RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Axelrod spent much of 2012 bouncing between Triple-A Charlotte and the majors, and between the White Sox's rotation and the bullpen. He showed some promise at Triple-A, striking out nearly three times as many batters as he walked, but that rate narrowed to under two in his 51 innings in Chicago. He should be staring down a long-relief/swing role in 2013, with a long shot possibility to compete for the No. 5 starter role depending on the team's other moves during the offseason.

2012

Axelrod went from being a 24-year-old at High-A in 2010 to starting three games for the White Sox in September of 2011. He walked very few between Double-A and Triple-A (2.09 BB/9IP), and he allowed home runs to even fewer (three total). He rarely touches 90 mph on the radar gun, but his extreme groundball tendencies could keep the home-run totals low, even with his home games at U.S. Cellular Field. He might need another go-around at Triple-A Charlotte to prove 2011 was not a fluke, but he could be in the back of the White Sox's rotation before long.
