RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Cal Eldred.

2006

Eldred announced his retirement from baseball in November.

2005

Health and the long ball are Eldred's enemies but he continues to show flashes of brilliance as a formerly retired starter turned middle reliever. A rough first half of 2004 in which he posted a 5.28 ERA and allowed eight of his 11 home runs was followed with a streak of 17 2/3 innings with only one earned run allowed. He walked just 11 batters, his best walks-per-nine-innings-pitched ratio since he went 11-2 with a 1.79 ERA for Milwaukee. He gets a lot of movement on his low-90s fastball, but needs it to move a little more out of the way to remain effective.

2004

He had more value in 2003 than anyone could have hoped, and goes into 2004 as alternate closer No. 1 in case Jason Isringhausen has more problems. There's precious little reason to think he can do better than he did last year, and a fair chance that he implodes. Kiko Calero, Jimmy Journell and maybe even Rhett Parrott are better gambles, if you have to have a Redbird reliever.
