RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Tommy Hottovy.

2013

The 31-year-old Hottovy spent most of his 2012 season in Triple-A where he amassed a 2-2 record with a 2.42 ERA and a 61:16 K:BB over 50 innings. He was given a shot with the big club, but his minor league success never translated and while he posted a 2.89 ERA over just 9.1 innings in 2012, his FIP sat at 6.52 and he posted a very unimpressive 1.71 WHIP. With much younger and stronger arms in the Royals bullpen and farm system, Hottovy was deemed expendable and he was subsequently dealt to the Rangers in the offseason where he will compete for a spot in the bullpen. In all likelihood, he will open the year in the minors again.

2007

The Red Sox have turned Hottovy into a starter although he had a four-year career at Wichita State as a reliever. He had some success at high-A Wilmington in 2006, but wasn't pitching against age-appropriate competition. He was less effective in seven Double-A starts. The lefty's best pitch is his curve, which is complemented by high 80s two- and four-seam fast balls and a decent change. At 25, he has just 41 innings above Single-A, so he won't be making an impact at the major leagues for at least two seasons.

2004

Among the slew of college pitchers taken by the Red Sox in the 2004 draft, Hottovy features good command of the strike zone.
