RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Toussaint was taken with the 16th pick in the 2014 draft, and in addition to having a 70-grade name, he also has about as much upside as any pitcher in the draft class. The 18-year-old righty was deployed for 28.2 innings in rookie ball, and demonstrated his ability to miss bats with a potentially elite fastball/curveball combo (32 strikeouts), but he also reminded everyone just how much refining there is left to do (1.95 WHIP on 38 hits and 18 walks). If he is assigned to full-season ball as an 18-year-old, it will be understandable if his ERA and WHIP don't match the hype surrounding his arm right away. In time, this is a pitcher who will be able to embarrass hitters in the low levels of the minors. Don't get too aggressive in dynasty leagues, as Toussaint probably won't make the big leagues until 2018, and a lot can happen between now and then. But in the meantime, there is a lot to dream on here.
