RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Petricka was one of the team's top setup men for the season's first few months, and he took over the closer role in late June. The right-hander relies primarily on a sinking fastball that results in a ton of groundballs, but the rest of his pitches (changeup and slider) are generally just OK. His 67 appearances may have worn on him toward the end of the season, as he had a .351 BAA and 5.79 ERA over the final two months of the season before leaving his last start with arm soreness. He should enter the season in good position to retain a late-inning role in front of new closer David Robertson, but is not quite a lock until we get through spring training.

2014

Petricka has found new life in the White Sox's system as a reliever. He had been a once-promising starter in the organization's lower levels a few years ago, but his path to the majors became clearer when he became a reliever in 2013. His lack of control was less of an issue in shorter bursts, and he used a mid-90s fastball and plus changeup to post a 1.81 minor league ERA en route to a 16-appearance audition in Chicago. His 134 ERA+ over his 19.1 MLB innings should be good enough to put him in the discussion for a setup role out of camp.

2012

Petricka barreled through three minor league organizations in 2011, and he finished his first full season as a professional at High-A Winston-Salem. His K:BB tumbled to an average 46:26 in 67.2 High-A innings after an impressive 48:13 in 41.2 frames at Low-A Kannapolis, but he still fed his defense a high level of groundballs. Scouts like his mid-90s fastball, but his secondary pitches still need a bit of work. He likely profiles as a mid-rotation starter or bullpen guy, depending on the organization's needs come 2013 or 2014.
