RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Aaron Bates.

2010

Bates was an emergency midseason callup for Boston and started a few games at first base when Kevin Youkilis replaced an injured Mike Lowell (hip) at third base. He had power potential moving up through the lower stages of the system, but that fell off at higher levels. He adjusted his mechanics, resulting in improved numbers at Double-A, but the power remains in the "potential" zone. He's still on the team's 40-man roster, but we don't see him on the major league roster when the season starts.

2008

Bates struggled when moving from High-A Lancaster to Double-A Portland, slipping from .332 (373 AB) to .198 (91 AB) for the Sea Dogs. He's blessed with above-average power - including good power to the opposite field - and like a lot of Red Sox minor leaguers, understands the strike zone. He made California League history on May 19, belting four homers in a game for the Lancaster JetHawks. He'll begin the year in Portland and will be given time to learn Double-A pitchers.
