RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Zach Miner.

2011

Miner missed the entire 2010 season after suffering an elbow injury early in spring training. He originally planned to return to action last season, but after numerous setbacks, Miner was forced to undergo Tommy John surgery in May. The right-handed reliever is aiming for a return to the mound in January. If all goes well in his recovery, he could surface as a starter with the Royals after signing a minor league deal in December. Otherwise, he'll be ticketed to pitch in middle relief.

2010

Miner started the 2009 season as part of the Tigersí rotation due to injury, but became a permanent fixture in the bullpen after the first month of the season. In his 52 appearances, Miner put together a 7-5 record with a 4.29 ERA and a 62:45 K:BB ratio. Heíll once again assume the role of long-relief man out of the Tigersí bullpen, which limits his fantasy value, but he could see the occasional spot start if the Tigersí rotation falls victim to injuries.

2009

Miner started last season in the Tigers' pen but moved into the rotation late in the season. He was effective as a starter and the Tigers are now thinking of handing him a rotation spot to open the year. Minerís 39:19 K:BB ratio in 73.1 innings as a starter isnít that impressive, but strikeouts are not really his game anyway. He is most effective when he is getting outs on the ground and the Tigers intend to have a better infield defense this season. That could help Miner shave some points off his ERA and help to keep him in the rotation all season. There are better options in fantasy leagues, however.

2008

Miner has more or less been converted to a reliever which seems to be the role that suits him best. He doesn't have great stuff, as evidenced by his low strikeout rate, but can get ground balls and be adequate in middle relief. He should have a spot in Detroit's bullpen to start the season.

2007

Miner stepped into the Detroit rotation last season after Mike Maroth went down with an elbow injury. He reeled off six wins in his first seven major league starts before teams started to adjust to him. It would be unwise to expect Miner to have much value moving forward, however, because he doesnít have the stuff to dominate nor the control to be effective. Let someone else gamble on him.

2003

Miner's performance in low Single-A was a bit of a surprise. But given his good strikeout-to-walk ratio (131/51), he'll be a prospect to watch in Double-A this season. In the Braves' pitching-rich system, he'll need to stay hot to advance.
