RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Ben Weber.

2005

Weber's season started bad and got worse. Opposing batters turned into Ted Williams against him, batting .363 with a 1.013 OPS until the Angels finally sent him to the minors and ultimately granted him his release. If his right shoulder is okay come spring he might bounce back, but at 35 his days of being a closer of the future are long gone.

2004

Weber had another solid season as part of Anaheim's amazing veteran relief corps. When Weber keeps the ball on the ground, he's a very effective set-up man. He's a solid endgame buy.

2003

Known more for those goofy goggles and that angry snarl, but he is also a good set-up man to Frankie Rodriguez and Troy Percival. Will lose some holds and won't be the second in line to get saves thanks to Rodriguez, meaning he doesn't have much fantasy value unless the two in front of him go down.
