RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Rheal Cormier.
Cormier gave up 22 baserunners, plus three homers, in the 14 innings he pitched after coming over in a midseason trade from the Phillies. For that, the Reds had to pay the low, low price of guaranteeing his 2007 option and granting a club option for 2008. While his ERA with the Phillies was low, his 13:13 K:BB portended ill fortunes.
Cormier was by and large ineffective in 2005, plagued by the home-run ball, injuries and big innings. The Phillies demoted him from his set-up role during the year and likely won't give it back without a big rebound.
The soft-tossing veteran lefty had another good year in 2004 and his career is coming in for a smooth landing after a rocky takeoff. Cormier briefly considered retirement before re-signing for two more years; he is a decent roster endgame.
Cormier was arguably the Phils' best reliever in 2003, with an 8-0 mark and a 1.70 ERA. Opposing batters hit only .182 against him. He and Tim Worrell will be the Phillies' top set-up men in 2004.
Cormier will be around in 2003 because his contract is guaranteed. Shoulder tendinitis finished his season in mid-September after a season that saw his ERA never dip below 5.00.
