RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Consistency has eluded McAllister throughout his career despite a relatively solid skillset at the foundation. He has a 2.5 K:BB ratio for his career, but hasn’t been able to turn it into steady results. His fastball velocity jumped two ticks to a career-best 94 mph average, which helped him regain his strikeout losses from 2013, but he remains too hittable and especially so with runners on base. As he piles up more work, it is harder to suggest he has simply been unlucky with the .313 BABIP and 66 percent LOB rates for his career, but all of his ERA indicators are well below the 5.23 ERA he was saddled with in 2014. Part of the higher BABIP is a poor Cleveland defense and that extends to the LOB, but two seasons of sub-65 percent LOB rates suggest he is definitely part of the problem, too. There is some intrigue here, but nothing you need to pay for at the draft table. For one, he doesn’t have a rotation spot locked down just yet, but also because his history won’t have many betting on a surge in performance.

2014

McAllister missed time last season with a finger injury, but was fairly effective in 24 starts when healthy. He doesn't have great control (3.3 BB/9) or miss a ton of bats (6.8 K/9) which figures to keep him from taking much of a step forward as a 26-year-old. Further, McAllister has experienced a declining amount of success getting opposing hitters to chase his offerings outside the strike zone, which led to a modest 7.1% swinging-strike rate in 2013. Without a standout offering in his arsenal, McAllister will likely serve as a back-end starter for the Indians in 2014 with a very limited ceiling as he moves ahead in his career.

2013

McAllister had moderate success after joining the Indians rotation for good in late June, but had some ugly efforts late in the season that tainted his overall numbers. His strikeout rate took an uptick after joining the Indians and he'll need to hold onto those gains if he is going to have prolonged success. The Indians are counting on him to make the starting rotation out of spring training, so he'll have to pitch himself off the roster in March unless they're able to upgrade their starting rotation drastically over the winter.

2012

McAllister made a few spot starts for the Indians, but spent the bulk of the season at Triple-A Columbus, going 12-3 with a 3.32 ERA, 1.203 WHIP and a 128:31 K:BB ratio in 25 starts. In addition to increasing his strikeout rate at Triple-A (7.47 K/9IP), McAllister's walk rate (1.81 BB/9IP) was the lowest he's turned in since making the leap to Double-A with the Yankees in 2009. Just 24, he'll be among the candidates considered for the Cleveland rotation if injuries create an opportunity at some point this season.

2010

The 22-year-old McAllister continued his rapid rise through the Yankees’ system last season, leading the Eastern League with a 2.23 ERA in 22 Double-A starts. Despite a lack of dominating stuff, McAllister has good control of his sinking fastball (2.9 K/BB ratio) and keeps the ball in the park by inducing plenty of ground balls (just four homers allowed). He needs more time in the minors to develop his secondary pitches – curveball, slider, changeup – but projects as a mid-rotation grinder in the bigs, possibly as soon as 2011.

2009

McAllister displayed excellent command between Low-A Charleston and High-A Tampa last season, vaulting his way up the team's organizational ranks. While he's not overpowering, McAllister commands his four-pitch arsenal -- low-90s fastball, curveball, slider and changeup -- very well (1.25 BB/9IP) and generates a healthy number of strikeouts. He could begin Double-A as a 21-year-old in 2009, but given the way the Yankees are rebuilding their rotation through free agency, he may end up as a valuable trade chip if his development continues to progress this well.
