RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Lou Merloni.
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

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.
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.
