RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Josh Fogg.

2010

Fogg was pulled from Cincinnati's trash heap at the end of 2008, and despite dabbling in the minors, he actually put together a decent season, his best since his rookie year. The wheels started to fall off in the closing months of the season, but Fogg brought a 1.93 ERA into August, and held opposing hitters under the Mendoza line for the entire year. The peripheral numbers pass the smell test, but a repeat is probably too tall an order to fill. He filed for free agency and will test the open market, however, Colorado is a good fit for him and the club will likely pursue re-signing him.

2008

Fogg doesn't throw hard and doesn’t have a lot of movement. He relies on strong control and pitches to contact. His 2007 numbers were almost identical to 2006. He went 10-9 with a 4.94 ERA and a .293 BAA. He battled a tired shoulder towards the end of the year but did not miss any time. He is a free agent going into the offseason and will likely fill a spot at the back end of some team's rotation, but don't get too excited regardless of where Fogg lands, because he doesn't strike anyone out and doesn’t pitch deep into games.

2007

Serviceable is probably the nicest way to describe Fogg. He's an innings-eater who can be counted on for durability and ERAs near 5.00. He provides nothing in the way of strikeouts (mediocre career 4.8 strikeouts per nine innings), but the Rockies tendered a contract to him in December, making it likely he'll be the team's No. 5 starter, at least until some of their minor league pitchers are ready.

2006

Fogg went 6-10 for the Bucs in 2005 before being pulled from the starting rotation in September. He's an innings-eater, but not a difference-maker. Prior to last season, Fogg won 10 games in each of the last three years. He fell apart in 2005, finishing with a career-high 5.05 ERA in 169 1/3 innings. A control pitcher, Fogg walked just 53 batters but was wild within the strike zone. He's demonstrated an ability to be a serviceable pitcher in the past, but a change of scenery may be the best move for both Fogg and the Pirates.

2005

Fogg began the season 0-4 with a 9.00 ERA in his first five starts, and there was talk of yanking him from the rotation. He went into the All-Star break with a 6-7 record and a 5.97 ERA, but rebounded to go 5-3 with a 3.32 ERA over his final 16 starts. Another plus is that he gave up 17 homers, five fewer than in 2003 and 11 less than 2002. All that should be enough to keep him in the Bucs rotation once again, where he will remain an option for those in NL-only leagues looking for someone with job security in their league’s bargain bin.

2004

Fogg, who is a combined 22-21 over the past two years isn't the worst $1 pitcher in NL-only leagues, but that's about as fired up as we can get about a guy who gives up too many homers and whose ERA last year was 5.26 in 26 starts. Truth be told, he hasn't pitched all that well since the first half of his rookie season in 2002. With his ordinary stuff many scouts feel he might be better suited to middle relief, but unless a slew of young arms take over this year, he'll probably stay in the rotation.

2003

Fogg, who projected as a reliever at the time of his trade to Pittsburgh, stayed in the rotation all year and finished with decent numbers, comparable to those of Kip Wells. He was mediocre after a strong April, though, and had a big break in his record after 45 pitches. The Pirates need starters more than they do relievers, so Fogg will probably stay in the rotation until he hurts himself or gives up enough runs to get himself sent to the pen. Short-term, he's not a good bet. Long-term, he should be a good reliever.
