RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Three seasons after getting his first taste of the closer role, Storen finally regained his ninth-inning duties down the stretch in 2014 after Rafael Soriano fell apart. The young right-hander didn't disappoint, converting all 10 of his save chances in September while posting an exceptional 1.12 ERA and 0.98 WHIP on the season. While those rate stats aren't sustainable, he does seem poised for a successful 2015. Storen's K/9 rate dropped last year, but thanks to mechanical tweaks and increased usage of his changeup instead of his slider as a contrast to his 92-95 mph fastball, he was able to produce more groundballs and post a career-best 0.32 HR/9. Storen is far from a stable commodity after a bumpy ride through the first few seasons of his career. However, as long as he's able to keep attacking the bottom of the zone, he should be an effective closer for the Nationals.

2014

Storen seemed to have trouble putting his 2012 postseason meltdown behind him, and the Rafael Soriano signing last offseason was one blow too many to his confidence. He struggled badly in a setup role, eventually getting demoted to Triple-A to try and right the ship, and while he pitched better after being called back up, a 15:6 K:BB ratio in 19.1 innings doesn't exactly indicate that he made it all the way back. Storen could still wind up back in the closer picture, especially if Soriano's fastball continues to lose its juice, but his future looks a lot more uncertain than it used to.

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. Storenís 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.
