RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Deduno got a shot in the Minnesota rotation last season when injuries struck, but struggled with a 4.44 ERA and ugly 57:53 K:BB. He had always shown good strikeout rates in the minors, but finding the strike zone has been a problem. He is great at generating groundballs (almost 60 percent of batted balls between Triple-A and the majors last year) by getting uncanny movement on his fastball. He has some upside as a result if he can learn to reduce his walks. Deduno will enter 2013 with a shot at job in the rotation, but his upside appears limited due to his age (he will turn 29 this season) and his control issues.

2012

Deduno has had nice strikeout rates in his minor league career, but has struggled with his control as he did last year at Triple-A Tuscon (85:58 K:BB ratio in 105.1 innings). He'll likely just add depth at Triple-A for the Twins, but he could make the majors if the Minnesota bullpen is in flux.

2011

Deduno spent most of 2010 at Triple-A Colorado Springs as a starter, where he posted a 3-1 record and a 8.51 K/9IP. He possesses a sinking mid-90s fastball and devastating curveball, but has yet to overcome control issues to put it all together. The control issues are serious enough that he has yet to post a K/BB ratio over 2.00 at any of his full-season stops. Injuries are also a concern as he suffered a stress fracture in his elbow last season and had Tommy John surgery in 2008. Still, he's a talented pitcher (2009 Double-A Texas League Pitcher of the Year) that is probably best suited to pitch out of the bullpen. Should he trim down his walk rate, he could become a real force for the Rockies bullpen.

2010

Deduno returned last season following Tommy John surgery. He was lights out at Double-A Tulsa, earning Pitcher of the Year honors in the Texas League. Deduno has outstanding movement on a 95-mph fastball and a wicked curveball, which is his out pitch. Ultimately, commanding his moving fastball and biting curve will be the keys to his success, and he could start or pitch in relief if his arm is sound. Deduno's chances of making the rotation this season are slim, but he's on the Rockies' radar, and his progress should be followed carefully. It's possible he'll be part of the bullpen in 2010, but he won't be closing games, so his fantasy value should be viewed on a long-term scale.

2009

Deduno missed the season following Tommy John surgery. He returns this season to Tulsa, having been added to the 40-man roster, with a chance to make quick progress to the Rockies' bullpen. Not a bad endgame/sleeper pick.
