RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Brothers continued to demonstrate why he has been touted as the Rockies' closer of the future, riding his mid-to-high-90s fastball to 11.0 K/9 while limiting opposing batters to a .251 average against. Like many of the team's relievers, Brothers had more difficulty at home (5.35 ERA) than on the road (2.23 ERA), but it is hard to quibble over Brothers allowing just five home runs total over 67.2 innings. While Brothers continues to have issues with walks, he is the hardest thrower in the team's bullpen and should become the top choice for save opportunities in the event that Rafael Betancourt gets injured or traded. Until that happens, he will likely serve as the Rockies' seventh-inning man, but do not count on him to luck into eight wins again this season with the rotation being given a longer leash during their outings.

2012

Brothers possesses a filthy high-90s fastball and hard slider combination that should eventually grant him an opportunity as a closer. The next step in his development will be improving his control, as the gaudy Triple-A (14.46 K/9IP) and big league (13.06) strikeout rates he showed last season were somewhat offset by his walk rate (4.82 BB/9IP at Triple-A, 4.43 with Colorado). Barring changes to the roster, Rafael Betancourt will open the season as the ninth-inning option for the Rockies, but Brothers could be waiting in the wings to take over should he falter. Just 24 years old, Brothers is an excellent target for keeper leagues considering that the 37-year-old Betancourt is in the final year of his contract.

2011

Brothers, a 2009 first-round pick, is a lefty with a compact delivery, a live fastball that can touch the upper-90s and a hard slider that sits in the mid-80s. He spent the first part of 2010 at High-A Modesto before moving on to Double-A Tulsa where he posted a 10.6 K/9IP and a 7.04 BB/9IP. His dominance is nothing new as he posted double-digit strikeout rates prior to reaching Double-A. He's not that far off from joining the Rockies' bullpen, but he'll need to address his control issues before that happens. If he does, closing games may not be that far off either.

2010

Brothers is a hard-throwing, left-handed pitcher with the ability to close games. As one of a number of left-handed pitching prospects for the Rockies, Brothers is still learning how to pitch. His arsenal includes a 97-98 mph fastball, a good slider and a changeup currently a work in progress. There is concern about his arm action and his ability to command his pitches, but his control is improving, and he misses a good number of bats. If his command does improve with coaching and experience, it is likely Brothers can be in the mix for the closer's role by 2011 or sooner.
