RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Brandon Villafuerte.

2005

Just how long ago was Villafuerte the Padres' closer? He struggled with his control in his stint with the Diamondbacks. The team outrighted him and he opted for free agency. He was last seen in the Mexican winter league, so he's still trying to come back.

2004

The right-hander experienced the highs and lows of being a major league relief pitcher last season. After wining the de facto closer's role, he struggled, and eventually found himself in Triple-A Portland. He rebounded nicely to earn himself a September call-up but the reality is he doesn't have the control to assume an important bullpen role at the major league level. He doesn't possess the dominant stuff that forgives the amount of balls thrown, and a big league job in 2004 doesn't seem likely.

2003

Prior to 2000, Villafuerte looked like he might be a serviceable major league pitcher. Then he got traded to the Tigers. The next two seasons were a roller coaster ride of double-digit ERAs and six-inning major league stints. Then Villafuerte signed with the Padres. Like night and day, his career took an immediate upward swing as he posted an 8-4 record at AAA, then appeared in 31 games for the Friars, recording a tidy 1.41 ERA. Not bad for a 66th rounder.
