RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Rondon was a mediocre reliever as a Rule 5 draftee in 2013, but a variety of circumstances led to him closing games for the Cubs last year and…he wasn't bad. He showed the outstanding control he had earlier in his minor league career, using a 63:15 K:BB ratio to earn his way to 29 saves. Also, with only two home runs given up in 63.1 innings, Rondon limited the damage that can often come when the wind is blowing out in Wrigley. Rondon looks like he'll deservedly head into the 2015 season as the closer, though he could face competition from Jason Motte if the former Cardinal can return to his pre-Tommy John form with his new club.

2014

As a 2012 Rule 5 draftee, Rondon got to spend the entire season on the Cubs' active roster, but a 4.77 ERA, 1.41 WHIP, and 44:25 K:BB ratio indicate he's not ready for prime time. Expect the 26-year-old right-hander to spend some time in the minors in 2013.

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.
