RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Raley made five starts for the Cubs last year and got shelled (8.14 ERA, 16:11 K:BB in 24.1 innings). His work at Double-A was passable before that, but at Triple-A not so much. He's left-handed, but throws his fastball in the high-80s, and at 24 he probably doesn't have a high major league ceiling assuming he even gets back there in 2013. Most likely, Raley will serve as organizational depth while trying to figure out hitters at Iowa again.
