RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Downs made his major league debut in 2012, appearing in 18 games while working out of the bullpen. The 28-year-old lefty finished the season 2-1 with a 3.48 ERA and 20:9 K:BB while working primarily in stress-free innings. He does not possess an overpowering arsenal, but Downs was able to dominate left-handed hitters (.171/.237/.158), which should give him the opportunity to earn a specialty role out of spring training.

2012

Downs will join Detroit in spring training as a non-roster invitee. The 27-year-old lefty has spent his entire career in the minors, compiling a 49-43 record with a 4.29 ERA in 232 appearances as a starter and reliever. He'll provide Detroit with extra organizational pitching depth in the minors.
