RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Vance Wilson.

2009

Wilson has undergone ligament replacement surgery in each of the last two summers. He is expected to be healthy in time for spring training but he'll need to prove he's healthy before winning any kid of role with the Royals as a backup catcher this spring.

2008

Wilson missed all of the 2007 due to elbow soreness and eventually underwent Tommy John surgery in June when rehab proved ineffective. He's expected to be healthy enough to be the backup catcher with the Tigers this year, but hes unlikely to get more than 150 at-bats playing behind Ivan Rodriguez.

2007

Wilson played sparingly as Ivan Rodriguez's backup last season. He's an adequate reserve but won't play more than one day a week if Rodriguez manages to stay healthy all season.

2006

Wilson played sparingly as Ivan Rodriguez's backup last season. He's an adequate reserve but doesn't do enough with the bat to generate any fantasy interest.

2005

Last season began with Wilson as the third man behind the plate who was expected to only play when both Jason Phillips and Mike Piazza needed a day off. Just when he broke out of that role in August to receive fairly regular playing time he ruptured a ligament in his left hand, which forced him to have season-ending surgery in September. Now with the Tigers, his projected playing time depends solely on the health of Ivan Rodriguez.

2004

Wilson saw extended playing time in 2003 due to Mike Piazza's injury. He got off to a strong start but a 1-for-49 slump cost him the starting catching job to Jason Phillips. Once Piazza returned, Wilson was limited to 46 at bats over the last two months of the year and begins 2004 as the third man on the depth chart.

2003

Wilson will remain of little value unless the Mets move Piazza to first, which won't happen unless Vaughn gets hurt again. Still, when called upon, Wilson did produce five home runs and 26 RBI in 74 at bats.
