Sam Fuld was acquired by the Tampa Bay Rays in the Matt Garza deal as kind of a throw-in at the end of the deal.

Fuld will be 29 for the entire 2011 season and possesses no real plus skill. He has good speed, plays good defense, has good plate discipline, but no power and no real hit-tool. He was never given a real chance to play everyday and I assume he still will not have that same chance with the Rays as he projects to be their 5th outfielder.

Here are his projected stats:

 Stat  Total
 AVG  .267
 OBP  .349
 SLG  .358
 OPS  .705
 Plate App.  272
 At-Bats  243
 Hits  65
 Homeruns  2
 Doubles  10
 Triples  3
 BB  28
 SO  30
 SB  12
 UZR  +2


These projections may be a bit high in playing time but I am assuming he steals a few at-bats due to his ability to play the outfield better than the recent free agent hires. These projections put him around +0.6-0.7 fWAR. Not a bad projection for the last man on a roster.
