RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

LeBlanc functioned as a swing man for the Marlins in 2012 and actually notched a respectable 3.67 ERA and 1.31 WHIP in 68.2 innings pitched in the majors (nine starts, 16 relief appearances). The lefty posted similar numbers in 16 Triple-A starts (3.74 ERA and 1.13 WHIP) with much improved command ratios against the lesser competition. LeBlanc's arsenal comprises three flavors of high-80s heat (four-seam, two-seam and cutter) and a solid changeup that is complemented by a slow hooking curveball. Under contract through 2016, LeBlanc will get a look as a back-end starter in the Marlins' barren rotation and could be serviceable if he maintains the career-low 2.5 BB/9 he flashed last season.

2012

After spending the first six seasons of his career in the Padres organization, LeBlanc was shipped to Miami in exchange for catcher John Baker. His overall numbers are far from appealing to fantasy owners, and in 2011 he posted a 4.63 ERA and a reduced K/9IP of 5.76 with a career-low 1.82 K/BB. Looking at his home/road splits makes an even greater case against him -- 3.65 ERA with a 1.93 K:BB ratio at Petco vs. a 5.86 ERA and 1.69 K:BB ratio everywhere else. He's buried on the depth chart in Miami, and in 2012 will either find a spot in the bullpen doing mop-up duty or end up back in Triple-A.

2011

In his first full season as a starter, LeBlanc was useful to fantasy owners, until a disastrous August knocked him from the Padres' rotation. He was able to reduce his walk rate, while maintaining his strikeout rate, but a home run rate of 1.48 HR/9IP had a way of making it all for naught. Moving forward, if he can approach the 8.1 K/9IP strikeout rate he had in Triple-A, he'll be able to make some real headway. As is, he's fortunate that he pitches in PETCO as his long-ball woes would play much worse in another ballpark. LeBlanc might not begin the year in the rotation, following the Padres' acquisitions of Aaron Harang and Dustin Moseley in the offseason.

2010

The Padres are lousy with pitchers like LeBlanc, who rely on command, deception and not allowing home runs. The lefty bounced back from an off year in 2008 and made it back to the majors, filling in nicely at season's end. His upside is last year's line with 30 starts, and the downside is...pretty ugly. He's not someone to target in your draft.

2009

LeBlanc earned a late-season audition after a good year at Triple-A Portland, highlighted by an impressive 139:42 K:BB ratio in 138.2 innings. His ERA was a bit high at 5.32, largely the result of surrendering 21 homers. This carried over to his September tryout, as he served up seven gopher balls in only 21.1 big league innings. He also had an unimpressive 15:14 K:BB ratio. Even though this is a limited sample, LeBlanc will need a good spring to show he is indeed ready to help the Padres' staff. The key will be his home-run rate, as LeBlanc's minor league history suggests he will overcome his September control woes.

2008

LeBlanc asserted himself among San Diego's top prospects with an excellent 2007 split almost evenly between High-A and Double-A. He has strikeout stuff (145 in 149.1 innings) and excellent control (only 36 walks). The lefty is working towards a potential major league rotation spot in 2009, when he will be 24 years old.
