RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Just 21, Skaggs pitched at three levels last season while earning six starts with the D-Backs before getting shut down in late September when his velocity dipped. Not surprisingly, his arrival in the big leagues was accompanied by a decline in his strikeout rate (6.4 K/9), but Skaggs should have an arsenal capable of missing bats at a much higher clip as he makes the necessary adjustments. Assuming that he's healthy this spring, Skaggs should be in the mix for a place in the back of the rotation to begin the season as the D-Backs have an extra slot available during the first half of the season with Dan Hudson working his way back from Tommy John surgery.

2012

Skaggs celebrated his 20th birthday by earning a promotion to Double-A Mobile, where he maintained an excellent strikeout rate (11.49 K/9IP) and improved his control (2.36 BB/9IP) against advanced competition. Already boasting a strong three-pitch arsenal featuring a devastating curveball, Skaggs is knocking on the door for a big league promotion as one of the organization's four young aces. Like teammates Trevor Bauer and Patrick Corbin, Skaggs could finish the 2012 season as a regular member of the Arizona rotation if he continues to impress in the upper levels of the minors.

2011

Skaggs was dominating the Midwest League last season even prior to turning 19 in July, carrying an impressive 9.3 K/9IP and striking out nearly four times as many batters as he walked. With a very projectable 6-foot-4 frame, Skaggs is considered the marquee prospect in the return that the D-Backs received from the Angels in the Dan Haren trade. He'll cut his teeth at High-A to open this season with an opportunity to get a look at Double-A if he continues to pitch well. Keeper league owners should be sure to invest now for the long run, though it could take until late 2012 or even early 2013 before he gets his first taste of the big leagues.
