RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Janssen quietly had a very good season in 2011, posting a career high in ERA (2.26) and WHIP (1.10) but wasn't noticed by most fantasy owners until becoming the fill-in closer in 2012. For the second straight season, Janssen improved his WHIP (0.86) and his K/BB (6.09), now sitting at elite levels. Although Sergio Santos is expected to return to the mix during spring training, Janssen may have done enough to keep the ninth-inning role to begin the season in his absence.

2012

Janssen was sidelined by a forearm strain in June but came back firing bullets, posting a 2.26 ERA and a 1.096 WHIP for the season in 55 games out of the bullpen. The command and control issues he had when coming up as a starter have all but vanished in his days as a reliever (2.3 BB/9IP, 3.79 K/BB last season) and he allowed just two homers in 55.2 innings last year. The Jays traded for Sergio Santos after they lead the American League in blown saves last season, so look for Janssen to slot in as a setup man again this time around.

2011

The Blue Jays finally gave up on Janssen as a starting pitcher, and he responded well in his first full season out of the bullpen. He's not close to regular save chances and isn't dominant enough to be a staff filler to help fantasy teams in AL-only formats, but he'll be back in a middle-relief role with Toronto.

2010

Janssen returned to the majors in 2009 after missing all of 2008 with a torn labrum, but he hit the DL with shoulder inflammation in June. He returned later in the season in a relief role and that would appear to be his role going forward. Even when healthy, Janssen has never been a big strikeout guy, although he did post an 8.4 K/9IP in 14 innings as a reliever last season. He'll need to prove he's healthy before the Jays decide what to do with him.

2009

Janssen's season was short circuited when a shoulder injury in March required surgery to repair a torn labrum. Toronto is going to have some holes in the rotation to fill and Janssen will head into spring training with a goal of returning to a starting role. He'll need to miss a few more bats if he wants to survive pitching in the AL East, but his first priority is getting back to full health.

2008

Janssen managed some tidy numbers (2.35 ERA, 1.197 WHIP) despite a rather lackluster 39:20 K:BB in 72.2 innings. Those poor peripherals don't result in solid seasons too often, and pitchers coming off such seasons make poor repeat performance candidates.

2007

Janssen got an audition in the Toronto rotation due to a litany of injuries, but struggled in his 17 starts. A poor 44 strikeouts in 94 innings didn't help. There doesn't figure to be a spot in the Toronto rotation to begin the year when the dust settles.

2006

A 2004 fourth-rounder out of UCLA, Janssen has progressed apace, finishing the year at Double-A New Hampshire. He posted solid peripherals there, and should reach Triple-A Syracuse by midseason.
