RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Brent Butler.
Butler is looking more and more like a Triple-A player and less like a starter with each season that passes. Formerly part of the Rockies' logjam in the middle of the infield, Butler is probably best suited as a platoon-type utility guy who has returned to the roost, as a former Cardinals prospect. He's never shown the ability to get on base, and seems best suited as a late-inning defensive replacement, though there are plenty of teams that would be willing to take a chance on a guy with a nearly .850 career OPS at Triple-A.
The starting second base job is his for now, but the Rockies brought in Pablo Ozuna in a trade from Florida to compete with him. Butler struggled to get on base at an acceptable rate last year (.298 OBP), a common trait among the Rockies in 2002.
