RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Chip Ambres.

2006

Ambres came to Kansas City from Boston in a trade for Tony Graffanino. The deal gave Kansas City a prospect with leadoff speed but not quite the eye. He's a nice gap hitter, but he hasn't shown enough power to hold down a corner spot over the long haul. Ambres will need to work on making contact and using his great speed to become a full-time threat. At this point, he tops out as a decent fourth outfielder.

2004

Ambres did not impress in his first look at Double-A, and he'll be 24 in 2004. He might bloom late, but as yet he hasn't started blooming at all in the Marlins organization.

2003

A first-rounder in 1998, but injuries have slowed his progress to a crawl. His .256/.356/.444 showing in the Arizona Fall League probably earned him his first look at Double-A in 2003, but he'll have to come on strong to end up as anything more than a fourth OF in the majors.
