RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

The Reds traded for Hoover at the start of the season in a moment of panic after losing Ryan Madson, Nick Masset and Bill Bray to injuries to the start of the season, giving up their one left-handed power bat off the bench in Juan Francisco. Hoover acquitted himself well, both at the major league level and at Triple-A Louisville when the Reds needed to make room in the bullpen when Bray returned. But so far the team hasn't been willing to use him in high-leverage situations, which is why they traded for Jonathan Broxton at the trade deadline and re-signed him this offseason. Hoover looks like he could be a good reliever, though his high fly ball rate could be dangerous in Cincinnati.

2012

Hoover has been one of Atlanta's better pitching prospects for a few years, but gets lost in the shuffle in such a pitching-rich system. However, he moved to the bullpen last season, which may hurt his fantasy value. He has the stuff to dominate as a reliever with a plus slider that resulted in more than a strikeout per inning overall last year. He did start two games at Triple-A, so watch to see how he's developed next season. He could have a role in the Atlanta bullpen early in 2012 and still factor into the rotation at some point.

2011

Hoover may get lost in a deep crop of Atlanta pitching talent, but with a low-to-mid-90s fastball and three above average pitches, he could emerge as one of the best. He was 14-7 with a 3.29 ERA and 152:50 K:BB ratio in 153.1 innings between High-A and Double-A. He did walk 15 batters in 20.2 innings at Double-A, but showed great control in the lower minors. He could be knocking on the door of the major leagues at some point next season.
