RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Brett Sinkbeil.
Sinkbeil had his second straight poor season in the high minors, this time mostly out of the Triple-A bullpen, and while he gets enough ground balls to live up to his name, his major league future is now in serious doubt.
Sinkbeil dealt with some forearm problems in 2007, limiting him to 14 starts at High-A and delaying his ascent up the Marlins' organizational depth chart, but he pitched in winter ball and seemed fully healthy. He's got a good three-pitch arsenal (low-90s fastball, slider and change-up, although none are truly outstanding pitches) and very good control, which gives him the upside of a solid mid-rotation starter. He'll need to prove he can hold up under a full workload before he'll rejoin the ranks of the Marlins' top pitching prospects, however.
Sinkbeil's first season as a pro was something of a mixed bag. The 19th overall pick in 2006 proved too much for New York-Penn League batters to handle but sagged after a promotion to Low-A, likely due to fatigue. The Marlins will use 2007 to get him used to the rigors of a long season, and assuming no bumps in the road he should finish up the year in Double-A, with the majors on the horizon in 2008. Whether there are any rotation openings at that time, given all the pitching talent in the organization, remains to be seen.
