RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Prior to the 2012 season, Thayer had appeared in just 23 MLB games and done so with little-to-no fan fair. That changed in 2012 as he appeared in 64 games for the Padres with a 3.43 ERA and seven saves to his name. Why it took so long for Thayer to get his big chance is a mystery as he posted a sub-3.00 ERA in six of his seven seasons in the minors. What is clear is that Thayer has earned himself a role as one of the top setup men in the Padres' bullpen. Couple this with closer Huston Street's inability to stay healthy and Thayer could very well see a couple of save chances again in 2013.

2010

Thayer pitched well at Triple-A Durham, posting a 2.27 ERA and a 1.168 WHIP. The Rays have a bunch of solid relievers which was the roadblock to Thayer's path to the majors. He'll get a shot to win a spot in the spring or possibly be traded to address other areas of need for the Rays.

2009

In most organizations, Thayer's 2008 Triple-A numbers would scream for a big league callup. However, the Rays boasted perhaps the best bullpen in the majors last year, so there was absolutely no room for Thayer. He may get a chance to compete for a middle relief role in the spring, or the Rays may place him a trade package for right field/DH help.

2008

After posting great numbers at both Double-A and Triple-A, Thayer likely will get a chance to compete for a bullpen role at the major league level in spring. Even if Thayer doesn't make the Opening Day roster due to a numbers crunch, he easily could be promoted in midseason and be asked to help out in a set-up role. While the Rays have a lot of pitching prospects, many are starters; Thayer has much less competition in his bid to make the Rays' bullpen.
