RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Yorman Bazardo.
Bazardo started the year on fire at Triple-A Round Rock, but could not translate that to success in Houston. That has been the story of his career: promising one minute, disastrous the next. When you rely on your defense as much as Bazardo does, the results from year-to-year can be erratic. Fantasy owners should throw darts elsewhere in the endgame, even though he'll be in the running for the Astros' No. 5 starter spot.
The Tigers acquired Bazardo from the Mariners before the start of last season. He spent most of the year with Triple-A Toledo, where the Tigers used him mostly as a starter, but it appears the team hasn't yet decided on his long-term role. Bazardo doesn't have overpowering stuff as evidenced by his mediocre strikeout rate, but he has posted a decent walk rate in the minors and in his brief stint in the majors. It is possible he could be a serviceable pitcher for the Tigers but his potential fantasy value is limited.
Bazardo started 25 games at Double-A San Antonio last season, but didn't show great control. He struck out 5.2 batters per nine innings, but walked nearly three per nine and allowed more than nine hits per nine. A minor league starter, Bazardo pitched in relief in the Venezuelan winter league and his big-league future likely lies in the bullpen as well. Through 16 winter league games, he had a 1.44 ERA in 25 innings and a 15:5 K:BB. He was traded to Detroit over the winter and will compete for a middle relief spot in the Tigers' bullpen.
The Mariners acquired Bazardo in a mid-season trade last year, and he finished the season at Double-A San Antonio where he recorded a 4.28 ERA in six starts. He posted a 2/1 K/BB ratio for the season, which included one appearance for the Marlins, who soured on the prospect enough to deal him. Bazardo likely will begin at Triple-A Tacoma and could possibly see some late-season innings with the Mariners.
