RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Pestano entered the season as a popular closer-in-waiting target, but struggled when given the chance to close when Chris Perez hit the disabled list. The Indians eventually sent him back to Triple-A Columbus in an effort to get him back on track, but he didn't fare much better upon his return. He was a very effective setup man in each of the previous two seasons prior to last year's nightmare so a rebound does not seem to be out of the question. Pestano has been passed up by Cody Allen and Bryan Shaw in the pecking order for saves, however, and the Indians signed John Axford to begin the season as the team's closer.

2013

Pestano was not quite as dominant as the year before, but was still very effective (2.57 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, 9.8 K/9) in a setup role for closer Chris Perez. He figures to inherit the closer role if the Indians decide to shop Perez, but the Indians' closer reversed some downward trends en route to a career-high 39 saves last year. Keep him in mind as a potential closer-in-waiting, even if the Indians enter the season with Perez as their ninth-inning option.

2012

Pestano quietly emerged as Cleveland's top setup man to Chris Perez as the season wore on and would likely step into Perez's shoes in the event of an injury to the team's closer. He absolutely chewed up right-handed batters (.115/.218/.192 with 70 strikeouts in 147 plate appearances) and handled lefties well enough en route to a very fine season including a 12.19 K/9IP in 67 appearances out of the bullpen. Expect another fine season again and bump him up several notches in formats that count holds.

2011

Pestano earned a September callup after a dominant season at Triple-A (46.1 IP, 35 hits, 59:14 K:BB). His three-quarters delivery and mid-90s velocity gets groundballs by the bushel, but he'll need to beat out some established arms to earn a spot in the Cleveland bullpen.
