look in deeper formats if he manages to prove hes past his ankle problems and finds a job in 2012.

2011

Ordonez was well on his way to being one of the better bounce-back stories of 2010 before suffering a season-ending broken ankle in late July. Prior to sustaining his injury, Ordonez hit .303/.378/.474 with 12 home runs and 59 RBI in 323 at-bats. Mags' recovery from his broken ankle has gone smoothly and the 37-year-old outfielder is expected to be at full strength for the start of the season. Detroit declined to pick up Ordonez's $15-million option for the 2011 season but re-signed him to a one-year deal in December. While Ordonez isn't quite the power hitter we saw during his prime years, he still has plenty of pop in his bat and is a sure bet to post a .300 batting average while driving in runs from the middle of the Tigers lineup. Don't forget about him in the mid-to-late rounds.

2010

Ordonez�s 2009 campaign was a frustrating one for fantasy owners. After three straight 20/100 seasons, Ordonez finished 2009 with just nine home runs and 50 RBI. At 35, a drop in power was expected, but it was hard to envision such a drastic dip from one of the Tigers� more consistent players. Mags did manage to salvage his season by hitting .345 after the All-Star break, proving that while his power may be dwindling, he�s still an asset in batting average. He�ll once again slot into an everyday spot for the Tigers, splitting time between right field and DH, and given his second half surge, he should be worth his expected draft-day discount, just don�t bank on the power that he displayed earlier in his career coming back.

2009

Ordonez wasn't able to replicate his 2007 season but 2008 was no letdown for most of his fantasy owners. Ordonez saw a small decline in his power output and his batting average dropped to a level more in line with what we should expect from him moving forward. Ordonez is one of the Tigers' most consistent hitters and should be able to top 100 RBI again for a fourth straight year. In fact, we won't be surprised to see his final stat line look very similar to what he finished with last season.

2008

A batting title and runner up in the AL MVP voting - not a bad season for Magglio. He's put together two healthy seasons in a row so it seems safe to say his surgically-repaired knee has held up. The Tigers have a very good lineup so it wouldn't be improbable for Ordonez to have another big year this season, but 2007 will be hard to top. Just remember to temper your expectation - at 34, Ordonez will soon tart to decline like most players do in their mid 30's.

2007

Last season was Ordonez's best since 2003. He managed to stay healthy for the entire season and started to flash some of the power that once made him a top fantasy pick. It does appear that Ordonez has lost some pop due to the 2004 knee surgery, but he remains one of the better hitting fantasy outfielders if healthy because of his ability to hit for average. The Tigers should be able to rotate Ordonez and Gary Sheffield between DH and RF to keep both players stronger throughout this season. That gives hope Ordonez can increase his HR total.

2006

Ordonez suffered no ill effects from the knee surgery that ended his 2004 season prematurely but instead missed significant time in 2005 because of hernia surgery. When playing, Ordonez showed some signs of returning to his old form. His hit and contact rates were in line with previous seasons and his eye at the plate remained strong. The only real offensive concern was his lack of power. It's entirely possible, however, that Ordonez was never at full strength last season. With an offseason of rest he should get closer to being the player he was with the White Sox.

2005

Ordonez's season ended badly and bizarrely, as a collision with Willie Harris caused a knee injury and chain reaction that led to bone marrow edema. The White Sox didn't seem terribly anxious to bring him back before he got hurt, but the rare medical condition sealed the deal -- Ordonez will be in a different uniform on Opening Day. We suspect whoever signs him will be getting the 2005 version of Vlad Guerrero (persona non grata in the 2004 offseason due to his back, AL MVP thereafter) but with so little known about Ordonez's knee injury and possible recovery outcomes, he remains a risky pick-up -- though one with a huge upside.

2004

Look past the disappointing RBI total, and you'll see that Mags was the same as he ever was, posting his fourth straight .900+ OPS season. He'll be 30 in 2004, so he should still have a couple more big years left in the tank. If you can shave a couple bucks off his price due to his 'declining' power numbers, so much the better.

2003

The North Side's answer to Slammin' Sammy has quietly been just as consistent over the last four years, though his numbers aren't nearly as extra-terrestrial (Mags has averaged .310-33-123 since '99). He set career highs in BA, SLG, HR, RBI and runs last year, and there's little reason to think he'll slip in 2003. Worth every penny.
