RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Alex Yarbrough.
Yarbrough opened 2013 in High-A Inland Empire, and though he posted a decent .313/.341/.459 line in 615 plate appearances, his main skill seems to be hitting for average, as he improved his walk rate only slightly from 2012 (4.4%) while his strikeout rate (17.2%) saw a substantive increase. Combine all that with mediocre power (.146 ISO), and what emerges begins to look like a one-tool player, though his speed may be developing, as he stole 14 bases last season. Heading into 2014, Yarbrough is unlikely to see a level higher than Double-A Arkansas, but may be able to challenge for a bench role with the Angels late in the season.
