RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2014

Called up early in the season as a long reliever, Clemens gave up 13 home runs in 46.2 innings before the Astros sent him back to the minors in late July. The rookie right-hander returned to a starting role at Triple-A Oklahoma City, where he was stretched out until the Astros recalled him one month later to join their six-man rotation. The 26-year-old drew five starts, lowering his ERA almost a full point (from 6.36 to 5.40) in the process, but he was mostly unspectacular and finished the season with pretty weak peripherals (6.0 K/9, 3.2 BB/9) overall. If Clemens can remedy his 2.0 HR/9 rate and get it back down to the 0.9 HR/9 level that he carried in the minors, he has a much better chance of keeping a role with the Astros this season.

2013

Clemens was given serious consideration for a roster spot during spring training, but ultimately found himself back in the minors, where he struggled during his first extended look at Triple-A. He throws a fastball in mid-90s, but it is the development of his curveball and slider that will dictate his success in the majors. The September callup never came for the unheralded 2008 seventh-round pick, but that should be corrected this year as the Astros attempt to sort out what they have in the upper levels of their system.

2012

The unheralded 2008 seventh-round pick has an arsenal good enough to get out hitters in the minor leagues, his one start in Triple-A notwithstanding. The ERA (3.81) wasn't bad, but Clemens' 3.91 BB/9IP mark leaves a lot to be desired, sticking him with a subpar 1.359 WHIP. It's possible a true breakout campaign is still in his future, but for now he's looking like a back-of-the-rotation type. In 2012, he will continue to hone is craft in Triple-A with an eye toward a late-season callup.
