RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Ruben Mateo.

2004

Last season represented a continuing variation on a theme for Mateo's career with the Reds. After suffering a badly broken leg in 2000, he has never been able to overcome the downgrade in his tools to make up for his weaknesses, and thus appears to be a poor bet to achieve anything near the tremendous potential he once had as a Rangers prospect. He joins Brandon Larson and Wily Mo Pena as players without options remaining who will have to fight for a roster spot.

2003

Mateo has never been able to work his way back to his pre-injury form. Time isn't quite running out on him yet he'll be just 25 in 2003, but he's nowhere near the prospect he used to be. Plate discipline has never been part of his skill set.
