RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Jimmy Journell.

2005

Shoulder problems began in August 2003 and the Cardinals tried to work through it with cortisone shots and rest. It was thought that he could avoid surgery but he pitched in just four Triple-A games in 2004 before having surgery to repair a torn labrum in his pitching shoulder. After rising through the ranks as a starter, Journell was converted to relief, possibly to take pressure off of the shoulder. It will take some time before a future can be determined for the once prized prospect with two major-league pitches (fastball, slider).

2004

The lesson: don't get crazy when a college pitcher owns the Carolina League at 23. Journell may yet carve out a career as a reliever--and the opportunity is there in St. Louis--but that's a far cry from where he was two years ago. If he makes the roster, he's worth taking a flyer on.

2003

The top prospect in the Cardinals shockingly shallow minor-league organization, Journell pitched well in 66 2/3 innings of Double-A, striking of 66, walking 18 and allowing 50 hits. He didn?t fare so well at Triple-A, however, allowing 18 walks and 38 hits in just 36 2/3 innings while striking out 32. Journell's mid-90s fastball and hard-breaking slider are undoubtedly big-league quality pitches and considering that his Double-A stint provides a larger sample size, we think Journell has a chance to make an impact at the back end of the Cardinals rotation sometime this season. Shoulder stiffness sidelined him last July, but Journell should be healthy in time for spring training.
