RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Doug Brocail.

2010

It was a lost season for Brocail -- he spent a good portion of 2009 on and off the disabled list after declining season-ending surgery in July. He is just one year removed from a string of a couple successful seasons, so he still may have the stuff to be a viable late-inning option in front of an established closer. He figures to sign a non-guaranteed minor league contract with an invitation to spring training with another team at some point before February.

2008

Brocail is the kind of veteran middle reliever that all major league teams need. He went 5-1 with a 3.05 ERA and 1.174 WHIP in 2007. His 43 strikeouts in 76.2 innings aren't much to write home about, so from a fantasy standpoint, he's much less valuable to you than he is to any big league club.

2007

Brocail overcame two March angioplasties to throw 28.1 IP for the Padres in 2006. When he returned, however, he pitched in middle relief with limited success. Then his season was cut short by a torn right hamstring. He is expected to be fully recovered by spring training, but he's on the downside of his career. Still, he'll try to win a set-up role again this spring.

2006

Brocail failed to build on a strong second half in 2004 after a lengthy absence from the majors. A move to a middle relief role with the Padres in Petco Park can only help revive his career.

2005

Brocail had a nice season in middle-to-late relief for Texas in 2004, particularly as the season wore on (2.18 ERA after the All-Star break, with 3 ER after August 1). He'll be back in 2005, having signed a one-year deal.
