RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

It was a tale of two seasons for Coleman, who recorded a dreadful 7.48 ERA in the first half of 2014, but after spending some time at Triple-A Omaha, returned to post a 2.19 mark in the second. He doesn't have overpowering stuff, but mixes an upper-80s fastball with a quality slider, and surprisingly, was able to limit left-handed batters to a .629 OPS on the year. He'll be arbitration eligible for the first time prior to 2015, and provided he can build off the momentum he gained in the second half of last season, the right-hander should once again be a steady fixture in middle relief for the Royals. Considering the immense bullpen depth in Kansas City, he's unlikely to be considered for save opportunities anytime soon, which ultimately limits his value. He would probably need a change of scenery in order to pitch in higher-leverage situations.

2014

While Coleman spent another season being shuttled back and forth between Kansas City and Triple-A Omaha due to the large number of major league-caliber relievers on the roster, he showed some outstanding improvements in his game. While his K/9 may have dropped from 11.5 in 2012 to 9.7 last season, he dramatically improved his command and dropped his walk rate from an unsavory 12 percent to a much more palatable 5.5 percent. He also increased the use of his slider, forcing hitters to not only fish outside the zone, but to mash the ball into the dirt. The result was a doubling of his groundball rate, which helped raise his strand rate to a near-flawless 97.6 percent while suppressing his ERA to a career-best 0.61. Coleman's performance likely earned him a spot in the Royals bullpen in 2014, though he will likely still have to take part in the annual spring training competition. Should he prove himself then, he could be a helpful ratio stabilizer in deeper leagues.

2013

In 2012, the 26-year-old right-hander spent a good portion of the first half being shuttled back and forth between Kansas City and Triple-A Omaha, but stayed up for most of the second half and posted a 3.71 ERA over 51 innings by season's end. While he was able to maintain his double-digit K/9 in the big leagues, he also saw his walk rate rise and posted an unimpressive 14.5-percent HR/FB with a subpar 4.68 FIP, both of which were a step back from the year before. He'll compete for a spot in the Royals bullpen again in 2013, but with minimal promise for improvement, he is not exactly oozing with fantasy potential.

2012

Coleman finally made his big league debut in 2011 and the results were promising. He had 64 strikeouts and 26 walks with a 2.87 ERA over 59.2 innings. He was a bit lucky as the nine home runs he gave up only led to 11 runs. He'll need to reel in his home-run rate (1.36 HR/9IP) if he wants to factor into more late-game situations. As for his control, getting back to walking fewer than 3.0 BB/9IP, as he did in the minors, would serve him and the Royals well. Only 26 years old, Coleman's best days are ahead.

2011

Coleman hasn't had an ERA higher than 2.20 in two minor league seasons and seems poised to join the Royals bullpen in the near future. He's never pitched in a big-league game, but KC is thin in its setup corps for closer Joakim Soria and won't likely hesitate to see what the 24-year-old can produce.
