RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for James Simmons.

2010

Simmons regressed a good bit at Triple-A Sacramento, allowing 139 hits and 47 walks in 119.2 innings, fanning just 81. The decay in both his strikeout rate and command are most alarming, though somewhat predictable given his less-than-stellar stuff. He allows far too many hits, doesn't keep the ball on the ground enough and showed poor control against advanced hitting. The A's expected much better when they placed him at Double-A Midland for his professional debut in 2007 after making him first-round pick, and there's now considerable doubt that he'll even develop into an innings eater in the majors.

2009

Simmons was back at Double-A Midland in 2008 after making his pro debut there in 2007 after being selected in the June draft. His numbers were similar to the year before, allowing 150 hits in 136 innings but showing good control (32 walks against just 120 Ks). Like Josh Outman, Simmons relies on less-than-stellar stuff and will see a reduction in his K rate once he faces advanced competition.He has better control than Outman however, but doesn't miss enough bats to be project beyond a back of the rotation starter.

2008

Simmons was placed aggressively at Double-A Midland after being selected in the first round of the 2007 draft. He relies heavily on precise control, and his pro debut showed some of his weaknesses (36 hits allowed in 29.2 innings). These types of pitchers rarely make the jump to staff ace level, but he could be a nice mid-rotation option for the A's as early as 2009.
