RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Rosenberg got his first taste of the majors last year as the Phillies gave many of their younger arms a chance to help stabilize a shaky pen. Rosenberg didn't really help the team with bullpen stability, but he did show a few signs of why the Phillies like him. He has a mid-90s fastball that he complements with a slider and change-up. His strikeout rate remained very good in his transition to the majors, but his control fell apart. Perhaps he was overthrowing as his BB/9IP had been much better in the minors. The Phillies will likely give Rosenberg a chance to earn a bullpen job this spring, but he'll need to show improved control to earn a job.

2012

Rosenberg went 5-7 with a 4.28 ERA and a 103:38 K:BB ratio in 109.1 innings at Double-A Reading last season. Rosenberg has good stuff but he is also already 26-years-old and has yet to hit Triple-A. He'll compete for a bullpen job this spring, but figures to open the year at Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

2010

Rosenberg, a 13th-round draft pick in 2008, throws a fastball in the mid-90s and a slider he is developing as a strikeout pitch. He spent the majority of last season ad Single-A Lakewood, where he struck out 65 batters and walked just 10, before moving up to Double-A. The Phillies are expected to start him off at Double-A this season and with a strong season he could find himself competing for a bullpen job next spring.
