RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Francis Beltran.

2006

Beltran missed 2005 due to Tommy John surgery, but given that he's never been able to turn his fastball into outs above Triple-A the Nationals likely weren't missing much. If he's fully recovered, he'll fight for a middle relief spot in the spring.

2005

You can find Beltran's picture in the dictionary next to 'fungible'. Too cliché? How about something more topical -- Beltran is to pitching what Adam Smith (D-WA) is to the House of Reps, a decent enough sort whose name reminds you of more famous people.

2004

After a decent Double-A campaign in 2002, Beltran started strong (1.65 ERA, 20/8 K/BB in his first 27 IP), but had some arm trouble (triceps tendinitis) and faltered down the stretch at Triple-A last season, mostly in relief. Beltran, a hard thrower who will turn 24 next summer, could make an impact in the Cubs bullpen as long as his arm is completely healthy.

2003

Beltran, 22, pitched well in relief at Double-A last season, allowing just 28 hits in 41 2/3 innings for 2.59 ERA and earning a brief call up to the Cubs last summer, where gave up 10 earned runs in just 12 innings. A big, hard thrower, Beltran still needs to refine his command – he had a good, but not great 43/19 K/BB ratio in Double-A – before he's ready to produce at the big league level.
