RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

There was no outlook written for Matt Bush.

2012

After signing a minor league deal with the Rays, Bush appeared in 36 games at Double-A Montgomery posting a 4.83 ERA with a 1.437 WHIP. The former No. 1 overall pick from the 2004 draft has seen his once promising career derailed by an elbow injury along with off-field issues. Now 25, he possesses little upside although his 77 strikeouts in 50.1 innings is likely enough for him to catch on with another club if the Rays don't re-sign him.

2006

Bush struggled at Single-A in 2005, showing no power, weak on-base skills, less speed than expected and even erratic defense. That isn't what you want from a first-round pick, let alone the first overall pick in the 2004 draft. Bush is young enough to rebound, but right now the risk of this pick being a complete bust is fairly high. There are even rumors that he might be converted to pitcher if his bat doesn't come around.

2005

The Padres made the young shortstop the first pick in the 2004 draft because he was signable at an inexpensive price and a native of the San Diego area. The local boy makes good marketing angle blew up in their face after an incident in an Arizona nightclub had him facing misdemeanor charges, and his performance subsequent to a team suspension didn't wow anybody. The 19-year-old is too young to be considered a bust, but suffice to say there were better, albeit more expensive, options in the entry draft.

2004

Bush projects as a quality defender with a powerful arm. Solid defensively, his bat is more of a concern as he could be a .290 hitter as a major leaguer, but scouts say his power will be limited to gap range. He's a smart baserunner who accelerates on the base paths, but is not a speed demon and tends to be slow out of the box. As a high schooler he's likely a few years away from being a concern as his bat needs to develop to catch his defensive prowess.
