RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

A hard-throwing right-hander who had Tommy John surgery last March, Vizcaino came over in the Paul Mahlom trade. Before he got hurt, his average fastball was 96 mph, and he consistently missed bats at High-A and Double-A with pretty good command. Assuming he's close to 100 percent for spring training - a possibility at press time - Vizcaino should have a shot at one of the team's two vacant rotation spots. Instant success for a 22-year-old coming off major surgery is a lot to ask, but there's certainly upside here should he prove healthy and win a job.

2012

Vizcaino is one of Atlanta's top pitching prospects and could contend for a job in the major league bullpen or rotation this spring. He began last season at High-A Lynchburg and jumped all the way to the Atlanta bullpen by August. He had a 3.22 ERA and 92:28 K:BB ratio in 90 innings combined between High-A and Double-A. He then was called up to Triple-A Gwinnett but moved to the bullpen to reduce his workload. He then was a surprise addition to the Atlanta bullpen for the final six weeks where he held his own as a 20 year old in the majors with a 4.67 ERA and 17 strikeouts in 17.1 innings. He did walk 4.6 BB/9IP in the majors, but otherwise has had great control in his minor league career. With a 95 mph fastball and a very good curveball, it's just a matter of when he'll be an impact pitcher with the Braves. He'll likely begin the season at Triple-A, but it may only be a few months before he's in the Atlanta rotation to stay.

2011

Vizcaino was traded to the Braves in the Javier Vazquez deal and quickly climbed to become one of Atlanta's top prospects. After going 9-4 with a 2.39 ERA and 68:9 K:BB ratio in 14 starts with Low-A Rome, it looked like he was on the fast track to the majors. However, he was shut down in June after just three starts at High-A with a partial tear in a ligament in his right elbow. He returned in late August to make two appearances and isn't expected to need offseason surgery. Vizcaino has a 90-95 mph fastball and a very good curveball. If he shows his elbow is healthy and has a strong start at High-A, he could be with the Braves in September.

2010

Signed out of the Dominican in 2007, Vizcaino has a 90-95 MPH fastball and a very good curve. His command within the strike zone needs some work, and there are concerns about his durability, but his ceiling is very high. He was traded to the Braves in the Javier Vazquez deal and could quickly become one of Atlanta's top prospects.
