RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Brody Colvin.
Colvin finished last season 6-10 with a 5.87 ERA and a 109:74 K:BB ratio in 138 innings between High-A Clearwater and Double-A Reading. He still has the talent that made him a top prospect in the Phillies' system a few years ago, but his inability to execute and command his pitches has caused him to fall off the prospect map. Given the struggles the past two seasons, it might not be long before the Phillies decide to convert Colvin to a reliever and hope to get something out of him in that role instead.
Colvin has seen his stock drop after a poor showing at High-A Clearwater last year. He missed time in April with a back injury and also tweaked his groin in July. Perhaps the injuries were to blame for the poor results. He still has a high ceiling but it appears he is further away from reaching it now than he was at the beginning of the 2011 season.
Colvin was selected by the Phillies in the seventh round of the 2009 draft. He slid to the Phillies because of sign-ability concerns over a commitment to play at LSU. After seeing very limited action in rookie ball in 2009, the Phillies opted to start Colvin out at Low-A Lakewood last season where he posted a 3.39 ERA and a 120:42 K:BB ratio in 138 innings. Colvin's fastball sits in the 92-94 mph range and he is showing improvement with his breaking ball. He and fellow prospect Jarred Cosart are major breakthrough candidates for 2011.
