RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Jenkins has reached 30 innings with the Jays in each of the last three seasons, serving as an extra arm in the bullpen and gobbling up innings while relying on a combination of good control and a pitch-to-contact approach. With a career 48.9% groundball rate in the big leagues, Jenkins has scraped together a 3.25 ERA, though his xFIP (4.32) suggests the potential for volatility given that he strikes out batters at a mere 12.1% clip (4.6 K/9). The last three seasons, Jenkins has been vulnerable against left-handed hitters, who have managed to hit him at a .273/.333/.451 clip. Even with his ability to keep the ball on the ground, Jenkins has shown better splits away from Rogers Centre (.241/.287/.368) than at home (.273/.325/.457).

2014

Jenkins is a low-upside pitching prospect with a consistent minor league history of low strikeout and walk rates. He turned in a 2.70 ERA over 33.1 innings with the Blue Jays last season, despite striking out just 15 batters. Putting his success in a small sample size aside, Jenkins will likely open 2014 at Triple-A Buffalo. He figures to see some major league work before the end of the season, but isn't viewed as anything more than a stopgap.

2013

Called up in early August, Jenkins started three games and earned his first major league victory in 2012. The underlying numbers do not look great as he walked 11 while striking out only 16 over 30 innings. The 20th overall draft pick in 2009 has seen his strikeout rate decline the past few seasons to just 4.5 K/9 at Double-A last season, which limits his upside. He may need to rebuild his former prospect status in the minors all season with the Blue Jays boosting their starting rotation with several acquisitions in the offseason.

2012

Jenkins began to show the polish that many were expecting after being drafted 20th overall in 2009, posting a solid season at Double-A New Hampshire (1.196 WHIP, 4.13 ERA, 6.6 K/9IP in 16 starts) after earning a quick promotion from High-A Dunedin. He doesn't look like anything more than an mid-rotation, innings-eater at this point in his career though.

2011

Jenkins, the 20th overall pick in the 2009 draft, struggled in his first season as a pro between stops at Low-A Lansing and High-A Dunedin (141.2 IP, 3.94 ERA, 1.348 WHIP). Of particular concern was his debut at Dunedin where he struggled to miss bats in a league that favors pitchers. Jenkins drew praise for his polish and command of three pitches coming out of the draft and was expected to handle the transition to pro ball much easier than the stats show. He could develop into a mid-rotation innings eater but will need to improve off his rookie campaign.

2010

Jenkins was selected 20th overall in the 2009 draft and for good reason. The 6-foot-4 right-hander throws in the low-90s with a nice slider and changeup. He earned the Atlantic Sun Conference Player of the Year honors (8-1, 2.54 ERA) by allowing 80 hits and 15 walks in 92 innings with 98 strikeouts. Scouts are hopeful that he can make a pretty smooth transition given his command and poise and he bears watching in his first season as a professional.
