RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Ottavino assumed a hybrid role out of the bullpen last season, swinging between both long relief and shorter, high-leverage work for the Rockies. Ottavino seemed to thrive regardless of the situation, striking out just under a batter per inning to finish with a career-best 2.64 ERA (3.15 FIP). Though the Rockies havenít clarified their plans for Ottavino in 2013, thereís a good chance heíll pitch more innings of higher consequence coming off his breakthrough performance. As the most versatile member of the bullpen, Ottavino will be sure to receive an ample workload regardless of how heís used.

2013

Ottavino saw extensive usage last season as a hybrid reliever working in conjunction with the Rockies' four-man rotation experiment, pitching 79 innings in relief. While a move back to a more traditional rotation setup in 2013 should lighten Ottavino's workload, there is a good chance the Rockies continue to deploy him for multiple innings of relief going forward. In the 25 games in which he pitched more than one inning last season, Ottavino rewarded the team with a 2.13 ERA. Previously a starter in the Cardinals organization, Ottavino saw an increase in his fastball velocity and strikeout rate upon moving to relief full time. While he will not be in the mix for save chances, Ottavino should nonetheless remain one of the Rockiesí more trusted relievers.

2010

Ottavino has already started 92 games in his four years in the minors, and if he doesn't watch out, he may staying down there for awhile. He's still just 24 and has showcased good strikeout rates every year, but his problem of being too hittable was exacerbated by a high walk rate in 2009. He will probably pitch a lot during spring training, but he doesn't have a realistic shot of making the squad this year.

2008

A first-round pick out of Northeastern University in 2006, Ottavino has already started 41 games in the minors. At High-A Palm Beach last year, Ottavino had a 3.08 ERA and 128 strikeouts in 143 innings. He's still just 22, but he'll be on the fast track to the majors in 2008 and will possibly be competing for a spot in the St. Louis rotation by 2009.
