RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

A foot injury cost Smolinski nearly two months during the second half, after he was a surprise callup when the Rangers were scrambling for healthy bodies last season. A second-round pick of the Nationals in 2007, Smolinksi had reached the big leagues for the first time at age 25. The surface numbers from his limited sample were impressive, but he struck out at a 26.1% clip while posting a meager 3.3% walk rate. It's worth noting, however, that Smolinski had posted a double-digit walk rate at every minor league stop since 2011, while maintaining a career strikeout rate well below 20.0% as a minor leaguer. Prior to the call to Texas, Smolinski was showing more power in the minor leagues than he had previously, tapping into a tool that had been lacking. Defensively, he's been moved around the diamond over the course of his career as a professional, but Smolinski may be versatile enough to stick as a bench player with the Rangers.
