RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Jimmy Gobble.

2009

Gobble got the thorn in 2008, both literally and figuratively. He stepped on a cactus during spring training, and had a thorn stuck in his big toe for a week. Things weren’t much better once the regular season started, as he got annihilated by righties (.382 BAA, .517 OBP against, four home runs allowed, 9:19 K:BB in 68 at-bats compared to .200, .346, one and 18:3 in 65 against lefties). He wound up on the DL in July, but returned with a strong September -- no walks issued and no runs allowed in six innings. He should win a job in camp as a left-handed specialist at the very least.

2008

The days in which Gobble was viewed as a starter seem to be all but passed, and he has solidified himself as a late-inning reliever and left-handed specialist, and he allowed lefties to hit just .241 against him in 2007. He still has a great curveball, and his 26-year-old body should be able to handle the career-high 74 appearances last season. In fact, he's probably poised for a repeat performance, coming in the seventh or eighth inning and picking up holds.

2007

Gobble solidified his place on the roster by playing the swingman role to perfection, starting when injuries and ineffectiveness created an opening, or serving in middle and long relief when no starts were available. He had trouble with the long ball, but struck out nearly a batter per inning. At 25 and left-handed, Gobble is a decent commodity, but one who would probably be giddy if he repeats his 2006 numbers.

2006

Gobble didn't have a good year, but no day was worse than Aug. 6, when he allowed eight runs and seven hits over two innings against Oakland. Proving it was no fluke, he came out three days later and allowed four runs on two hits and two walks while recording one out against Cleveland. He had stretches of effectiveness, but Gobble's final line wasn't impressive. Since he was worthless as a reliever, the Royals made him a starter in September, and he was decent. On the plus side, he turned the corner on a 2004 statistical oddity (only 49 strikeouts in 149 innings), striking out 83 in 112 innings combined between Triple-A and the majors. Expect continued work as a Quadruple-A swingman.

2005

The amazing part about Gobble's 2004 season is he won nine games despite having a season high of five strikeouts in a game. The lefty's confidence wavered but his control never did, walking 2.61 batters per game. He'll need to find a way to get more batters to miss if he wants to return to the middle to bottom of the rotation. An improved defense behind him would also help.

2004

The Royals were adamant that they wouldn't rush Gobble, going so far as to say he wouldn't even get a September call-up in 2003. That all changed when injuries decimated the rotation and the pennant race was still on. Gobble responded, showing flashes in his nine starts. The Royals will take it easy on this youngster in hopes that he will grow to become a No. 1-type starter.

2003

Already considered a good prospect, the 21-year-old lefty cemented his status with a very good season in Double-A in 2002, striking out 52 and walking just 19 in almost 70 innings. His curve is the best of his three quality pitches and should have Kansas City eating him up by late 2003 if not earlier.
