RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Clevenger missed the first two months of 2013 with an oblique injury and was traded to Baltimore, where he missed more time with injury. He finally got a chance to back up Matt Wieters at the very end of the season and figures to enter 2014 as the favorite to win the same role. Clevenger has a knack for getting on base, collecting an OBP just under .400 over his last three minor league seasons, but he had a pedestrian season at the plate when he was the backup for the Cubs in 2012. If the Orioles are truly willing to listen to trade offers for Wieters, a more prominent role is possible for Clevenger.

2013

Clevenger beat out Welington Castillo for the backup job last spring and started off strong only to see his production fall off a cliff as the season went on. He finished with a .201/.260/.276 line in 190 at-bats and as such might not even secure the backup job with the Cubs' addition of Dioner Navarro in free agency over the winter. Unless the Cubs opt to carry three catchers, Clevenger may be headed back to Triple-A Iowa.

2012

Backup catcher - above average bat for a reserve backstop.
