RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

There was no outlook written for Chang-Yong Lim.

2014

Once upon a time, Lim was considered one of the best pitchers in Japan, but injuries have derailed his once-promising career. When the Cubs signed him in late 2012, it was expected that his recovery from Tommy John surgery would keep him out until 2014, but the 37-year-old breezed through the minors and had a brief cup of coffee in the bigs in September. He's not getting any younger, and was non-tendered by the Cubs in December. Wherever he lands, he'll strike out a batter or two, but it's unlikely that he'll see many save opportunities.
