RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Mike Hessman.

2009

Hessman hit more than 30 home runs for the second straight season at Triple-A last year and was also selected to play for Team USA during the Olympics. He saw some time in Detroit toward the end of the year as a September callup. While Hessman has no problem hitting the ball out of the yard, it is what he does with the rest of his at-bats that has kept him out of the majors this long. He strikes out a lot. Despite that, the Tigers could let him compete for a bench job this spring. He's probably deserving of spot as his pop on the bench would be a nice asset.

2008

Hessman got his first taste of the majors last season since a short stint with the Braves in 2004. He has displayed big time power throughout his minor league career, but he also strikes out a ton. Tigers manager Jim Leyland seems to like Hessman as a bench option at the corner infield spots so he should get a chance to earn a roster spot this spring. His power would be nice to have on the bench, but his propensity to whiff would limit his value.

2006

Hessman's power last year at Triple-A came at the expense of plate discipline and average. The Tigers have plenty of outfield and first base depth, so his chances of getting an opportunity are slim.

2005

Hessman struggled in a brief call-up with the Braves last season. He's shown strong power throughout his minor league career, but has been too much of a free swinger to project any success at the major league level.

2004

Hessman has shown strong power throughout his major league career, but has been too much of a free swinger to be anything but a pinch hitter at the major league level.
