RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Chris Leroux.

2013

Leroux passed through waivers unclaimed during the 2012 season, much to the surprise of Pittsburgh. Moved to the rotation at Triple-A, the righty registered a 3.11 ERA and 1.04 WHIP in 63.2 innings for the Indianapolis after missing the first half with a strained pectoral muscle. Leroux gave up seven runs in 11 innings for the Pirates in 10 September relief outings. He put up a 12:2 K:BB ratio for the Bucs, but at 28, the odds aren't on his side for long-term major league success.

2012

With an average fastball clocked at 93.6 mph, Leroux throws hard and has a good strikeout rate (8.3 K/9IP career at Triple-A) with decent control. He gave the Pirates innings in the second half of the season when they were hard to come by, but he doesn't project prominently in the Pittsburgh bullpen. There's some thought that he could be a late bloomer as a converted catcher, but he hasn't lit the world on fire in the minors. He did have an impressive 2.88 ERA in 25 big league innings last season, but he still hasn't established himself as a big leaguer -- something he looks to do in 2012.

2011

Pittsburgh claimed Leroux late in the 2010 campaign from Florida. The lanky right-hander appeared in six games as a reliever, showing a good fastball but with little control. If he can harness his mid-90s fastball, then there's a chance he could spend some time in Pittsburgh's bullpen. Most likely, however, he'll throw for Triple-A Indianapolis. Leroux is a converted catcher, so there's a slight possibility that he could be a late bloomer. There's little reason to pick him up in fantasy leagues, however, until he commands his fastball.

2010

Leroux put up decent numbers at Double-A in 2009 but got crushed in a couple of brief big league stints, and given that the Marlins have plenty of other sinkerball pitchers with better resumes in their system, it should be very tough for Leroux to earn any sort of regular bullpen job in Florida.
