RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

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.
