RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Lou Palmisano.
Palmisano had a terrific first half in 2007 but fell hard in the second half and ended with a .256/.368/.419 line. His biggest assets are his defense and ability to get on base. He profiles as a backup catcher if he makes it to the majors.
Palmisano had a dismal season in 2005, hitting .255 with a .309 OBP for high-A Brevard County. He's still the best catching prospect in the Milwaukee farm system, but don't expect him to make the majors any time soon.
Palmisano had a solid season at low Single-A Beloit, but the Brewers were hoping for a little bit more. He's still the top catching prospect in the Brewers minor league system. He hit .293 with a respectable .371 OBP but only hit seven HR and 22 doubles. He also needs to progress behind the plate before he can be considered for a major league job. Palmisano may begin the season at high Single-A, but it's more likely that he'll jump to Double-A for 2005.
