RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

A converted infielder, Tuivailala found success as a flamethrower out of the bullpen, pitching well across three different levels of the Cardinals' system in 2014 before getting a September callup. Tuivailala only recorded three outs across two appearances for the Cardinals, but posted a 3.15 ERA and 1.25 WHIP in the minors in 2014, while striking out an impressive 97 batters in 60 innings. Entering 2015 as a 22-year-old, Tuivailala seems destined to head back to Triple-A for more seasoning at the start of the year, but injuries or poor pitching could open a spot for him if he keeps pitching well.
