RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
De Los Santos pitched well as a starter in the lower minor league ranks for the Rangers, but he struggled at the Double-A level each of the last two seasons and the club finally placed him on waivers after trying him as a reliever. The Brewers snapped him up, largely due to the 504 strikeouts De Los Santos has racked up over 332.2 career minor league innings. De Los Santos should be considered a reliever at this point, but he possesses a great changeup that helps him get the number of strikeouts he does. He is still just 23, so there is time for him to develop into a late-inning reliever if he can harness his stuff better.
De Los Santos struggled at Double-A Frisco to start the season, skipping High-A altogether after a 2010 season where he fanned 112 batters in 70.1 innings at two lower levels. While he managed 38 strikeouts in 28 innings at Double-A, they were accompanied by 17 walks and 27 hits and he was quickly sent down to High-A Myrtle Beach. His numbers there were much better, including 97 strikeouts against just 28 walks in 63.2 innings. His Arizona Fall League campaign showed some promise as well: 40 strikeout and three homers allowed over 30.1 innings in an offense-fueled environment, but also contained 15 walks. He faces the same control problems many hard-throwers at the lower levels do, and how he's able to pitch at Frisco in 2012 will go a long way in determining if Texas has anything to get excited about here. Continued struggles at Double-A would likely result in a shift to the bullpen, given his strikeout potential.
