RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Mike Bynum.
The lefty has drawn comparisons to former Padre Steve Carlton since the team made him a first-round supplemental pick in 1999. The comparison is apt because of an unhittable, monster slider from the left side, but he also has a low 90's fastball, and a quality change-up to accompany both. Unfortunately, he's been unable to control the wide sweep on the slider, and can be both dominating and flat-out wild in the same inning. The lack of control can sometimes make him batting practice fodder as he'll get behind, then groove a couple. The team has contributed to his schizophrenia by being undecided about whether his future lies in the pen or as a starter. He's likely best suited to a longer role and scouting reports have stated that an adjustment to his motion could help the control and provide a couple of additional miles to his fastball. He'll be 26 before the season begins and needs to show some improvement quickly.
Bynum had impressed at nearly every step of his pro career leading up to 2002. But he was rather hittable in the bigs last season and displayed none of the trademark command he showed at almost every minor league stop prior to his Padres’ debut (128BB/354K in 373 2/3 minor league IP). In his third stint at AA Mobile, Bynum was lights out, posting a 0.81 ERA in 41 innings. Last year’s 14 appearances in a Padres uniform might have been the adjustment period this 1999 first-rounder needed, or it might have been a sign of things to come.
