RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Dunn took a step back in 2012 along with the majority of the Miami bullpen, posting a 4.91 ERA and 1.77 WHIP over 44.0 innings. He managed to strike out over a batter per inning, working with mostly a fastball/slider combination, but a significant dip in his K/BB (1.6 in 2012, 2.2 in 2011) accompanied his statistical regression across the board. Dunn will continue to work as a left-handed setup man in the Marlins' bullpen ahead of closer Steve Cishek, but he needs to tighten up his control (5.9 BB/9) in order to solidify his place in the late innings this season.

2012

Dunn turned in a solid season as a setup man, displaying some semblance of control and parlaying a fastball that averaged 94 mph into better than a strikeout an inning. The free passes are still something of a concern here given his flyball tendencies and history of a high walk rate throughout his time in the minors. Expect him to fill a similar role in 2012 as the primary left-handed bridge to Heath Bell.

2011

Dunn has great velocity (94.8 average mph on fastballs last season) that results in outstanding strikeout rates (12.4 K/9IP between Triple-A and the majors last season). However, Dunn walks a few too many batters to think he'll be an elite reliever (5.71 BB/9IP between Triple-A and the majors last year). Still, he held lefties to a .581 OPS in the majors. He could move into a high-profile setup role with the Marlins after being traded from Atlanta in the offseason.

2010

After transitioning to the bullpen near the end of 2008, Dunn made the full-time switch to a relief role last season. Without having to pace himself for longer outings, he was able to pack some more heat on his fastball as a reliever, combining it with an improving slider to rack up 99 strikeouts in 73.1 innings (Double-A and Triple-A stats combined). His 46 walks indicate that his control needs work, but he's producing outs with regularity and should begin the year at Triple-A with a chance to progress to Atlanta (after he was traded from the Yankees in the Javier Vazquez deal) if he's needed.

2009

A converted outfielder, Dunn pitched well as a 23-year-old at High-A Tampa, ultimately transitioning to the bullpen after making 22 starts. Dunn throws a mid-90's fastball and is still honing his secondary pitches, which include a curveball and changeup. As he moves through the minors, he'll need to improve his command (4.20 9/IP) in order to remain effective, but the Yankees could eventually have an effective left-handed middle reliever on their hands if his development continues its current course. He was added to the team's 40-man roster in November over a number of other intriguing options, so the Yankees must see something they like in him.
