RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Andrew Albers.
Albers was a late bloomer who got called up last August and began his career with two great starts before coming back down to earth. The lefty previously pitched in independent ball before signing with the Twins in 2011, becoming a productive reliever at High-A and Double-A. He moved into the rotation at Triple-A in 2013 and thrived with a 2.86 ERA and 116:32 K:BB ratio in 132.1 innings. Albers was called up to the majors in August with the Twins desperate for starters, coming within two outs of a shutout in his first start and delivering a two-hit shutout in his second turn. It was all downhill thereafter, as Albers went 0-5 with a 5.75 ERA and 4.3 K/9 in his next eight starts. Albers' unusual delivery may have fooled hitters initially, but his lack of velocity (86.6 mph fastball average) eventually became a problem. He may have had a shot to win a role with the Twins again, but instead chose to sign with the Hanwha Eagles of the Korea Baseball Organization for 2014.
