RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Consistent issues with command at every stop in the minors once looked like it might force Matzek, the No. 9 overall draft pick by the Rockies in 2009, to move to relief in order to reach the big leagues. The organization gave him one last gasp at working as a starter at Triple-A, and after he showed mild improvement with finding the strike zone over 12 outings with Colorado Springs, he made his MLB debut in June. Thereafter, Matzek shocked everybody by registering a 4.05 ERA (3.78 FIP) over 117.2 innings, highlighted by a complete-game shutout of the Padres in September. He finished with a 3.4 BB/9 rate, the lowest mark of his professional career at any level, and yielded grounders on nearly half his balls in play. Itís too early to proclaim that Matzek has resolved his command woes, but the leftyís sensational final month (1.69 ERA, 27:9 K:BB in 26.2 frames) has him trending in the right direction. In fact, if he can maintain Septemberís strikeout-per-inning output, Matzek might offer more fantasy potential than any of the Rockies' other starters.

2014

For the second consecutive season, Matzek exhibited some modest growth in commanding his pitches, trimming his walk rate from 14.6 to 12.1 percent. Still, even that figure is probably too high for Matzek to find sustained success in the majors, especially since the improvement was coupled with a drop in his strikeout rate of seven percentage points. Matzekís first-round pedigree and fleeting dominance on the rare occasions he finds the strike zone were enough for the Rockies to protect him from the Rule 5 Draft, but he seems to be facing a make-or-break season with several more promising pitching prospects coming up the pipeline. If Matzek fails to make further gains with his command at Triple-A Colorado Springs this season, the Rockies would probably look to transition him into full-time relief duty.

2012

Matzek can miss bats (10.29 K/9IP at Low-A and High-A) but seems to have no idea where the ball is going, as he issued 96 walks over 97 innings last season. The young left-hander even took a leave from the organization midseason to work with a former pitching instructor on his mechanics, and it's possible that he figured something out late in the year as he shaved his walk rate to 4.17 BB/9IP over 41 innings in August and September. The Rockies will probably start him back at High-A Modesto in hopes that the improved control he displayed late last season gets him back on track.

2011

Matzek, the Rockies' 2009 first-round pick, is a hard-throwing lefty with a full arsenal of pitches. In 2010, he spent the season at Low-A Asheville with a 2.92 ERA, 8.9 K/9IP strikeout rate and .198 batting average against. His 6.3 BB/9IP walk rate is concerning, but he's only one year removed from high school, so he's still developing. Once he gets over that hump, he should be able to pitch deeper into games and hit his stride. He's regarded as a player that should move quickly through the Rockies' system and could make his debut as early as 2011. Those in keeper leagues should take note of Matzek's talents, if they haven't already done so.

2010

The Rockies' first-round pick in 2009, Matzek participated in the instructional league during the fall, but will get his first taste of pro ball in 2010. Projected to remain in extended spring training (warm weather) before moving to Low-A, Matzek has the Rockies excited with his 94-96 mph fastball and a full repertoire that includes a curve, slider and changeup, as well as his great work ethic, competitive nature and polished mechanics at such a young age. Matzek is said to mix all of his pitches very well while keeping hitters off balance by changing speeds and location. Look for Matzek to progress quickly and have an impact role in the Rockies' rotation no later than late 2011, putting him firmly on the radar for those in keeper leagues.
