RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Brian Bass.

2011

Outside of two short stints with the Pirates, Bass spent most of last season at Triple-A Indianapolis working primarily in a relief role. The Phillies signed Bass to a minor league contract this winter and will give him a chance to compete with Kyle Kendrick and Vance Worley for the fifth spot in the Phillies rotation. Bass is a long shot to make the Phillies' roster.

2010

Bass was unreliable out of Baltimore's bullpen, but he was frequently in an unenviable mop-up role when starters let things get out of hand early in games. The role may not be ideal, but Bass is not capable of much more than that. He'll try to win a job in Pittsburgh's wide open bullpen competition.

2009

Bass pitched 44 games out of the bullpen for Minnesota in 2008, before he was sent down to Triple-A and traded to the Orioles. Baltimore wants to give Bass a shot at the rotation in 2009 and he pitched fairly well in four starts in September. Still, he did not have a solid season as a starter above High-A with Minnesota in the minors.

2006

Double-A has been a rude level to Bass. After dominating the lower levels for four seasons (3.35 ERA in 61 starts), Bass has hit a two-season wall in Wichita. His 2005 was a touch better but he didn't show any mastery of the level. In fact, he posted career highs in walks per nine innings (2.89) and home runs allowed (14). Strong performances in the Arizona Fall League give a glimmer of hope, but he'll need to improve at Double-A to move up.
