RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Jim Mecir.
Anyone who can allow one earned run in three months, covering 21.2 IP, can obviously still pitch, but the knees and legs have a lot of wear and tear on them. Still the Marlins decided to take a chance on him this winter, so he should have a job in middle relief.
Knee problems continue to be a problem for Mecir, and they have to be considered chronic at this point. He has some end-game roto value if he could ever stay healthy, posting solid WHIP and ERA numbers. Unfortunately, Haley's Comet figures to appear again in the year 2062 before that will happen.
Expected to miss the first two months of the season following surgery on his left knee. His Screwball of Death ™ gets lefties out by the truckload. He's had chronic right knee/lower leg problems, in large part due to one of his legs being shorter than the other, so a stint or two on the DL is always a given. Has always made a solid end-game snag, though the injury clouds that issue somewhat.
