RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Jason Berken.

2012

Berken fell hard in 2011 after a solid year of relief pitching in 2010. His ERA dropped from 3.03 to 5.36 as he lost his grip on the strike zone (4.02 BB/9IP) and allowed home run after home run (1.91 HR/9IP). Berken will need to get the ball on the ground to regain his 2010 success - he only induced 40 percent groundballs in 2011 after 47 percent in 2010. Look for him to work in middle relief for the Orioles again this season.

2011

The Orioles converted Berken into a reliever in 2010 and he really seemed to catch on. In fact, Berken may have been the most valuable pitcher on the staff in the first half as he racked up a 1.95 ERA in 32 games before the All-Star break. Shortly after the break, his shoulder became a bother and he had to be shut down early. Look for Berken to jump back into long relief, but his shoulder may not be conditioned properly for his new role.

2010

Berken got his chance in 2009, but he didn't run with it. Opponents hit .327 off him and he just doesn't have what it takes to get big league hitters out. The only way you'll see Berken in the Orioles' rotation is if Baltimore gets hit hard by injuries.
