RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for John Shelby.

2009

Somewhat comparable to his dad, Shelby is a converted infielder who projects defensively as a corner outfielder in the majors. With solid raw skills and some success behind him, a future as an MLB fourth outfielder with speed is within his grasp. He'll have to continue hitting for average at the higher levels -- at .290, he plays, but at .260, he doesn't.
