RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

There was no outlook written for Wilmer Font.

2014

Font fully transitioned to a relief role in 2013, making 26 appearances at Double-A Frisco and 16 appearances at Triple-A Round Rock. On the whole, he fanned 71 batters in 52 innings, but he also walked 34. Control has always been an issue for Font, and it figures to limit his effectiveness once he reaches the majors. His upside is a middle-to-late-inning reliever, but his control issues will keep him out of ninth-inning mix despite some solid strikeout numbers.

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.
