RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Huff made a handful of starts for the Indians in September, but spent much of the season at Triple-A Columbus. He didn't really do anything there that he hasn't done before (1.41 WHIP, 4.97 ERA, 5.3 K/9) and his continued struggles to miss bats against advanced competition got the better of him again. He'll be in the mix for a spot at the back of the Cleveland rotation this spring, but there is nothing to get excited about here.

2012

Huff got roughed up in 10 starts for Cleveland, posting a 1.421 WHIP and a 4.09 ERA, as he shuttled back and forth between Cleveland and Triple-A Columbus. He was serviceable at Triple-A (9-3, 3.87 ERA, 1.318 WHIP, 5.6 K/9IP) but hasn't had much success in parts of three seasons in the majors. Unfortunately for Huff, his path to a rotation spot has become more difficult with the midseason trade for Ubaldo Jimenez and the offseason acquisition of Derek Lowe.

2011

Huff got his brains beat in again at the big league level, posting a 6.21 ERA and a 1.695 WHIP in 15 nightmarish starts for the Indians. He simply doesn't miss enough bats to have much success in the majors unless his command and control are near perfect. He's been bypassed by some other arms in the Cleveland system and will need to have an excellent spring to crack the starting rotation.

2010

Huff got cuffed around pretty good in his rookie season, posting a 1.558 WHIP and a 5.61 ERA in 23 starts for the Indians. He did manage to win 11 games so it wasn't a total loss if you had him rostered, but he's got a lot of work to do. He'll need to miss more bats (65 K in 128.1 innings) and avoid the long ball (16 homers allowed) if he's to fulfill the promise he flashed between Double-A and Triple-A back in 2008. Without better command, his middle-of-the-road stuff may just not be enough to consistently get guys out. He'll enter the season with an inside track toward a spot in the Indians' rotation.

2009

Huff started the season in fine fashion at Double-A and earned himself a promotion to Triple-A where he continued to dominate. The Indians decided to shut him down and limit his innings instead of giving him a September callup. He doesn't flash the stuff that his numbers suggest and the minors are littered with lefties that struggle to make the leap to Triple-A, but Huff cleared the first hurdle without too much trouble. The Indians will likely want to see how he fares in an extended look at Triple-A to start the season before giving him a chance to become a regular part of their bullpen.

2008

Huff was limited to just 11 starts at High-A last year due to an elbow injury that didn't require surgery. He was able to make it back in time for a stint in the Arizona Fall League and while his ERA wasn't good (6.06) his K:BB ratio was solid (15:3 in 16 innings). The left-hander boasts only a mediocore fastball and relies on off-speed stuff to get hitters out. The trash heap is littered with pitchers with a similiar pedigree but the Indians saw enough to make him a first-round selection. He's a back of the rotation guy at best but it's far too soon to see if he'll make it that far. He figures to repeat High-A after an abbreviated campaign there last season.
