RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Tim Hummel.
The Red Sox claimed Hummel off waivers from Cincinnati late in the 2004 season. His prospect days are over, but he could land on the 25-man roster as a utility infielder if he can play a decent shortstop. He's capable of playing second and third but Boston already has Kevin Youkilis at third and really need a backup shortstop. The club is expected to add some infield free agents and that will make clearer Hummel's chances of landing a job.
Hummell has a chance to begin the season as the Reds' starting third baseman, especially if D'Angelo Jimenez is playing second. Hummell hasn't hit for the power that some projected for him as he progressed through the White Sox farm system and is insufficient for a third baseman. Alas, his defensive range is too limited for him to stick as a shortstop.
Hummel still has a good defensive reputation, but a .346 SLG in 523 Triple-A at bats shows exactly how far he is from being a productive major leaguer.
