RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2012

Rondon's development path hit another bump in the road after returning from Tommy Jon surgery for a pair of relief appearances in September when he fractured his pitching elbow in November pitching in winter ball, sidelining him for another five-to-seven months. The form he flashed as a 21-year-old at Double-A and Triple-A back in 2009 seems like forever ago, and now it's unclear just how much he will have left on the operating table. The once promising prospect needs to get back and stay healthy before resuming what was once a very bright future.

2010

Rondon dominated at Double-A Akron (1.056 WHIP, 9.1 K/9IP in 72 innings) to start the season and earned himself a midseason promotion to Triple-A Columbus. He didn't fare quite as well but still put up some noteworthy numbers (74.1 innings, 83 hits, 64:13 K:BB) as a 21-year-old. He pounds the strike zone with low-90s heat and a developing slider and changeup. The Indians briefly experimented with him in a relief role at Double-A, but quickly moved him back into a starting role and he should spend most of the season in the rotation at Triple-A. The Indians have a host of middling arms competing for rotation spots this spring, but Rondon could kick in the door with a strong spring. Expect some bumpy spots in the road initially if that comes to pass.
