RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Salas was acquired by the Angels as a secondary piece in the trade to acquire David Freese from the Cardinals in November of 2013, after he posted an ERA above 4.00 in two consecutive seasons with St. Louis. Initially expected to serve as depth, Salas immediately made an impact in the Halos' bullpen, notching a 3.38 ERA in 58.2 innings. For the first time since his breakout season in 2011, Salas combined a high strikeout rate (25.5%) with a low walk rate (5.9%). He may have also been aided by a return of some velocity, as his average fastball rose to 91.2 mph after being clocked at 90.4 in 2013. Heading into 2015, Salas looks primed to reprise his role in the middle innings, but may not be a good source of holds, as he collected just eight while notching five wins last season.

2014

Salas had another down year in 2013 and even found himself in Triple-A for part of the summer. Most of his advanced numbers do little to explain his season, as he displayed a solid walk rate (1.9 BB/9), and was mostly able to avoid the long ball, giving up just three. Perhaps the biggest cause for concern with Salas was diminished velocity on his fastball, as he lost a full mph from his previous season. Salas was traded to the Angels in the David Freese deal, and he will serve as bullpen depth again in 2014. He's unlikely to provide much value in most leagues, although being in a weaker bullpen with Anaheim offers a clearer path to saves than he had in St. Louis.

2013

After saving 24 games in 2011 and pitching well enough to earn a significant role in the bullpen last season, things didn't go so well for Salas in the early going. On July 1 his ERA stood at 6.04 and he'd already had a brief stint with Triple-A Memphis. Salas righted the ship in the second half, including a nice July/August run of 24.2 IP, 13 H, 26:6 K:BB, and a 1.46 ERA. So who is the real Fernando Salas? The one in 2011 and those two months of 2012, or the one who struggled the rest of the season? The answer will likely determine what his role is this year, but he should get the ball a lot regardless.

2012

Of all the closers the Cardinals tried out last year, Salas held the job the longest. Unfortunately for him, though, he didn't have the job at the end of the year, and he won't have it at the start of 2012 either. It certainly wasn't his overall numbers that got him the boot, but more likely the two blown saves in August combined with the emergence of Jason Motte. Still, with a 75:21 K:BB, 0.947 WHIP and 2.28 ERA, Salas, who closed for Triple-A Memphis in 2010, will be an important part of the St. Louis bullpen again this year.

2011

Salas was up and down so many times last season that it was hard to keep track of his whereabouts. He had a major league ERA of 1.66 as late as Sept. 8, but after giving up eight runs in his last nine innings of the season it was clear he ran out of gas. He showed some promise as the Triple-A closer, most notably in his 44:9 K:BB ratio in just 35.2 innings, but the 25-year-old was already in his second year in Memphis, and Triple-A closers don't necessarily profile to become major league closers. He'll be up and down again in 2011.

2009

In only his second year in the minors, the Mexican-born Salas showed phenomenal improvement for Double-A Springfield. The 100:16 K:BB ratio in 74 innings is not a misprint, but the 12 home runs given up shows he still has some work to do. He might need another year or two, but we could be hearing rumblings of Salas as the Cardinals closer by 2010.
