RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Sergio Mitre.
Mitre returned to the Yankees in July and promptly was scored upon in all four of his relief appearances before being shut down with a shoulder issue. Even if Mitre returns to health in 2012 and finds a job somewhere, he's one of the more hittable pitchers and should be avoided in all fantasy leagues given his swing man role and inability to stay on the mound for a prolonged stretch.
Mitre posted a 2.88 ERA in his first 12 appearances last season before suffering an oblique injury. He wasn't the same after that and was plagued by an inability to generate strikeouts (4.8 K/9IP) and a tendency to give up homers (1.2 HR/9IP). He'll probably make a few spot starts this season, but his primary role will be as a long reliever.
Mitre was valuable to the Yankees in the second half in the sense that he was a healthy arm to round out the rotation, but his 6.79 ERA and 10 homers allowed in 51.2 innings left a lot to be desired. He’ll theoretically be given a shot at a spot in the back end of the rotation this season, but we’d be surprised if he carves out anything more than a long-relief role.
Mitre may not pitch until the All-Star break after undergoing Tommy John surgery in July, but depending on the team's needs, he gives the Yankees a potential arm for their rotation if injuries ravage their stable of starters, otherwise he'll likely work in long relief. While he's rehabbing, Mitre will be able to serve a 50-game suspension for violating the league's drug policy.
Mitre roared out of the gate in 2007, posting a 1.12 ERA and 29:6 K:BB ratio in May (40.1 innings) but a hamstring injury slowed him down and he was mediocre at best the rest of the way. The Marlins will be counting on him as a rotation regular this year, and improved infield defense behind him would go a long way towards making Mitre's sinker/change repertoire more consistent.
For the third straight year Mitre flunked a major league audition, putting up mediocre numbers in a swing man role for the Marlins before getting shut down with a shoulder injury. He'll be 26 at the start of 2007, and it's hard to see a future, or even much of a present, in Florida for Mitre if he doesn't show something very quickly.
Mitre pitched passably at Triple-A the past couple seasons, but struggled when called up to the bigs. The trade to the Marlins and Pro Player Stadium can only help, and Mitre should get a crack at the starting rotation. But given his modest arm and adequate-at-best command, we wouldn't expect much.
Mitre spent some time early in the year as the Cubs fifth starter, but got hit hard in his nine starts and was demoted to Triple-A for most of the season, where he pitched pretty well for the second year in a row. He doesn't overpower hitters, and his control is good, but not outstanding.
Mitre pitched pretty well at Double-A last season, with a 128:41 K:BB ratio in 146 IP before getting shelled during two very brief major league callups. He's likely to start the season in the high minors and could be recalled at some point. Given the surplus of quality arms in the Cubs' system, we don't see Mitre making much of an impact for the foreseeable future.
