RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Culberson was acquired in a midseason trade from the Giants for Marco Scutaro and made a good impression upon arrival at Triple-A Colorado Springs, batting .336 while displaying moderate power and speed. For all his strengths, Culberson boasts a career minor league OBP of .311 and a strikeout rate approaching 20 percent, indications that he is not quite ready for the majors. Furthermore, while Culberson does have experience at three infield positions, he is viewed as below adequate defensively at any position besides second base, which could damage his chances of latching on in a utility role over the sure-handed D.J. LeMahieu.

2011

Culberson hit .292 with 16 homers over 503 at-bats in High-A San Jose last season, and while his 33:99 BB:K ratio wasn't impressive, and the California League is conducive for hitting, it was still a solid line for a 21-year-old. Since he also added 25 stolen bases, he's on the radar in keeper fantasy leagues, but he's still quite a bit away from contributing at the big league level.
