RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Fernando Cortez.

2006

Cortez had a pretty decent season at Double-A last year. He'll repeat Triple-A in 2006, and if the Devil Rays follow through with the idea of moving Jorge Cantu off second base for defensive reasons some day, Cortez could be the first organizational option at that position.
