RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Sogard is a true utility player with the ability to play second base, third base and shortstop. Unfortunately, his offense has not translated to the majors at all. Sogard has hit over .300 at Triple-A over the last three years in nearly 1,000 at-bats, but in his short-term callups in Oakland, he has hit under .200. Even if he managed to find steady playing time, he does not possess enough speed or pop to generate much interest.

2012

Sogard earned his way to the majors midseason following a .298/.381/.410 line at Triple-A Sacramento, though he failed to hit (.200/.243/.329 over 70 at-bats) for the A's in a reserve role. He's expected to compete with Adam Rosales for the A's utility infielder role during spring training, but Sogard hasn't racked up impressive home-run or stolen-base totals in the minors and that leads us to believe he's little more than a low-end stopgap for deep fantasy leagues than anything else.
