RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Carson Sands.
The Cubs selected Sands with the 109th pick in 2014, and the 20-year-old lefty is already plenty polished. His fastball sits at 90-92 mph, and he's able to mix in a changeup without a noticeable drop in arm speed. With a clean delivery and a good feel for pitching, Sands may develop into a steady back-end starter, with the potential for a bit more growth if he's able to refine his inconsistent breaking ball as he advances as a pro. In 76.1 innings at the low levels of the minors, he has a 3.42 ERA, but those numbers were skewed by one disastrous outing last year. He'll probably start the year with High-A Myrtle Beach and advance quickly, but his 61:28 K:BB in the minors indicates he still has a bit of work to do.
