RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The Marlins made the investment in the 6-foot-5 high-school fireballer with the second overall selection of the 2014 draft after he racked up 126 strikeouts with an 0.35 ERA in 60.1 innings as a senior. He struggled in his late-summer introduction to professional ball, giving up 22 hits and 11 earned runs in 22 innings with the Marlins’ rookie league team. He struggled with command in his eight games, walking 13 batters, but also added 18 strikeouts over that span. Kolek can pump it up to triple digits with regularity and adds a 12-to-6 curveball, slider, and changeup to his power arsenal. Kolek is likely headed for Low-A to begin the 2015 season, but figures to rise rapidly through a Miami system that has proven to be aggressive in promoting elite-level young talent in recent seasons.
