2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Buchanan was passed over by every team in the majors last winter when he was left available for selection in the Rule 5 draft. The Phillies lucked out, as Buchanan seized an opportunity when injuries struck and made 20 starts for a team with limited starting rotation depth. Buchanan does not have an overpowering fastball and instead relies on his sinker and cutter to generate groundballs. That approach leaves him prone to the occasional blow up, but as he showed last season, he can also be fairly effective. The Phillies will have at least a couple rotation spots open this spring and Buchanan will be a heavy favorite to earn a spot based on his performance last season.

2009

Drafted in 2009 by the Mets but did not sign.
