RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Overton made his professional debut in 2014 after undergoing Tommy John surgery in August of 2013. A second-round pick in 2013 out of the University of Oklahoma, Overton made 13 starts between rookie ball and Low-A and fared quite well. The A's were very careful with his innings and he only threw 37 frames over his 12 starts last season. In those 37 innings, Overton was dominant, striking out 53 batters with an ERA of 1.95.The A's will look to build up Overton's arm strength in 2015, likely having him begin the year at High-A Stockton. With a healthy season, Overton has the potential to skyrocket up prospect lists, as he offers a plus breaking ball and a very good changeup to complement his low-90s fastball, with the polish and command necessary to pound the strike zone.
