RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Acquired in a minor offseason trade from the Marlins, Badenhop proved to be a valuable addition to the Rays' bullpen. He used his sinking pitches to induce groundballs at a 1.17 GB/FB rate. He was quite the workhorse in 2012, appearing in 66 games and finishing with a career-low ERA of 3.03. The Brewers acquired Badenhop in December, and the 6-foot-5 righty will likely retain a similar role with his new team in 2013, working as part of the bridge to closer John Axford.

2012

Badenhop once again bounced back and forth between a major league long-relief job with the Marlins and Triple-A in 2011. Thanks to his extreme groundball tendencies, Badenhop can mitigate the effects of free passes (3.39 BB/9IP), while providing a viable late-inning option when a double play is needed. Dealt cross-state to the Rays, he and his sinker could find things tougher going in the AL East, so don't expect him to be much more than a depth arm for the Tampa Bay bullpen.

2011

A rough May aside, Badenhop had another solid season in the Marlins' middle relief corps. The key number for him is 2.05, his GB/FB ratio. As long as his sinker his sinking he can be effective, and the departure of Dan Uggla's mediocre defense at second base could even be a slight boon for him.

2010

Badenhop rode his sinker to some major league success last season, bumping up his K/9IP rate and reducing his BB/9IP rate while still posting a solid G/F ratio of 1.93. He could get a shot at a rotation job in the spring, but more likely the Marlins will bring him back to soak up innings as a long reliever. And if Dan Uggla's cast-iron glove at second base gets upgraded behind him, so much the better for his numbers.

2009

The Marlins pressed Badenhop and his sinker into service out of desperation in the first half of the season, but his inability to control it led to some ugly outings before a bulging disc in his neck put him out of his misery. With Florida's rotation now healthier and the next wave of prospects hitting the big leagues, Badenhop's window to prove himself as a big league starter has probably closed, but a potential groundball machine like him will always get another shot in the bullpen.
