RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

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.
