RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Otero spent most of 2012 in Fresno, but broke camp with the Giants and made 12 appearances during April and September. The 27-year-old does not feature overpowering stuff (89.9 mph fastball along with slider, curveball and change) which has translated to 7.6 K/9 over his minor league career (6.5 K/9 in Triple-A in 2012). However, his walk rate this season in Fresno (0.6 BB/9) was very impressive and it has been his top skill over his minor league career (1.2 BB/9). It is conceivable he could break camp with the Giants once again, but will probably provide bullpen depth in Triple-A for most of the year.
