2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

After saving 24 games in 2011 and pitching well enough to earn a significant role in the bullpen last season, things didn't go so well for Salas in the early going. On July 1 his ERA stood at 6.04 and he'd already had a brief stint with Triple-A Memphis. Salas righted the ship in the second half, including a nice July/August run of 24.2 IP, 13 H, 26:6 K:BB, and a 1.46 ERA. So who is the real Fernando Salas? The one in 2011 and those two months of 2012, or the one who struggled the rest of the season? The answer will likely determine what his role is this year, but he should get the ball a lot regardless.

2012

Of all the closers the Cardinals tried out last year, Salas held the job the longest. Unfortunately for him, though, he didn't have the job at the end of the year, and he won't have it at the start of 2012 either. It certainly wasn't his overall numbers that got him the boot, but more likely the two blown saves in August combined with the emergence of Jason Motte. Still, with a 75:21 K:BB, 0.947 WHIP and 2.28 ERA, Salas, who closed for Triple-A Memphis in 2010, will be an important part of the St. Louis bullpen again this year.

2011

Salas was up and down so many times last season that it was hard to keep track of his whereabouts. He had a major league ERA of 1.66 as late as Sept. 8, but after giving up eight runs in his last nine innings of the season it was clear he ran out of gas. He showed some promise as the Triple-A closer, most notably in his 44:9 K:BB ratio in just 35.2 innings, but the 25-year-old was already in his second year in Memphis, and Triple-A closers don't necessarily profile to become major league closers. He'll be up and down again in 2011.

2009

In only his second year in the minors, the Mexican-born Salas showed phenomenal improvement for Double-A Springfield. The 100:16 K:BB ratio in 74 innings is not a misprint, but the 12 home runs given up shows he still has some work to do. He might need another year or two, but we could be hearing rumblings of Salas as the Cardinals closer by 2010.
