RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2013

After posting a lights-out 34:5 K:BB in 22.1 minor league innings, Tolleson got the call to the big club in June and quickly found things to be far more challenging. In 37.2 innings with the Dodgers, Tolleson recorded a 4.30 ERA with a 39:20 K:BB in 37.2 innings. He did have a 3.00 ERA and 10 strikeouts in his last nine innings, but Tolleson will need to overcome the walks to be an effective big league reliever. He has the stuff and the minor league numbers to suggest "future closer", but given the competition, it seems likely he'll open 2013 in Triple-A.

2012

Kenley Jansen, Javy Guerra, Shawn Tolleson. In an order yet to be determined, that could very well be the Dodgers' late-inning relief corps for the next few years. Tolleson had a huge 2011 between three minor league levels, posting a combined 1.17 ERA and 105:18 K:BB in just 69 innings. He'll likely open 2012 in Triple-A barring a lights-out spring, but the talent is clearly there to make an impact at some point this season.
