RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

For Belisario, the velocity was still there in 2013, as his hard sinking fastball averaged 94.4 mph, but location was an issue, and the end result was a disappointing 3.97 ERA. He saw his K/9 dip from 8.8 to 6.5, though a 3.5 GB/FB ratio helped limit the damage from his 3.7 BB/9. Belisario could be a candidate for the eighth inning this year but will have to prove himself again this spring in order to earn a high-leverage role. The White Sox's bullpen also features an unsettled closer situation following the trade of Addison Reed, but Belisario enters the season as a long shot to receive the chance to close out games.

2013

Belisario was a pleasant surprise for the Dodgers last year, overcoming personal issues (a visa issue and a 25-game suspension for a "drug of abuse") to again be a key member of the bullpen. He tossed 71 innings of 2.54 ERA ball while winning eight games and posting an excellent 69:29 K:BB. His hard-sinking mid-90s fastball appeared to be just as good as it was in his breakout season of 2009. He'll return to the back end of the bullpen in 2013 and should something happen to Brandon League and Kenley Jansen, he could find himself with opportunities to close out games.

2011

Visa and personal issues combined to knock Belisario from being a key member of the 2009 bullpen (2.04 ERA in 70 innings) to a pitcher who may not be with the team come Opening Day 2011. Because he was behind from the get-go, Belisario wasn't nearly as sharp as he had been the previous year. His slider wasn't as crisp, forcing him to rely on a fastball that lacked its former velocity. He'll likely be forced to compete for a job this spring.

2010

Belisario was a pleasant surprise for the Dodgers in 2009, tossing 70.2 innings with a 2.04 ERA and 64:29 K:BB. "Belly" will turn 27 on New Year's Eve and should once again be a top setup man for manager Joe Torre in 2010.
