RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Jaime Cerda.
Cerda didn't pitch well for the Royals in 2005 yet the Rockies claimed him off waivers and will use him as a lefty specialist. Over the last four seasons Cerda has held left-handed hitters to a .225 batting average.
The Royals acquired Cerda from the New York Mets in exchange for Shawn Sedlacek, a pitcher that didnít seem likely to get another opportunity in Kansas City, so any value from Cerda was an improvement. In that vein, Cerda was a nice surprise. He spent only a few weeks in Triple-A at the beginning of the season and then filled a middle-relief/lefty specialist role the rest of the season. He walked far too many but often pitched around those problems. Tough on lefties and not overly exposed against righties, Cerda is a nice fit for Tony Pena, a manager who isnít prone to using a reliever for just one or two batters.
Cerda is at times effective as a left-handed specialist and middle reliever but walks too many (20 in 32.2 IP) to be relied on in tight situations. Cerda will again bounce between Triple-A and the majors.
Cerda was effective out of the pen, with a 2.45 ERA, but he needs to cut down on the walks (14 in 25 innings). Still, his upside right now is as a lefty-specialist.
