RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Josh Wall.
After allowing 14 earned runs in just seven innings pitched with the Dodgers in 2013, Wall became a piece in the trade to bring Marlins right-hander Ricky Nolasco to Los Angeles. He posted a solid 3.27 ERA in 22 innings at Triple-A New Orleans, but was placed on waivers and subsequently claimed by the Angels in early October. With the amount of uncertainty that surrounds the Angels' bullpen this offseason, it's likely that Wall will get a chance to pitch for the Halos in 2014, but aside from an ability to limit home runs (0.7 HR/9 in 774 innings in the minor leagues), Wall simply doesn't possess any skill set that will blow you away. He is, however, a young man with a big frame, so it's possible he will gain some velocity on his fastball going forward.
Converted to the bullpen, Wall (a former second-round pick) saw his career turn around in 2011. He made it to the big leagues last year after notching 28 saves for Triple-A Albuquerque with a solid 52:20 K:BB in 53.2 innings. Wall allowed three runs in 5.2 innings with the Dodgers, and may get a shot to win a bullpen job this spring. It seems unlikely that he'll see any save opportunities this year, however.
