RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

In each of the last two seasons, Gregerson has slotted into the setup role in front of Huston Street in San Diego, posting a combined 8.9 K/9 across 138 innings in 150 appearances. Gregerson's arm isn't about to fall off following the ample usage, but his offseason trade to Oakland places him in an accomplished bullpen, with Jim Johnson, Ryan Cook, and Sean Doolittle all present at the back end. Thus, Gregerson may not pile up as many holds, let alone saves, but he should be able to uphold his terrific strikeout rate.

2013

In 2012, Gregerson got back to doing what he does best: missing bats at an elite level with his slider, while forcing those that do make contact to put the ball on the ground. What followed was a 2.39 ERA and another season among the top relief pitchers in the major leagues. He was able to pick up some saves, while closer Huston Street was out due to injury and will likely be called upon to do so again in 2013 as Street has never been a model of consistency when it comes to his health. No matter what role he finds himself in, expect Gregerson to excel and bring with him outstanding peripheral numbers.

2012

Although his strikeout rate took a serious nosedive last season (5.50 K/9IP down from 10.23 in 2010), he still has a career 3.18 K/BB ratio and that includes a slight increase in his walk rate last season. Perhaps the oblique injury he suffered in late June was a contributing factor. The team's confidence in Gregerson is high, so he should easily entrench himself as a top dog in the bullpen again this year with a solid spring. He should prove to be a valuable fantasy asset even if Huston Street stays healthy as the Padres' closer.

2011

Only two seasons into his major league career, Gregerson has established himself as one of the best setup men in the game. In 2010, he had an amazing 4.9 K/BB ratio with a 3.22 ERA, and 0.830 WHIP. A large reason for his success is a slider that batters simply can not hit. Should Heath Bell be traded, Gregerson is someone that would excel in the closer role. Toss in his fantastic skill set and he's one of a handful of middle relievers that fantasy owners should target on draft day.

2010

What's strange about Kevin Towers' firing is that his last year in San Diego was among his most productive. Take Gregerson, picked up in exchange for Khalil Greene from the Cardinals. Gregerson pounded the strike zone with his slider and fastball, walking just 22 men unintentionally. There's little reason to believe he can't do this again, and he's first in line for saves should Heath Bell be ineffective, injured or elsewhere. Good value bet for 2010.
