RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Tim Alderson.
After zipping through three levels in two years with San Francisco, Alderson cooled off after going to Pittsburgh for Freddy Sanchez in a deadline deal last summer. The 2007 No. 1 draft pick began the campaign with a sparking 6-1 mark. A 46:14 K:BB ratio in 72.2 innings stood out, but an overall WHIP of 1.239 didn't look quite as good because of the 76 hits he allowed with Double-A Connecticut. Pitching for the Double-A Curve, Alderson put up erratic numbers, including an 18:13 K:BB ratio in 26 innings, but the 21-year-old righty has plenty of room to grow. Alderson's fastball can hit the low 90s with a herky-jerk motion that some believe could be even faster with some mechanical adjustments. He came to the Pirates as a highly-touted prospect and will likely get a chance to show his wares once again at the Double-A level with a chance of late-season advancement to Triple-A.
The 22nd pick of the 2006 draft, Alderson posted a 2.79 ERA with a 124:34 K:BB ratio over 145.1 innings for High-A San Jose last year. He was named Starting Pitcher of the Year for his league, and at just 20 years old, has quickly become one of baseball's best prospects. Alderson is still a couple of years away from contributing, but he's a highly valuable keeper property.
Alderson was selected out of high school with the 22nd overall pick in last year's draft. Standing 6-6, Alderson works exclusively out of the stretch and has good command with the ability to throw three pitches. He's still a few years away, but he might be the team's long-term answer at closer.
