RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

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.
