2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2013

Layne never showed an ability to control his pitches while in the minor leagues, which makes what he did in 26 games in the majors, walking just three of the 68 batters he faced in 2012, all the more remarkable. Moreover, he was able to strike out nearly 37 percent of the batters he faced, a level of success he never even so much as sniffed, while he was in the minors. With changes to his arm slot, Layne was able to deceive hitters and miss bats like never before. It's likely that he ends up as a lefty specialist in the Padres' bullpen, but he has some upside if he can continue to master the art of deception with his delivery.
