RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Jennings spent the majority of the 2014 season with the major league club, ultimately posting a sparkling 1.34 ERA but with an unsightly 1.54  WHIP over 40.1 innings pitched with the Marlins. He benefited from an unsustainable 94.9% strand rate while dancing in and out of trouble with regularity. Jennings has solid strikeout ability, racking up nearly a strikeout per inning over the past two seasons, but continues to struggle with walks. The left-hander has yet to be truly tested in a late-inning role and Jennings seems unlikely to be tried there unless he can prove more consistent with his command.

2014

Jennings chipped in 40.2 relief innings out of the Marlins' bullpen in 2013 on his way to a 2-4 record with a 3.76 ERA. The righty did an excellent job of keeping the ball in the park, allowing just one homer run in 47 appearances, and while striking out nearly a batter per inning (8.4 K/9). Primarily viewed as a middle reliever, Jennings failed to find himself in too many high-leverage situations and collected just one hold during his sophomore season. While he'll likely be an important piece in the Miami bullpen once again, it is difficult to expect much of an impact on the box score while throwing in middle relief.

2013

Jennings posted a strong 1.89 ERA in 19.0 innings pitched for the Marlins in 2012, but struggled with wildness, walking 11 batters during that sample. The lefty hurler, who tosses a fastball in the low-90s complemented by a slider and the occasional changeup, ended his first trip around the big leagues with a poor 1.53 WHIP. Prior to his callup, Jennings had made notable progress in limiting the walks, issuing just 16 free passes over 51.2 innings pitched (2.8 BB/9) in Triple-A after walking 4.5 BB/9 in 2011 and the Marlins remain hopeful that he'll eventually display improved control with more experience in the majors.
