RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Sterling Hitchcock.

2004

Hitchcock's career ERA is 4.77. He's been under 4.00 in exactly one season, posting a career-low 3.93 back in 1998. He's also made more than $30 million for that work. There's a Nobel Prize in economics waiting for the person who connects those sentences. Hitchcock will start the year in the Padres' rotation; any value he might have will depend on the new park and the outfield alignment.

2003

A strained groin and a sprained lower back cost Hitchcock much of the 2002 season, but that may have been a blessing for the Yankees considering how poorly he pitched when healthy. Given his ridiculous contract, he'll be on the roster next spring, but judging from his road splits during his only decent stretch of his career (in pitcher-friendly San Diego), Hitchcock isn't someone you want on your roster.
