2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2012

Ruffin was the “player to be named” in last season's Doug Fister trade with Tigers. The 2010 first-round pick is expected to have a bigger bullpen role this season after making 13 appearances for the Mariners last year, mostly in middle relief. In addition to a plus-curveball, Ruffin has excellent movement on his low-to-mid-90s fastball but would benefit from improved command within the zone. He could find himself in a setup role this season after the Mariners jettisoned some late-inning arms in the offseason.
