RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Lou Merloni.

2007

Played in 19 games for the Tribe last year, after topping out at 194 at-bats in 2002 with Boston. If he finds a job in 2006, he'll likely taking a lot of bus rides in the minors

2006

By now you know what you get with Merloni, a role player who is not going to provide much value. Steer clear and find an option with some upside as there is none here.

2005

Merloni, who has been a lifetime role-player in the majors, saw much playing time to start the 2004 season until he was put on the DL in August with inflammation in his right elbow. Although he can play multiple positions and hit for average, he will most likely continue to be used as a role-player for the Indians in the middle infield.

2004

Merloni is a local guy (Framingham, MA) who fit back in well with Boston after arriving from a brief stint with San Diego. He plays several positions, which has become a highly-desirable trait in contemporary baseball. He won't play enough to be fantasy-worthy.

2003

Nomar's buddy with Ben Affleck as a patron, but neither does anything to make him worth your time.
