RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

There was no outlook written for Seth Maness.

2016

Maness further entrenched himself in the back-end of the Cardinals bullpen in 2015, pitching 63.1 innings and making 76 appearances (a career-high), while posting a 4.26 ERA and striking out 46 batters. He wasn't nearly as effective as in previous seasons but some advanced stats suggest that he was also a bit unlucky due to a .345 BABIP and a 69 percent LOB rate, both far higher than either of his previous two seasons. Maness picked up three saves and 20 holds on the season, making him a valuable relief arm in deeper leagues that count holds. He should return to a similar role in 2016 on a Cardinals team that should be very good again, meaning he'll be an excellent and likely cheap source of holds with a handful of saves sprinkled into the mix.

2015

After emerging as one of the Cardinals' best relief pitchers in 2013, Maness repeated that performance in 2014 as he was arguably the team's most consistent arm out of the bullpen. Maness doesn't miss a lot of bats but he doesn't necessarily try to, throwing his fastball only 15 percent of the time in his two years with the Cardinals, opting to throw his sinker (55%) and changeup (19.5%) more often while also mixing in the occasional slider and curveball. While strikeouts are nice, Maness does an excellent job keeping hitters off balance and inducing the groundball (61.5% for his career), and his career xFIP of 3.16 also points to him being the real deal as a quality bullpen arm. His fantasy value is limited, but he will accumulate some holds and a few saves and is always a deep sleeper for the closer job should it open up via injuries or poor performance.

2014

Maness was another talented young arm to emerge for the Cardinals in 2013, as the young righty threw 62 innings in relief while racking up 15 holds and a 5-2 record while posting a 2.32 ERA and a BB/9 under 2.0. Maness induced more double plays (16) than any other relief pitcher in baseball, excelling at getting the Cards out of jams. An extreme groundball pitcher, Maness should remain an effective option out of the bullpen for the Cardinals and could develop into a quality source of holds.
