RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Cody Buckel.
Buckel's control completely left him in 2013, as he walked 28 batters in 9.1 innings at Double-A Frisco to begin the year, before returning to lower competition in some complex games - where he walked seven in 1.1 innings. He entered the year as one of the more surprising pitching prospects around, particularly given his age, and he finished the year as one of the bigger disappointments. His career could go any number of directions at this point, but it's safe to say that he doesn't project as a back-end starter like he did a year ago.
Buckel earned a promotion to Double-A Frisco after a nice start to the year at High-A Myrtle Beach. He struggled in his first few starts at Double-A, but his season-ending numbers were decent. He doesn't throw hard, and doesn't project as a top-of-the-rotation starter as a result, but there's some thought that he could develop into a nice No. 4 starter if he's able to retain his control as he faces advanced hitters.
