RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Vogelsong followed up his surprise 2011 campaign with a strong performance in 2012. As expected, his ERA increased to 3.37, but his strikeout rate also increased to 7.5 K/9 while he lowered his walk rate to a career-best 2.9 BB/9. His below average BABIP (.284) and HR/FB rate (8.2 percent) fall right in line with his career rates, and he has pitched extremely well in AT&T Park since last year (2.15 in 2011 and 2.79 in 2012). In addition, his below average line drive rate (18.5 percent) helped to contribute to his BABIP. It is more likely that Vogelsong will finish with an ERA above 3.50 this season as his peripherals will somewhat regress.

2012

Vogelsong finished 2011 with a 2.71 ERA and 1.252 WHIP, and while his 139:61 K:BB ratio over 179.2 innings wasn't overly impressive, he was no fluke. There's little doubt his ERA will climb next season after leaving 80.4 percent of his baserunners stranded and carrying a .280 BABIP, but he'll enter 2012 as the Giants' No. 4 starter, and there's no reason to expect him to be a major bust, even if regression is a certainty. Just make sure not to draft him off last year's numbers, but he's in the right park to remain plenty valuable, especially if others in your league don't believe in him at all.

2006

The Pirates are considering Vogelsong for the fifth starter's spot after he showed promise out of the bullpen with a decent second-half performance in 2005. Pittsburgh's primary return in the ill-fated 2001 Jason Schmidt deal, Vogelsong has gotten every possible chance to succeed at the major-league level. He hasn't been good. In 2004, he sported the major's worst earned run average among qualified starters, with a 6.50 ERA in 133 innings. Last year he started off on the same track, posting a pre All-Star game mark of 5.49. He cleaned things up a bit after the break, with a 3.49 ERA. It will take a lot to undo the last couple years of futility. He's always had the stuff to be successful, but has yet to put it all together.

2005

Vogelsong secured the fifth spot in the Pittsburgh starting rotation after his outstanding performance in Spring Training last year, but he struggled with his command all season and lost his starting job to Sean Burnett before returning to the rotation after Kris Benson was traded in July. He’ll compete for the fifth rotation spot once again this spring, but unless he is light’s out, he figures to head north as a swing-man.

2004

Vogelsong bounced back well enough from elbow troubles last season, but his upside is limited. Acquired from the Giants in the 2001 Jason Schmidt give-away, he has showed flashes of competence, but he will be just one of many fighting for the job as Pittsburgh's fifth starter.

2003

Elbow surgery at the end of 2001 cost Vogelsong most of 2002. He made a dozen starts in the minors, almost none of them effective. He’ll have his ups and downs in 2003, and the Pirates would do well to let him work through them at Nashville until he has some success.
