RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Chris Singleton.
Singleton was invited to the Devil Rays camp as a spring NRI, and against long odds, he made the 25-man roster. He'll start the season as the fourth outfielder, likely becoming Alex Sanchez' late inning defensive caddy in center field, and could get occassional DH at-bats as well.
Singleton's defense in center is starting to slip, which is where his value lies given his weak bat. The A's declined their contract option, leaving Singleton to fend for himself in what figures to be a bloated free agent market.
Singleton is hardly your prototypical A's player, in that his walk rate is particularly putrid. However, the A's signed him for his defense in center, where Terrence Long was less than good. The change in franchises probably will do nothing to improve his bat.
