2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Though a combined 3.56 ERA between Triple-A Iowa and the Cubs may indicate that Rusin has some potential in the majors, look at that strikeout rate. Five strikeouts per nine innings isn't going to get it done, and his low BABIP and high strand rate have more to do with his ERA than any special Rusinesque powers. He started 13 games for the Cubs last year, and if he manages to make it into the rotation in 2014, it's doubtful he'll have a sub-4.00 ERA again.

2013

After an undistinguished stint in the high minors, Rusin, like several other Cubs pitchers who were nowhere near ready, got seven starts in the majors and predictably got shelled. The lefty was able to induce groundballs, but his 88 mph fastball and solid but unspectacular command likely ticket him for Triple-A in 2013.
