RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Brach battled issues with his control in 2012 and while those issues did not get the better of him, they did put a damper on what could have been a more successful rookie season in the majors. On the bright side, he managed to strike out nearly 27 percent of the batters he faced, flexing a fastball/slider combination that made him very successful while he was in the minors. Still, he had trouble keeping the ball in the yard, which complicated things further. Brach never battled issues with either his control or the long ball in the minors, so there's good reason to believe he can turn things around in 2013 and become a productive member of their bullpen, perhaps just not yet in the high-leverage situations that some had hoped for when he first came up.

2012

With the departure of Heath Bell, the door has opened for relievers in the San Diego bullpen and with a strong spring, Brach could make himself a part of the team's late-inning plans. With an 11.04 K/9IP and an outstanding 7.25 K/BB over three years and 223 innings in the minors, Brach is certainly in line for a bigger test than just the September callup he received last year. He regularly hits 93 mph on the gun with his fastball and uses a nasty 84 mph slider to keep hitters fishing outside the strike zone. He should prove to be a valuable setup man in 2012 and could even be a dark horse for some save work this season should anything happen to Huston Street.
