RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Jepsen had a terrible April last year and spent May and June in the minors, but after getting called back up in July he was able to assert his place in the Angels' bullpen, posting a 1.69 ERA and 1.08 WHIP over 37.2 innings. His strong numbers over that period were backed by solid peripherals, namely a 34:10 K:BB and 0.5 HR/9. Jepsen figures to open the season working as part of the improving bridge to the Angels' closer, although he's now further down the list of options in the ninth inning with the addition of Ryan Madson during the offseason.

2012

After appearing in 122 games out of the Angels bullpen between 2009 and 2010, Jepsen struggled through a rough 2011 season. A 7.62 ERA and dreadful 6:9 K:BB ratio through 16 appearances earned Jepsen a ticket to Triple-A in mid-June, and a knee injury suffered shortly thereafter ended his season in mid-July. Despite last season’s struggles, Jepsen’s history will give him a shot at earning a spot in the bullpen during spring training.

2011

Jepsen pitched a bit better last season than he did in 2009, but his impressive 61:29 K:BB ratio in 59 innings was offset by a 1.407 WHIP. Jepsen, who reaches the upper-90s with his fastball, is a potential closer of the future in Anaheim; but he is also a valuable trade chip that could net the Angels another starter or position player. The Angels have yet to name an official closer, but expect Jepsen to be one of the top setup options in front of the pitcher that wins the job, likely Fernando Rodney.

2010

Jepsen pitched much better than his 4.94 ERA indicated, with a nearly 3.0 K/BB ratio and a great groundball rate. He simply had a lot of hits get through. Jepsen has been a reliever since 2007, but has the skills and size of a starter. There's not much chance that he'll close, but his ERA will come down by a run, making him useful as a staff filler.

2009

Jepsen split last season between Double-A Arkansas and Triple-A Salt Lake but pitched effectively enough in a short major league stint late in the season to be included on the Angels’ opening round playoff roster. Jepsen is a hard-throwing right-hander who struck out 56 batters over 54.2 minor league innings last season while holding opposing batters to a miniscule .204 batting average. Jepsen will turn 25 in the middle of next season, and will either begin 2009 with Salt Lake or in the majors, depending on what happens in spring training. If Jepsen starts the season with Salt Lake, expect him to be among the first guys called up if the Angels need to tweak their bullpen.

2003
