RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Freeman pitched well for the Cardinals in 2014, splitting time between Triple-A Memphis and St. Louis during the season's first couple months before becoming a permanent fixture in the bullpen for the Cardinals. He posted an excellent 2.61 ERA while striking out 35 in 38 innings and accruing two wins and 11 holds. His 1.39 WHIP and 3.92 xFIP indicates that his ERA was a bit lucky and he probably won't be so fortunate in 2015. Still, the Cardinals have struggled to a degree to produce reliable bullpen arms and if he can continue to pitch well the 27-year-old could stay in the St. Louis bullpen for the entire 2015 season. If he can rack up holds and miss a few more bats he could provide some sneaky fantasy value in deeper leagues.

2014

Freeman logged 12.1 innings late in the 2013 season and fared much better than his first time around in 2012, posting a solid 2.19 ERA in his limited role. Freeman's 4.63 xFIP should temper any expectations for a bigger breakout in 2014, but it's worth noting that his 16.0% strikeout rate was significantly lower than his minor league numbers. The latter suggests that he could develop into a serviceable bullpen arm. At 26, and with only 32.1 innings under his belt, 2014 will likely be a make-or-break season for him with the Cardinals.

2013

If you don't remember that Freeman pitched 24 games for the Cardinals last year, don't feel bad. Nearly every appearance was an inning or less, and he gave up 13 runs and 10 walks in just 20 innings. Still, the 25-year-old jumped a couple of levels in 2012 and struck out 27 batters in 30.1 Triple-A innings. He'll probably be up-and-down for St. Louis this year as one of the final options in the bullpen.
