RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Varvaro will likely be an option for a spot in the back of the Braves' bullpen in 2013. He has played 30 innings in the majors over the last two seasons with very mixed results: In 2011, he posted a 2.63 ERA while in 2012 his ERA ballooned to 5.40. His true talent is probably closer to a 4.00 ERA reliever. He has excellent strikeout numbers, but a very poor walk rate. If the walks come down he could be dominant. That hasn’t happened yet in six professional seasons, though, and likely will never do so.

2012

Varvaro had a strong season at Triple-A Gwinnett with a 2.90 ERA and 10.5 K/9 IP. He held his own in the majors, including an extended trial in September, with a 2.40 ERA and 8.6 K/9IP. However, Varvaro walks too many batters to get overly excited (5.3 BB/9IP at Triple-A). He'll compete for a bullpen role this spring, but may struggle to find a high-profile role given Atlanta's deep pitching staff.

2010

Varvaro was promoted to Double-A West Tennessee early in the 2009 season, posting a 2.82 ERA in 36 relief appearances with .163 BAA. He gave up way too many walks, though -- 44 in 54.1 innings – as he continues to work his way back from 2006 Tommy John surgery. His control looked much better in the Arizona Fall League where he walked only three of 55 batters faced. Varvaro, who tallied a healthy 10.4 K/9IP last season, has an above-average curveball and an above-average low-to-mid-90s fastball. He needs more refining and definitely needs to get those walks under control.
