With a playoff berth in the balance, the Mariners might need 18 innings out of Felix Hernandez this week, which would be just fine for fantasy owners.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

After being named the Opening Day starter in 2012, Arrieta held his own in April before the wheels came off in May and June. Arrieta was banished to the minors before returning down the stretch as a reliever, a move duplicated with Tommy Hunter and Brian Matusz. However, Arrieta did not have as much success out of the bullpen as the other two and the Orioles will almost certainly force him to compete for a job in spring training, be it as a starter or a reliever. An element of bad luck may have been in play in 2012, as Arrieta improved his K/BB rate to 3.1 in 2012 from 1.6 in 2011, and his 8.6 K/9 is easily the best of his career. We know Arrieta is not an ace, but there is bounceback potential in 2013 and the Orioles should return him to a starting role.

2012

Arrieta was one of many pitchers in the Orioles organization to take a step back in 2011. He couldn't solve his control issues, walking more than 4.00 BB/9IP for the second straight season. Last season also saw home-run issues rear their ugly head, as Arrieta gave up 1.58 HR/9IP. Now 26, there is still time for Arrieta, but both he and the organization will need to see some improvement for the sake of their long-term futures. Keep an eye on his workload during spring training as his season ended in August following surgery to remove a bone spur from his pitching elbow.

2011

After dominating Triple-A over 11 starts, the Orioles decided to call up Arrieta to see if he was ready for the big leagues. Unfortunately, he wasn't and things derailed over 18 MLB starts as Arrieta had a 52:48 K:BB ratio in 100.1 innings. Not only did he walk plenty of hitters, his successful strikeout rate did not immediately translate from the minors. Look for Arrieta to be the Orioles' fourth or fifth starter to open the season, and keep in mind that some scouts are on the record saying that he could be better than teammates Brian Matusz and Chris Tillman in the long run.

2010

Arrieta is probably the best pitcher in Baltimore's system that has not made his MLB debut. The good news is that he is almost ready, but the bad news is he should not be confused with Chris Tillman and Brian Matusz. Arrieta seemed to be challenged in Triple-A, but he should have the stuff to be a middle or back of the rotation guy. Arrieta will compete for a rotation spot in spring, but it is more likely he will get the call around June.

2009

Arrieta is the third best pitching prospect in the system, but that isn't such a bad thing with Chris Tillman and Brian Matusz being the two ranked higher. Arrieta should start the season in Double-A and be in line for a rotation spot in 2010.

2008

Arrieta, along with Matt Wieters, offers Orioles fans some hope in that he represents a change in philosophy in their front office. Prior to Andy MacPhail coming aboard, the team had refrained from spending over-slot money to land the best talent in the draft. That changed in 2007, with the selection of Wieters in the first round and Arrieta in the fifth round. Arrieta is a little risky, having lost four mph on his fastball during his final college season, but he seemed to allay those fears this fall at the Arizona Fall League, throwing 16 scoreless innings with a 16:7 K:BB. He could rise rapidly through the lower minors with a good 2008 debut.
