RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Dave Berg.
Triple-A Pawtucket has become a staging area where the Red Sox hold experienced veterans like Berg in case of an emergency. It's unlikely that he makes the major league club and has gold-glove third baseman Mike Lowell ahead of him if he does stick.
Berg battled fatigue issues that sidelined him for a month and his numbers after his return were decent for a utility player but nothing special. There's not much left in the bat.
Berg has gone from qualifying just about everywhere in leagues that need 10 games at a position to qualifying at just 2B (24 games) and 3B (17 games). He'll see the occasional start against the tougher lefties in the league, but there's nothing more than a utility role awaiting him.
Had a useful season as a utility player, racking up a career high 374 at-bats. Now that Jayson Werth and one of the Orlando Hudson/Felipe Lopez duo can be expected to spend the entire season in the big leagues, Berg's playing time will likely be reduced. Leagues that need just 10 games played at a position will find Berg qualifying at 1B/2B/3B/SS/OF, so he'll have value as a utility player in larger AL-only leagues.
