RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Abad spent his entire season in the majors in 2014 and responded with an excellent campaign in relief for the A's, compiling a 1.57 ERA over 57.1 innings. He excelled when he was asked to come in with men on base, not allowing an inherited runner to score until late August, and he ended the season having allowed only 13% of his inherited runners to score. Abad's lack of a strong platoon split, especially as a lefty, adds to his value as he fared well against righties (.475 OPS) and lefties (.527 OPS) in 2014. He figures to be one of the primary left-handed setup men in the A's bullpen in 2015.

2014

Abad put up decent overall numbers in the Nationals bullpen in 2013, but he wasn't particularly effective as a LOOGY (.790 OPS vs. lefties, .619 vs. righties) and got dealt to the A's in the offseason. He'll likely fill a similar role in Oakland.

2011

Abad got some big league exposure as a left-handed arm out of the bullpen, finding his way into 22 games in 2010. He showed good strikeout numbers in the low minors, but has seen his strikeout rate steadily decline as he has moved up the ladder. He's got a shot to break camp with the team, but will likely find himself ironing out the kinks in the minors to start the season.
