RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Clayton Mortensen.

2013

Mortensen filled a long-relief role for Boston, a team whose starters created a lot of need for an innings-eater in the bullpen. For Mortensen to make the roster heading into the 2013 season, we will need to see what Boston does with its surfeit of lefty relievers as well as Alfredo Aceves. Mortensen is out of minor league options. If he does not make Boston's roster out of spring training, the Red Sox would have to expose him to waivers before assigning him to Triple-A.

2012

Mortensen cheated FIP (5.51) with his 3.86 ERA in Colorado last season. He wasn't a dominant starter in the minors by any stretch, but a 4.63 K/9IP over 58.1 innings for the Rockies gives you an idea of how hittable he was at the big league level. Mortensen was pounded at Colorado Springs as well, and his walk rate spiked at both levels from his previous career norms. Long term, his big league future is almost certainly in the bullpen where his ability to induce groundballs will ultimately determine if he's able to stick as a middle reliever.

2010

Mortensen was acquired by the A's as part of the package that netted the Cardinals Matt Holliday. He was knocked around the yard in six starts, allowing 37 hits, 12 walks and five homers in 27.2 innings. His composite numbers at Triple-A, split between two PCL teams, weren't great either (137.1 innings, 143 hits, 100:48 K:BB). He'll likely see a few starts at the back end of the A's rotation when injuries dictate, but there's not much to like here.
