RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

April surgery to remove a bone chip from his elbow cost Storen the first half of the season, and when he finally got back on the mound Tyler Clippard had the Nationals' closer job locked down so saves were in short supply. Storen had regained his spot by the end of the year though, and it looked like he was a reliable closer once again heading into 2013, but that was before the Nats surprisingly signed Rafael Soriano. His decreased strikeout rate in 2012 seems primarily due to a reluctance to throw his slider after the surgery, but he still posted great numbers only using his breaking pitch a quarter of the time rather than a third, so even if that reluctance turns into a long-term change in approach, Storen's ability should not take much of a hit. But with Soriano signed, his role is in a state of flux.

2012

Storen pitched well in his first season as a full-time closer by improving his control and inducing more groundballs in 2011. He improved his first pitch strike percentage from 57 to 66 percent (eighth best among relievers), and he was fourth among relievers in shutdown appearances. Storen’s ERA did benefit from a .246 BABIP and 81.2 percent strand rate, but expect a similar ERA in 2012 since his HR/FB ratio will likely decrease. He features a 95-mph fastball and slider (84 mph) and should continue to generate 8.5-9.0 K/9IP as the Nats closer.

2011

Storen might forever be known as the Nationals' "other" 2009 first rounder, but he did just fine on his own, riding his mid-90s fastball and slider to a solid 52:22 K:BB ratio in 55.1 big league innings. Although he's the club's closer of the future and was used in the role at the end of the season after the Matt Capps trade, Storen might not be handed the job right out of the gate in 2011. Tyler Clippard, especially, looms as the biggest threat to his save chances in the short term, but unless he falls flat Storen should get enough ninth-inning duty to deliver double-digit saves at least.

2010

Lost in the Strasburg hoopla was the fact that the Nationals had two first-round picks, and Storen looked like an astute pickup in his pro debut, posting an eye-popping 37:2 K:BB ratio in 24.2 A-ball innings before tiring at the end of the season at Double-A. The Nationals have enough bullpen options that they don't need to rush him, but like his fellow first rounder, Storen's talent may set its own timetable in 2010. He's the team's closer of the future, but the future may come very quickly.
