RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Kazuhiro Sasaki.

2004

Take Sasaki off your draft lists; he returned to Japan in the offseason to be closer to his family, and he then signed a two-year deal with Yokohama in February 2004.

2003

Sasaki may be the wild card for the entire Mariners' season. He blew eight saves last season and it was determined that the reason was because he had bone chips in his right elbow. He had surgery performed in early November and is expected to be ready for spring training. But let's remember his season wasn't a huge bust as he still had 37 saves, ranking him among the elite closers in the majors.
