RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Chris Balcom-Miller.
Balcom-Miller earned an early promotion to Double-A Portland, where the hitters proved to be a bit harder to get out. His sinking fastball is his best offering, but he struggled to command it and the advanced hitters had no problem laying off. He'll remain in the Sea Dogs' rotation and hope to build off last year's experience against the more polished hitters of the Eastern League. Without the three-pitch repertoire, Balcom-Miller may be headed to life as a reliever.
Balcom-Miller continued to live off his good control in Low-A ball, but without an overpowering fastball, he needs to stay down in the zone and keep producing ground balls. As long as he keeps the fastball down, he'll be fine at High-A Salem in 2011, but he'll need to develop a changeup if he wants to be effective at the higher levels. His breaking stuff is average with potential for better.
Balcom-Miller doesn't have an overpowering fastball (88-92mph), but he's managed to fool enough hitters in Low-A to keep his K-rates up. He mixes in a low-80s slider and change that have potential to be above-average pitches. With good command and control of the fastball, Balcom-Miller doesn't walk many batters.
