RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

There was no outlook written for Josh Lueke.

2014

Lueke went up and down but ended up pitching in 19 games with the Rays in 2013. His season was really defined by his performance with Triple-A Durham. Over 40 appearances, he went 3-1 with a 0.63 ERA and 17 saves. He averaged an impressive 12.9 K/9 and had a 0.98 WHIP on the year. He has a tendency to rack up strikeouts out of the bullpen with a big fastball, nice slider, and a splitter. Lueke is a flyball pitcher, which may contribute to some of his transition issues to the major leagues. With his strong track record in the minors, he should compete for a bullpen spot in middle relief for the Rays.

2012

Lueke was traded in November to the Rays where he'll bolster a strong bullpen from a middle-relief role. Lueke made his major-league debut last season out of spring training with a trip to Triple-A sandwiched around two stints with Mariners. His overall numbers appear skewed thanks to a handful of of disasters. Lueke allowed 22 earned runs last season, but 18 came in five games. He had a 1.29 ERA in his remaining 20 appearances. The 6-foot-5 fireballer pitches in the mid-90s with a good slider and splitter. Lueke appears to have a bright future if he can harness his stuff, but his character was tarnished when he was charged with rape and sodomy in 2009 (he plead no contest to a lesser charge), which probably made it easier for the Mariners to move him.
