RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Duane Below.

2013

Below was a surprise candidate for the Tigers' starting rotation after strong spring training, but he ended up making 21 of his 22 appearances out of the bullpen. He finished the 2012 season with a 2-1 record, 3.88 ERA and 29:8 K:BB in 46.1 innings. With ample starting pitching depth already on the 40-man roster, his immediate future appears to be cemented in as a long-relief option, but given the presence of Drew Smyly and Luis Marte, Below is not guaranteed an Opening Day roster spot out of the bullpen.

2012

Below has been considered a middling prospect since his 19th-round selection in the 2006 draft, but he has steadily marched his way through the Tigers minor league system the last five years. He put together his best season in 2011, going 9-4 with a 3.13 ERA and 83:37 K:BB ratio in 115 innings for Triple-A Toledo. The success he displayed with the Mud Hens resulted in a midseason promotion to Detroit. Below went 0-2 with a 4.34 ERA, 1.345 WHIP and 14:11 K:BB ratio in 14 appearances after being called up. The 26-year-old lefty mixes in a low-90s fastball with an above average curve and a mediocre change-up. His stuff isnít overpowering, but Below can be effective at the major league level. Look for him to serve in long relief with the possibility of occasional spot starts. If Below makes any noise in fantasy this year, it will be in AL-only leagues that value middle relievers.
