RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Brian Falkenborg.

2007

Falkenborg made only five appearances with the Cardinals in 2006 and otherwise continued haunting the minors as he has for nearly a decade. Now 29, it looks like he's never going to be more than a journeyman pitcher. He has good control -- in 58 innings between Memphis and St. Louis he struck out 58 and walked only 15 -- but the Cardinals have enough right-handed relievers that it's unlikely they will call on him much in 2007.

2006

Falkenborg got a cup of coffee in each of the past two seasons, but the former second-round pick's Triple-A numbers leave something to be desired with poor K/BB ratios. He may collect some filler innings again this season, but a guy wishing to stick with the club as a mop-up man has little fantasy value, even in NL-only leagues.

2004

Falkenborg is a righty that the Mariners will take a look at in spring training. There are plenty of better arms ahead of him, though. He worked in relief and looked strong after coming back from an oblique strain last year.
