RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Virgil Vasquez.

2009

Vasquez took a big step back last season after earning a promotion to the majors in 2007. His K:BB ratio remained solid but the long ball continues to be his Achilles' heel. He allowed 27 homers in 27 starts, a number that perhaps only Petco can help fix. The Red Sox claimed Vasquez on waivers after last season and will likely give him a chance to earn a bullpen job this spring.

2008

Vasquez continued to show good control – something he's done throughout his minor league career – in his first exposure to Triple-A, but struggled with the long ball, giving up 18 home runs. Vasquez had a couple of opportunities in the majors when the Tigers needed a spot starter but failed to capitalize. He allowed 16 earned runs in just 16.2 innings while also allowing seven home runs. If Vasquez can't find a way to keep the ball in the park he's not going to stick in the majors.

2007

Vasquez got himself added to the Detroit 40-man roster this winter after a solid season at Double-A Erie. He has displayed very good control throughout his minor league career but scouts question whether he has the stuff to get major league hitters out. He’ll likely start the year at Triple-A and could put himself in line for a callup with a strong start to the season.

2006

Vasquez continued to show his remarkable control last season walking only 21 batters in 130 2/3 IP between Single-A and Double-A. He's not overpowering so he needs that control to be successful. The Tigers will likely send him back to Double-A to start the season.

2005

Vasquez is considered to have the best control of any pitcher in the Tigers farm system and was solid in his first season at Single-A. He is still several years away from a major league debut, however, and the Tigers are primarily looking at him as a set-up man.

2003

Seventh-round draft choice in 2003. Played college ball at University of California at Santa Barbara.
