RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Chad Orvella.

2009

Orvella missed all of last season due to a shoulder inpingement, and the Rays moved him off their 40-man roster in December, signifying the formal end of his prospect status. He may need a fresh start in another organization to claim a bullpen role in the majors.

2008

While Orvella enjoyed a solid Triple-A season, it's not the first time he's done so, and he went through an ugly stint with the Rays in May and June (29 of 56 batters reached base over eight innings). It's telling that the Rays did not bring Orvella back later in the summer when their bullpen was falling apart, as they knew he likely wouldn't help things. Orvella probably will get one more chance to crack the Rays' bullpen in spring training, but unless he shows consistent command against big league hitters, he'll get branded as a Quadruple-A roster filler.

2007

Orvella stunk in his stints for the Rays in 2006, but look at his Triple-A numbers, especially that 55:9 K:BB in 39 IP. And then realize he wasn't repeating the level—he had pitched less than two Triple-A innings in his life prior to 2006. Orvella still has a chance to be an awfully effective major league relief pitcher, and looking back, he was likely rushed by the Rays last year. Seth McClung isn't all that secure as the Rays' closer so the job could fall to Orvella after all with a great spring.

2006

Following the Danys Baez trade to the Dodgers, Orvella is the top candidate to take over the Devil Rays' closer role. We like his chances of success, as he basically maintained that incredible minor league strikeout rate in his big-league trial last season. Check the Rays' closer situation in the spring, but even if Orvella only pitches in the eighth inning, those K's will help in deep leagues.

2005

Circle this kid's name right now. Orvella moved from low Single-A to Triple-A in the course of just one season and wound up with a 117/10 K/BB ratio in just 74 IP. Don't be shocked if the Devil Rays trade away Danys Baez or Jesus Colome to clear room for Orvella, who could be Tampa Bay's answer to Billy Wagner.
