RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Farquhar lost his ninth-inning job last offseason when the Mariners signed Fernando Rodney, but he was probably more suited to setup work anyway with only two months of closing in 2013 on his resume. The resulting domino effect of moving Farquhar to the eighth inning helped a strengthened bullpen post the fifth-lowest ERA (2.59) in the last 40 years in the American League. Farquhar's strikeout rate dropped a bit from the previous year but was still strong, as was his strikeout-to-walk ratio. He stranded 24 of 30 inherited runners (80 percent) and held right-handed batters to a .206 average. His peripherals a similar 2.93 FIP and a relatively high .308 BABIP support his numbers, suggesting he should be effective again this season. Farquhar is only 5-foot-9, but he has a four-seam mid-90s fastball, in addition to a nasty cutter and curverball. He'll again be first in line to close behind Rodney.

2014

A non-roster invitee to spring training last year, the 5-foot-9 Farquhar was the unlikely successor to Tom Wilhelmsen as closer, but he made the most of his opportunity. After taking the job for good in early August, Farquhar saved 16-of-18 games and struck out 29 with 14 hits and eight walks allowed in 22.2 innings. He commanded his mid-90s four-seam fastball effectively, holding opposing batters to a .175 BAA. Acquired in the 2012 Ichiro Suzuki trade from the Yankees, Farquhar's 12.8 K/9 ranked fourth among AL relievers. Unless the Mariners shake up the bullpen in the offseason, the closer's job appears to be Farquhar's to lose in spring training.

2012

Farquhar didn't take kindly to the Pacific Coast League as he continues to struggle against lefties but still flashes plenty of gas with a mid-90s four-seam fastball. He'll need to better harness his command and come up with a pitch to handle lefties better if he wants to take the next step. He'll compete for a low-leverage bullpen spot this spring.
