RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Travis Bowyer.
Bowyer, acquired from the Twins last offseason for Luis Castillo, was expected to compete for the closer's role, but instead missed the entire season with a shoulder injury. The Marlins will again be looking for a closer in 2007, and Bowyer's pre-injury power repertoire would seem to be ideally suited for the role, but until he proves he's healthy he's a long shot at best to have any impact.
Bowyer put up some impressive strikeout totals at Triple-A last season (96/40 K/BB ratio in 74 1/3 innings) and could win the closer role for the Marlins or serve as a primary set-up man after his trade from the Twins for Luis Castillo. He could be a nice sleeper as a result.
Bowyer finished 2004 a combined 9-3 with a 97/55 K/BB ratio in 91 innings pitched between Single-A and Double-A. He'll likely return to Double-A to start 2005. He's seen as a second tier pitching prospect in the Twins system but another strong year could make him a factor in the majors in 2006.
