2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Diekman received an opportunity to join the Phillies' bullpen in June last season despite less-than-stellar numbers at Triple-A Lehigh Valley. His awkward delivery and mid-90s fastball allow him to generate lots of swings and misses, but he has struggled to command his pitches throughout his time in the minors. Something clicked for Diekman last summer, however, as his 3.8 BB/9 over 38.1 innings with the Phillies was the best of his career. He also had a pronounced platoon split, which may lead to him being used as a lefty specialist moving forward. Over 69 plate appearances last season, he held lefties to a .148 batting average and had a 23:6 K:BB ratio while righties hit .298 off of him.

2013

Diekman got his first taste of the majors last season, but showed he wasn't quite ready for the assignment. His strikeout rate remained excellent in the majors, but a 6.6 BB/9 was too much to overcome. The Phillies will continue to work with Diekman on honing his command. Diekman has the potential to be a lot more than just a lefty specialist if he can make the adjustment.

2012

Diekman, 25, earned a 40-man roster spot this winter after a dominant season at Double-A Reading last year. He struck out 83 batters in 65 innings, but also walked 44. The walks are a bit of a concern though the Phillies seem to be eying Diekman for a lefty specialist role given his .099 average allowed against left-handers last season. He'll likely get a chance to compete for a bullpen spot this spring, but our guess is he opens the year in Triple-A before seeing time in the Phillies' bullpen later in the year.
