RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

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.
