RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Jeff Liefer.

2006

A Quadruple-A slugger who last hit over .230 in the big leagues in 2001. His 18 home runs in 254 at bats that year keep getting him chances, as does his 39 Triple-A home runs over the past two seasons. He just can't carry it over to the big leagues. He'll play in Japan in 2006.

2003

Liefer struggled to find his stroke last year, hitting 13 fewer homers and losing almost 150 points off his SLG from 2001. Joe Borchard's development means there's now one more bat looking for playing time in the OF/1B/DH mix, which also doesn't bode well for Liefer. He could easily find himself elsewhere in 2003.
