RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for John Foster.

2007

Foster missed the 2006 season following Tommy John surgery on his left elbow. He'll likely miss most of next season as well.

2006

Foster was used as a lefty specialist for the Braves last year before hurting his elbow late in the season. Foster did strike out nearly a batter per inning, but he'll have a hard time winning anything but a lefty specialist role again this season.

2004

Foster is a lefty middle reliever who may get called up at some point in 2004. He pitched 20 innings for the Brewers in 2003 with a 4.05 ERA.

2003

Foster struggled in his first trip to the majors and then had problems with his control in Triple-A. A strong spring or first half at Triple-A could put him back in the Milwaukee bullpen.
