RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Leon served as a starter for Triple-A Sacramento and had a very disappointing season, with an unsightly 4.97 ERA and an equally-ugly 1.52 WHIP. He was converted to a full-time starter before the 2013 season and it just has not gone well. After some solid work in the minors as a reliever, Leon has not been able to repeat that success as a starter. His walk rate jumped from 1.5 BB/9 in 2013 to 3.2 BB/9 last season, and he also allowed 10.6 H/9. On a positive note, his strikeout rate spiked from 6.1 K/9 in 2013 to 7.9 K/9 last year, but if he cannot find a way to limit baserunners, his chances of breaking into the rotation with the big club will slip away rapidly.

2014

Leon started his 2013 by famously starting the brawl between Mexico and Canada in the World Baseball Classic when he hit Rene Tosoni with a pitch. Leon was converted into a starter in 2013, making 24 starts across Double-A and Triple-A after primarily being used a reliever in five prior seasons in the A's farm system. Leon displayed excellent control as a starter (1.5 BB/9), but his strikeout rate dropped to 6.1 K/9 from 10.0 K/9 as a reliever in 2012. Leon will likely be one of the five starters in the A's Triple-A rotation to start the year.
