2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Font missed the entire 2011 season due to Tommy John surgery, but his return to the mound in 2012 couldn't have gone much better. His composite line, spent largely at High-A Myrtle Beach, also included 10 relief appearances at Double-A Frisco, and was solid (98.1 innings, 67 hits, 138:44 K:BB). The control is an issue, but you can't ignore 29 strikeouts in 15 innings at Double-A Frisco. He switched between a starting and relief role, and two of his final three appearances of the season were three inning relief appearances, but he's expected to get his initial exposure to the major leagues as a reliever. With the departures of both Mike Adams and Koji Uehara via free agency, in addition to Alexi Ogando moving back to a starting role, there is plenty of opportunity for Font to emerge as a late-inning setup option to Joe Nathan when the season begins.
