RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2013

Sampson skipped High-A Lake Elsinore in the very hitter-friendly California League, in favor of Double-A San Antonio and the results were not what the Padres had hoped for. His strikeout rate went down, while his walk rate went up and what followed was a 5.00 ERA over 122.1 innings. Another disturbing trend is that his command has slipped each time he has moved up a level in the minors. It's likely that unless he can take strides to dramatically improve his command, he'll likely find himself on the path to becoming a reliever in the majors instead of a starter, a development that would greatly hurt his status as a prospect to fantasy owners. Don't be surprised if he begins 2013 with a return to San Antonio as he looks to iron out the aforementioned command issues.

2012

Sampson looked quite dominant in his first season in the Midwest League and at just 20 years old, there seems to be plenty more on the horizon. His control still needs a little bit of work (3.74 BB/9IP), but he's got a real live arm and great movement on his pitches. He posted a 10.91 K/9IP and 2.92 K/BB and should be an interesting prospect to watch as he works his way through the Padres' system. Look for Sampson to get a crack at High-A in the California League after his impressive full-season debut.
