RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

The second-half productivity of rotation additions Kyle Hendricks and Tsuyoshi Wada prevented Rusin from getting any starts with the Cubs last season, as the left-hander instead stuck with Triple-A Iowa for nearly all of 2014. While there, he compiled a 4.31 ERA and a weak 6.0 K/9 rate over 146.1 innings, numbers that ultimately resulted in the Cubs dumping him from the 40-man roster. Though heís never been more than adequate at any level above Double-A, the Rockies saw enough in Rusin to scoop him up off the waiver wire. His inability to make batters whiff isnít as serious of a flaw at Coors Field, where generating groundballs is the more vital key to success, but it seems likely that the Rockies would prefer to keep him on hand as organizational starting depth in the minors. Heíll likely receive the call to the Rockies when injuries dictate a need for a spot starter or long reliever, roles in which the 28-year-old will offer minimal fantasy utility.

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.
