RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

After failing as a fifth starter, Stammen has reinvented himself as a setup man. He has not seen a big increase in fastball velocity despite the increased 2012 strikeout rate, so his success might not be sustainable, and he is way down the depth chart when it comes to saves anyway so don't put too much fantasy stock in his turnaround.

2012

Stammen had a lackluster season in Triple-A as a starter last year, posting a 4.75 ERA. He was hurt by a .327 BABIP and 69.3 percent strand rate, and pitched in seven games for the Nationals out of the bullpen. His skills translate to the bullpen because of his lack of a dominant pitch and his 90.5 mph fastball. Additionally, his ability to register groundballs and throw strikes could land him on the 25-man roster by the end of spring training.

2011

Stammen added a slider in 2010, which got him a few more strikeouts but did nothing to help his other numbers. He'll get a look in the bullpen, but when he gets hit Stammen gets hit hard and until that problem is solved it doesn't matter what his role is.

2010

Stammen was the prototypical Nationals pitcher last season, keeping his fringy stuff down in the strike zone just enough to have some degree of success in the majors, if a 5.11 ERA can be called 'success'. To be fair his FIP was only 4.68, but when you live as close to the edge as Stammen, it's hard to see that gap as merely a product of bad luck. Jordan Zimmermann's Tommy John surgery likely keeps him in the rotation picture for one more year, but the organization's pitching depth is improving rapidly and a guy like Stammen will be the first one to get the ax when the kids are ready.
