RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Blackburn was a 16th-round pick by the Giants in the 2011 draft, and put together a breakout year in his first full professional season with a 2.54 ERA (1.91 FIP) in 131.1 innings. He has shown spectacular control with a walk rate of 1.2 BB/9, and dominated hitters in Low-A with a strikeout rate of 9.8 K/9. Blackburn features a low-90s fastball that can top out at 95 mph, an above-average curveball and strong changeup, and should start 2013 in High-A. The right-hander has the ceiling of a strong No. 3 starter, but will not have an impact on the major league level until late 2014 at the earliest.
