RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

The No. 36 pick in the 2013 draft, Blair climbed two full levels during the 2014 season, finishing his campaign at Double-A Mobile. Like fellow Mobile righty Braden Shipley, Blair’s repertoire is highlighted by a plus fastball/changeup combo. Over 154.1 innings, he posted a 171:51 K:BB ratio, making him a player to watch in the Diamondbacks’ system. Blair’s 4.35 ERA at High-A Visalia can be largely ignored, as he was pitching in the California League, a rough environment for any pitcher. His peripheral numbers suggest he was much better than that. He also probably wasn’t as good as his 1.94 ERA over 46.1 innings at Double-A, as he was stranding a whopping 87.3% of baserunners. Blair should return to Mobile for the start of 2015, but look for him to be promoted aggressively if he picks up where he left off in 2014, with the potential to join the D-Backs’ rotation in the dog days of summer.
