RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Damian Rolls.

2005

Rolls has some speed and can play defense, but after nearly 900 plate appearances in the big leagues with a career OPS of just .628, he's not a major league hitter. Tampa Bay released him in November. He'll wind up somewhere, but probably as no more than a 25th man with limited roto impact.

2004

Eight different players got starts at third base for Tampa Bay last year, but no one played it better than Rolls, who was second in the majors (behind only Eric Chavez) amongst third basemen in range factor. Rolls was also red-hot at the plate for about two months, but tailed off significantly late in the year. We're still not sure if the Rays are convinced that Rolls can be an everyday third baseman, or just a Mark McLemore-type 100-games-a-year super-utilityman; check in the spring to see what the Rays' plans for Rolls are.

2003

Rolls hit well in a cup-of-coffee stint in the bigs last September (.292, 26-for-89 in 21 games) after spending 2001 as a millstone on the big league roster due to his Rule V status. He has a legitimate shot as a reserve outfielder job with the Devil Rays with some potential for stealing bases (14 in 106 career MLB games, 15 in 67 games for Triple-A Durham last season). The Rays will start the spring with Rocco Baldelli in center field; if the phenom needs more time before he's big-league-ready, Rolls could sneak into some quasi-regular PT in the outfield.
