RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

There was no outlook written for Cesar Valdez.

2011

Valdez made his big league debut with the D-Backs last season, logging his 20 innings over nine appearances including a pair of starts. Long term, Valdez appears to be better suited for relief work as his fastball velocity is still stuck in the high-80s and his secondary offerings don't generate strikeouts either. On the positive side, he's able to generate plenty of outs on the ground and has shown improvement his second season at previous levels. The Pirates will attempt to mold his skill set into something reliable during spring training after he was sent to Pittsburgh for left-handed starter Zach Duke.

2010

Valdez made 18 starts at Triple-A Reno before getting shut down with a case of dead arm in July. He resurfaced in the Arizona Fall League, but had poor results as a reliever there with a 10.50 ERA in nine appearances and his fastball velocity was still hovering in the 85-87 mph range, so there could still be an underlying injury that is limiting his effectiveness.. The biggest issues for Valdez are home runs and left-handed hitters, while the answer may be a permanent shift into a relief role. Depending on his health and the outcome of the team's battle for bullpen jobs during spring training, he may have to return to Reno and try to right the ship there.

2009

Valdez made 15 starts at High-A Visalia before getting promoted to Double-A Mobile. He's actually improved his strikeout rate consistently at each of his three minor league stops, while maintaining good command in the process (combined 140:39 K:BB ratio, 160.1 innings pitched in 2008) and doing an excellent job keeping the ball in the yard, surrending just seven home runs last season. Featuring a low-90s fastball with some movement, a good changeup and a breaking ball he commands on both sides of the strike zone, Valdez is more effective because of his command and simply understanding how to pitch than because of his arsenal. The Arizona system isn't as deep now as it was even a year ago, so we wouldn't be surprised to see Valdez spend a significant portion of 2009 trying his hand in the Pacific Coast League at Triple-A Tucson.
