RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

A former first-round pick, Withrow's career has stalled due to command issues and struggles against left-handed hitters. He's now spent three straight seasons at the Double-A level and in 445 minor league innings, Withrow has a 5.0 BB/9 to go with a 4.87 ERA. He does have some talent still, as evidenced by last year's 9.6 K/9 and given that he turns just 24 in April, there's still hope. Expect him to return to Double-A where it won't be surprising if he's converted to the bullpen full time.

2012

A former first-round pick, Withrow appears to have stalled in Double-A. Spending the past two seasons at that level, Withrow has posted ERAs of 5.97 and 4.20, BB/9IPs of 4.81 and 5.27, and K/9IPs of 8.36 and 9.13. The strikeouts give us hope that he'll put it all together at some point, and he's still just 22, but like more than one Dodger pitching prospect over the years, walks have been a huge issue. Withrow will start 2012 back in the high minors, but to take that "next step," his pitches need to find the strike zone with far more frequency.

2008

For the second consecutive year, the Dodgers tapped a Texas-area high school for their first pick and though Withrow doesn't have the upside of 2006 No. 7 overall pick Clayton Kershaw, they are still excited about his potential. Withrow is several years from the big leagues, but worth owning in keeper leagues with deep minor league rosters.
