2014 Braves Team Preview: Live By The Sword

The Braves ran away with the NL East crown in 2013, but a free-swinging offense led to an early exit in the postseason. Can the same power-hitting mentality take them back to the playoffs again in 2014?

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

After a breakthrough season in 2011, Carpenter struggled last year with a 6.07 ERA as he walked too many batters and was later traded to Toronto. Since Carpenter throws in the mid-90s and still had a good strikeout rate (8.6 K/9), he's a decent bounceback candidate if he can limit the free passes. However, he landed with the Braves in the offseason and will have a hard time winning a role in Atlanta's deep bullpen this spring. He may just add depth at Triple-A.

2012

Carpenter posted his best season in relief yet, including a lights-out stretch in Triple-A where he went 18.2 innings without allowing an earned run. His solid strikeout rate will be a fantasy asset in deeper leagues, even if he doesn't find his way into the closer role. Carpenter is a nice sleeper heading into 2012: the 26-year-old averages nearly 94 mph with his fastball and should have plenty of chances to grab one of the many openings in the Astros' 2012 bullpen. Even though Brett Myers has been moved into the bullpen to open the year as the Astros' closer, Carpenter may be the next in line for saves in Houston if Myers suffers an injury or ends up getting traded this season.
