RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Brandon Larson.
The Brandon Larson Era in Cincinnati is over, after his latest failure to keep the third base job due to injures and an inability to hit in the majors. He's hit in the minors, so he could get another chance with Tampa Bay this spring. He could be a nice sleeper if he can stay healthy.
After being given the third base job to start the season, Larson got off to a horrible start (4-for-48) and was optioned to Triple-A Louisville by mid-April. One might have argued that manager Bob Boone should have been more patient with Larson (as well as with a number of other young players). Larson subsequently went on to destroy Triple-A pitching for the second consecutive year. He was poised to get a real chance with the Reds over the last two months, only to be sidelined with a shoulder injury that eventually required surgery. Larson is out of options, so the Reds will have a tough decision regarding him coming out of spring training.
Larson, the Reds' first-round draft pick in 1997, finally demonstrated he could hit professional pitching in 2002, busting out with 25 homers in 297 Triple-A at bats before posting a .911 OPS in limited time with the Reds. Larson's time with the Reds was limited due to two freak injuries, a broken toe and a broken hand. The Reds are moving Aaron Boone to second base to create playing time for Larson. A quick start will be important for him, as Felipe Lopez is sitting on the bench looking for a place to play, and Russ Branyan will return from shoulder surgery in May and could steal the left-handed and better side of the platoon.
