2014 Fantasy Baseball Outlook

The Rockies’ patience with Escalona finally expired in 2013, as his issues with the long ball (12.7% HR/FB) made him entirely too unreliable, particularly against lefties. It was actually an improveme...

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Escalona split his season between Triple-A and the majors, ultimately failing to build upon his promising 2011 debut with the Rockies. The main culprit in those unfulfilled expectations was a fall in Escalona's strand rate from 96 to 62 percent, resulting in an ugly 6.04 ERA with the Rockies. Still, there were some positives to glean from Escalona's second season. Most notably, Escalona's fastball speed rose almost two full miles per hour, undoubtedly aiding an improvement in his K/9 rate from 4.9 to 8.5. If Escalona can maintain his typically good control while seeing a decrease in a 17.2 percent HR/FB rate, he could stick in the Rockies' bullpen for the entirety of the season, though likely not in a role of much consequence.

2012

Escalona parlayed a 96 percent strand rate into a tidy 1.75 ERA in his big league debut despite a pedestrian 4.91 K/9IP out of the Colorado bullpen. That good fortune is even more difficult to believe when you consider that he's an extreme flyball pitcher. Nevertheless, Escalona was a strikeout-per-inning reliever at most of his minor league stops including Triple-A Colorado Springs in 2010 and 2011. While we expect the strikeout rate to improve in Year 2, the ERA should spike accordingly and Escalona may be trapped in a fringe middle-relief role bouncing between Colorado Springs and Denver this season.
