RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Texas' ill-advised three-year contract extension following Feldman's fluky 2009 finally ran out, and he became a free agent when the Rangers declined a $9.25 million option for 2013. The Cubs opted to give Feldman a one-year deal in November, while his xFIP the last two seasons (3.72, 3.87) suggest that he's pitched better than the results might otherwise indicate. With a career-high 7.0 K/9 and improved 2.3 BB/9, Feldman could prove to be undervalued if moving to the National League brings another uptick in his strikeout rate.

2012

Feldman spent the early part of the season recovering from offseason microfracture surgery on his troublesome right knee. He surfaced for a few token relief appearances and two spot starts as the season waned, and his chances of making any sort of impact in the Texas rotation in 2012 have been eliminated with the emergence of Derek Holland, Matt Harrison and Alexi Ogando (not to mention Neftali Feliz's conversion to starter). Texas is now left with a $4 million middle reliever who doesn't miss bats often enough to be tasked with high-leverage innings.

2011

Thud. Texas decided to anoint him as the Opening Day starter and sign him to a three-year contract extension in early April on the heels of his 17-win "breakout" season the year prior. A cursory glance of his peripherals screamed "fluke" louder than a stadium of vuvuzelas, and Texas now faces the problem of an expensive and ineffective long reliever. Cliff Lee's departure via free agency could open up a rotation spot for Feldman again, but it will be out of necessity and not want.

2010

Feldman was a surprise 17-game winner for Texas on the heels of a season where he posted a 5.29 ERA and a poor 74:56 K:BB ratio over 151.1 innings the year prior. His peripherals in his breakout season were better but still pretty poor (5.36 K/9IP, 1.74 K/BB). He benefited a great deal from Texas' improved infield defense particularly at shortstop with Elvis Andrus, but his post-break numbers (4.34 ERA, 1.382 WHIP) were a step back from his early-season numbers. He pitched well over his head last season, though he should remain as a serviceable innings eater as long as Andrus remains healthy. Don't even think about bidding with expectations of a repeat performance.

2009

Feldman was asked to make 25 starts in the majors, which should tell you everything you need to know about Texas' pitching in 2008. He fanned just 74 batters and walked 56 in 151.1 innings, though he seemed to be one of manager Ron Washington's favorites when dolling out the praise. We all have our vices, whether it's chocolate, alcohol or the like. Washington's seemed to be for Feldman and pitchers of his ilk.

2008

Feldman shuttled back and forth between the minors and majors in 2007, and pitched poorly when called upon. How bad? How about 44 hits and 32 walks in 39 innings?

2007

Feldman spent 2006 shuttling back and forth between Triple-A Okahoma City and the majors, striking out 30 batters in 41.1 inning in the majors. He's expected to play a similar role in 2007.

2006

Texas rewarded Feldman with a brief call-up after a decent year at Double-A Frisco. He keeps the ball on the ground, and effectively pounds the strike zone, but won't have a large role in the Texas bullpen in 2006.
