RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Jeff Nelson.

2006

Nelson pitched only once in September last season after showing the Mariners what seemingly everyone else already knew: he was washed up. Nelson's ERA was nearly four, he walked 22 in 36 2/3 innings and his WHIP was 1.47. Not exactly the stuff of a quality set-up man. He might hang on somewhere, but it won't be in Seattle, and wherever he goes, he'll still be getting by on reputation rather than performance.

2005

Myriad injuries limited Nelson to 17.7 IP in 2004 and it's been since 2001 now since he's been a dominant reliever. There's no reason to suspect his downward trend won't continue wherever he signs. He won't be back in Texas, that's for sure.

2004

Nelson, who was looking for a multiyear deal, was not offered arbitration so the Yankees can't negotiate with him until May 1. This means he is not earmarked for a spot in the newly revamped bullpen and could signal the end of his NY days. The signings of right-handed relievers Tom Gordon and Paul Quantrill made Nelson expendable. Although great at times, Nelson was erratic in 2003 (6 blown saves) and posted a mundane 3.74 ERA and 1.36 WHIP.

2003

Nelson missed some time last season and pitched in only 41 games, but he is a good 1-2, lefty-righty punch with Arthur Rhodes. He may be good for a handful of saves, unless Kaz Sasaki gets hurt, in which he'll be a tri-closer with Rhodes and Shigetoshi Hasegawa. Nelson also averages more than a strikeout an inning, which puts him above fellow righty Hasegawa. A decent reliever to have if you carry a deep pitching staff.
