RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

There was no outlook written for Roman Colon.

2010

Colon returned to the big leagues after a three-year hiatus, appearing in 43 games for the Royals. He struggled mightily in the first half of 2009, posting a 4.96 ERA in 16.1 innings. Colon had much better success in September, as he gave up only three earned runs in 17 innings. Colon must show better control (3.9 BB/9IP) and continue his late-season success in spring training to win a spot in the bullpen and be thought of as a dependable late-inning arm in 2010.

2007

The Tigers opened last season hoping Colon could be a back-of-the-rotation option but by the middle of the year they determined his best role is as a middle reliever. Then Colon was shut down at the end of the year because of neck spasms and this winter had surgery to take care of a herniation in his neck. He's expected to begin throwing around March, which will put him behind the other pitchers on the Detroit staff and likely land him in the minors to open the year.

2006

The Tigers picked up Colon in a deadline deal with the Braves last season. He's not an overpowering pitcher but has shown decent control. Allowing 2.21 HR per nine innings last year is cause for concern. He'll compete for a rotation spot this spring.

2005

Colon wasn't considered a top prospect before 2004, but he made a strong impression in spring training and then had a solid year at Triple-A Richmond, posting the highest strikeout rate of his minor league career. Although he was a bit old at that level to be a top prospect, he could be a productive middle reliever with the Braves if he can find a roster spot.
