RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Barry Enright.
Enright somehow managed to post a 3.91 ERA with the Diamondbacks in 2010 despite allowing a whopping 20 homers and striking out only 49 batters in 99 innings. Not surprisingly, he's struggled immensely since then, although he did find some success at the Triple-A level after coming over to the Angels' organization in a trade last season. He only allowed three homers in eight starts for Triple-A Salt Lake City despite pitching in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League, but his 30:19 K:BB remained unimpressive. With a strong showing in spring training, Enright could make a push for a spot on the Opening Day roster as a long reliever and spot starter.
The red flags were clear during his starts in September of 2010, but the D-Backs gave him another shot in the back of their rotation before pulling the plug after seven starts. Enright was pounded for 50 hits including 11 homers in just 37.2 innings and that earned him a full-time spot with Reno the rest of the way. The long ball was still an issue for him after the demotion and while he could be among the options considered for a spot start in 2012, he's a long shot to stick in the Arizona rotation full time with the organization's young pitching prospects knocking on the door for big league duty.
After skipping Triple-A last season, Enright managed to float as a 24-year-old rookie thanks in large part to a .251 BABIP. The underlying numbers here scream regression, especially when you consider his issues with the long ball (20 allowed in 99 innings) and the inability to make hitters swing and miss (4.45 K/9IP). We can't rule Reno out of his 2011 itinerary, but the D-Backs may afford him the chance to open the season in their rotation again to see if he's able to make adjustments and continue to take the ball every fifth day. Enright's strikeout rate tumbled each month after his callup, seemingly as scouting reports circulated about his stuff, and his forgettable September (6.89 ERA, 10:7 K:BB in 32.2 innings and 13 homers allowed) should be enough to keep you away on draft day.
Enright continued to show good command of his four-pitch arsenal at Double-A Mobile last season. Despite lacking overpowering stuff, Enright keeps opposing hitters off balance and seems to have a future in the big leagues as a No. 4 or No. 5 starter. His next major hurdle will be figuring out left-handed hitters, as they continued to enjoy significantly more success against him than righties. If those struggles continue, an eventual shift to a relief role could be in order. Entering 2010, Enright will be ticketed for a spot in the rotation at Triple-A Reno. A late-season callup to Arizona isn't out of the question – perhaps in a bullpen role – as he's behind Billy Buckner, Kevin Mulvey and Bryan Augenstein in the queue for a spot in the D-Backs rotation.
Enright rolled up all of 12 innings in three stops last season after being selected with a second-round pick by Arizona. Eventually, he could slot in as a potential No. 4 or No. 5 starter and given his experience at Pepperdine, there's a chance he'll get a look -- if only as bullpen depth in September -- at some point in 2008 if he's able to hit the ground running at Double-A to begin the season.
