RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

The 28-year-old late bloomer carved out a role as a lefty specialist out of the Tigers' bullpen last season, finishing 0-2 with a 4.84 ERA and 1.33 WHIP in 35.2 innings. While not overpowering, Downs proved to be successful against left-handed hitters (.219 BAA) by mixing pitches and hitting his spots. Detroit declined their 2014 option on Downs, and the Astros quickly scooped him up off waivers. Downs projects to hold a similar specialty role out of the bullpen with his new squad.

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.
