RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Otero started the 2013 season in the minors, but after his callup in June, he became one of the best and most trusted arms in the A's bullpen. Otero finished the year with a 1.38 ERA and only gave up three earned runs in his last 32 innings. Otero used excellent control (1.4 BB/9) and kept the ball in the park all season to make up for his mediocre strikeout rate (6.2 K/9) and number of hits he gave up (9.7 H/9). Without overpowering stuff, Otero is best suited in middle relief or a setup role, while the A's addition of Jim Johnson should keep him a few chairs away from the closer's role even if something goes wrong in the Oakland bullpen.

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.
