RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Adam Piatt.
Piatt hit .227-6-18 in 132 AB split between Oakland and Tampa Bay last year. Disappointing, yes, but we didn't know that the Rays were so well stocked with right-handed hitters that they could afford to get rid of Piatt, however. We said last year that if Piatt ever got 400 ABs in a corner-outfield-DH role, he'd hit 20 home runs (and actually, he wasn't far off that pace last year); check in the spring to see if his new team gives him that much playing time.
The year started poorly, as he was sidelined with a strained oblique for much of spring training and never got on track. He hit well for a brief time after being called up following the trade of Jeremy Giambi, but soon found himself benched, and, eventually, in Triple-A following the sale of John Mabry's soul to the devil in return for three good months. Mashed Triple-A pitching, which earned him a call-up for a fun September. Could help the A's, and a spot might open up if David Justice decides to retire and Oakland is unable to land another corner outfield bat. 400 at-bats would result in 20 home runs.
