Though Mike Moustakas's batting average remains a concern, he still merits a higher ownership rate in mixed leagues due to his power, writes RotoWire's Andrew Martinez.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2012

Tomlin was surprisingly effective for the Indians after opening the season as the team's fifth starter, winning 12 games to go along with a 4.25 ERA and a sparkling 1.077 WHIP thanks to a league-leading 1.14 BB/9IP. His excellent control helped him survive a low strikeout rate (4.84 K/9IP) and his long-ball tendencies (24 allowed in his 26 starts) are the only real blemishes. Tomlin experienced elbow soreness that cut his season short in September, but is expected to be ready for the start of spring training. He'll start the season as the team's No. 3 or No. 4 starter, but it will take a lot of things to break right if he's going to have a repeat performance.

2011

Tomlin made a dozen serviceable starts for the Indians after a midseason callup but continued to struggle with the long ball, allowing 10 homers in just 73 innings. It's been an issue in his minor league career as well, and his low strikeout rate (5.3 K/9IP) means a lot of balls are being put in play against him. He'll battle for a rotation spot again this spring.
