The additions of Prince Fielder and Shin-Soo Choo in the offseason could push the Rangers over the top and to the AL West title in 2014. There are, however, some big question marks behind Yu Darvish in the rotation.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Armando Galarraga.

2011

Other than his much-publicized imperfect game on June 2 against the Indians, Galarraga had an unspectacular season in 2010. The 29-year-old finished 4-9 with a 4.49 ERA and a 74:51 K:BB ratio in 144.1 innings. His K/9IP dipped for the second straight year, dropping from a career-high 6.35 in 2008 to 4.61 last season. Despite his pedestrian numbers, Galarraga is considered the early favorite to land the No. 5 spot in the Tigers' rotation. After three seasons in the majors, we've seen the ceiling (2008) and floor (2009) for Galarraga, and he will likely wind up falling somewhere in between on a yearly basis. Deep or AL-only leagues might be able to find minimal value here, but shallower formats should avoid him.

2010

Galarraga was a surprise Rookie of the Year candidate in 2008, but most of that shine has worn off after a disappointing sophomore campaign. After posting a 13-7 record with a 3.73 ERA as a rookie, Galarraga fell to 6-10 with a 5.64 ERA last season. The main culprit for his struggles was a rise in his BABIP, going from an unsustainable .242 in his first season to a more realistic .302. The drop in production pushed Galarraga to the bullpen, and the 28-year-old right-hander will have to battle for the fifth spot in the rotation during spring training.

2009

Galarraga, acquired from the Rangers before last season began, was one of the few bright spots on a disappointing Tigers pitching staff. When an injury sidelined Dontrelle Willis, he got his chance. Willis' ineffectiveness allowed Galarraga to remain in the rotation all year and he capitalized opportunity. Galarraga works in the low 90s and has a solid slider. He posts a decent strikeout rate but has struggled with walks a bit in the minors. Last season he managed to cut back on the walks a bit and was in line to finish with very solid numbers before a rough September inflated his ERA a bit. Those struggles could be attributed to Galarraga wearing down after his first full season in the majors. Galarraga is guaranteed a rotation spot to open the year but he doesn’t look like a sure bet to replicate last year’s success again this season. He looks like he may settle in as a back of the rotation starter long-term in the majors.

2008

Galarraga posted decent numbers in the minors (152.1 innings, 145 hits, 58 walks and 135 K), earning him a callup in September. Of concern though is his mediocre walk rate and the poor job he does of keeping the ball on the ground. He'll be 26 years old when the season begins, and will likely compete for a rotation spot in the spring, but there's not a ton to like here.

2007

Galarraga was sidelined early in the year with an elbow injury, but returned to start nine games with Double-A Frisco. In those nine starts, he allowed 56 hits and 13 walks in 41 innings, but did manage to strike out 38. He'll need to show the ability to miss more bats as his advances up the chain if he wants to contribute in the majors.

2006

Galarraga, the son of former Expo great Andres Galarraga, broke through with an impressive campaign at High-A -- a performance good enough to get him included as one of the key components in the Alfonso Soriano trade. A good year at Double-A will have him mentioned in the same breath as John Danks, Thomas Diamond and the other Ranger young guns.
