RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

There was no outlook written for CJ Riefenhauser.

2016

Most of Riefenhauserís 2015 was spent at Triple-A Durham, where he was strong in 34.2 innings, putting up a 2.86 ERA and 4.86 K/BB ratio. His time in the majors has been considerably less successful, where he possesses a 6.30 ERA across two seasons and 20 career innings. He possesses a two-pitch arsenal consisting of a sinking 90-mph fastball and sweeping slider. While he shows off great command in the minors for a left-hander, that left him whenever he landed in Tampa, where his walk rate is higher than his strikeout rate. He'll get a chance to rectify that after being traded to Baltimore, where he figures to push for a bullpen spot in Spring Training.

2015

Not too many 20th-round draft picks make it to the major leagues, but Riefenhauser did so late in 2014. He was impressive at Triple-A Durham, posting a 1.40 ERA over 39 outings and striking out nearly a batter an inning. The lefty seems destined for a role as a LOOGY in the teamís bullpen as he has held lefties to a .135 batting average throughout his minor league career, while righties have hit nearly double that. If Jeff Beliveauís injury delays his start to the season, Riefenhauserís odds of making the team will be more favorable. Even if he does break camp with the big club, there will be little reason to roster him in any format.
