RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
After suffering a scary head injury that cut his 2012 season short, Stratton came back strong in 2013, posting a 3.27 ERA in 132 innings for Low-A Augusta. The former first-round pick exhibited excellent strikeout numbers (8.4 K/9) while keeping his control in check (3.2 BB/9). Despite not pitching above the Low-A level, the 23-year-old Stratton will likely be on a fast track to the majors as his arsenal (fastball, slider, curveball, changeup) appears ready for the big leagues.
Stratton, the Giants' first-round pick in 2012 (20th overall), appeared in eight games while throwing 16.1 innings in Low-A until his season was cut short after a line drive to the head in late August. It is likely that he will begin 2013 in High-A, and there is a chance he could make it to San Francisco by 2014. Scouts have said Stratton does not have one dominant pitch, but he features a fastball between 91-95 mph along with a very good slider, improving curveball and fringe changeup.
