RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Steve Karsay.

2006

Relased by the Yankees, Karsay wound up back in the majors late in the year after fighting through injuries. Of course, he proceeded to get hit hard with Texas, so we're not high on his chances to win a spot in the Cleveland bullpen this spring.

2005

Calling Karsay injury-prone is like calling Kevin Brown competitive. He's got the stuff to be one of the top set-up men in the league, but the Yanks shouldn't feel comfortable relying on him to take on a regular seventh- or eighth-inning role. Karsay isn't much of a draft day consideration, but if he stays healthy and takes on a prominent role, he can be valuable as the last man on your staff.

2004

After undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his pitching shoulder, Karsay missed the entire 2003 campaign and his status for spring training is still uncertain. Should he be OK to pitch, he will likely be leaned on as one of the primary right-handed setup men but that is to be determined. With the money the Yankees spent on relief help this offseason, Karsay is no lock to be the "closer-in-waiting" as he was last season at this time. Tread carefully.

2003

Karsay pitched passably last season, posting a decent K/BB (65/30) and a mediocre K/IP (65/88) ratio for a setup man. Karsay had 12 saves when Mariano Rivera went down, and should Rivera get sidelined again, Karsay (along with newly signed Chris Hammond) would be first in line to replace him, assuming that Karsay has fully recovered from November back surgery.
