RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Greg Golson.

2012

Scouts love Golson's collection of raw tools, but he's shown virtually no ability to refine them, and at age 26 he's past the point where he's ever going to put it all together. He'll try to win a reserve role with the Royals in spring training after signing a minor league deal, but he doesn't appear to have any upside.

2011

Golson got his first extended taste of big league action last season, hitting .261/.261/.348 in 24 games. As that line indicates, plate discipline isn't his strong suit, and he has a mediocre .309 OBP in seven minor league seasons. His biggest value to the team - as a pinch-runner and defensive replacement - probably won't be enough to earn him a spot on the Opening Day roster.

2010

Golson continued to show poor plate discipline, drawing just 29 walks against 113 K in 453 at-bats at Triple-A Oklahoma City. It predictably resulted in a poor season (.256/.297/.342) and his moderate power has diminished as he's advanced through the minors. There's nothing to get excited about here.

2009

The 23-year-old Golson hit .282 with 13 home runs, 60 RBI and 23 stolen bases last season at Double-A in 106 games. The key stat, however, is his 34:130 BB:K ratio in 426 at-bats. Until his plate discipline improves, it's hard to see him making a big impact at the major league level, even with his good speed.

2006

Golson is a bonus baby first-rounder out of high school. He had a decent season in Low-A in 2005 (.264 with 25 SB) but is still light years away from the major leagues.

2005

Golson was the Phillies first-round pick in the 2004 draft from a Texas high school. The speedy outfielder signed quickly and hit .295/.345/.410 in the rookie Gulf Coast League. He's at least three or four years away from the majors.

2004

Golson's a very toolsy guy and with speed to burn, and could play Centerfield or right with a strong arm. The high schooler’s bat speed and build suggest power and average once he’s muscled up his 6-1 frame.
