RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Jeff Austin.
Austin is the owner of perhaps the two worst consecutive starts in major league history, at the very least in the last generation. Less than a month after those two starts, Austin had shoulder surgery, cementing his status as a true Reds' pitching prospect. Don't expect to see Austin back in the majors until 2005, if ever again.
The former first-round draftee started the season on the major-league roster, but it was all down hill after that. Bottomed out as a potential starter in the minors and behind Jeremy Hill, Ryan Bukvich and Mike MacDougal for the Royals closer job, the 26-year-old righty will have to be satisfied with any major-league work in 2003.
