RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Chad Harville.
Tampa Bay picked up Harville off waivers in the offseason and will give him the chance to nail down a set-up role in the bullpen. His strikeout-to-walk ratio and WHIP rate both went south last year, so this may be his last chance to show he can keep a bullpen role of significance in the major leagues.
Harville was traded from Oakland to Houston in April 2004 and served as a middle reliever out of the Houston bullpen. Harville posted an unpleasant 4.75 ERA but his K/BB ratio improved to nearly 2/1, signs of possible future success. The set-up man role is up for the taking in the Houston bullpen, so Harville might be the long term option in that role.
Promising initial outings following an August promotion offered some hope for the former "Closer of the Future," but control problems quickly surfaced and Harville struggled down the stretch. He'll never be more than a middle-reliever until he can figure out how to throw quality strikes.
Long viewed as the A's closer of the future, enters spring training out of options and just 17 career major league innings under his belt. Pretty pedestrian season at Triple-A last season took some of the shine off his star. You'd be wise to look elsewhere for value in the Oakland bullpen behind Keith Foulke.
