RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Hunter's downfall in 2012 was his susceptibility to the long ball. He gave up 32 home runs in just 133.2 innings, was ousted from the rotation and had two brief stints in the minors. Hunter returned as a reliever in September and allowed just one run in 12 appearances, including the playoffs. Hunter's velocity spiked to the upper-90s after the move to the bullpen, but the Orioles have not committed a spot to Hunter in either the rotation or the bullpen for 2013. It would take an incredible spring training for Hunter to make the rotation, so he could be used in long relief or shuttle between Triple-A and the majors as a starter.

2012

Hunter began the 2011 season in the Rangers bullpen, but a trade to Baltimore resulted in a return to the rotation. Nothing changed besides the uniform, as Hunter was generally rocked with the Orioles, allowing a 5.06 ERA and 11 home runs in an equal number of starts. Hunter continues to be a classic replacement level starting pitcher, albeit one who doesn't have as much experience as you would expect for someone his age thanks to a steady dose of time spent on the disabled list.

2011

Hunter suffered an oblique injury in spring training, but found himself in the Texas rotation by early June and ended up racking up 13 wins in the process. He continued to show good control, issuing just 33 walks in 128 innings, but fanned just 68 batters. Toss out his first five starts, and you've got a pitcher hovering right around a 4.40 ERA and 1.350 WHIP which is a truer reflection of his abilities than his season as a whole. He's an adequate back-of-the-rotation starter who loses value in most formats with his lack of strikeouts.

2010

Hunter took over for an injured Matt Harrison in the Texas rotation in June, showing good control (33 walks in 112 innings), but not many strikeouts. That profile (not missing many bats, not getting many groundballs) doesn't translate very well very often, though Hunter was one of several Rangers starters that had a better season than the underlying numbers would suggest. Throwing strikes and hoping it's caught at the warning track doesn't come recommended in one of the AL's best hitting parks, so buyer beware here.

2009

Hunter pitched at four levels, including a brief stint with Texas, in 2008 despite being pretty hittable at all stops. His composite line in the minors (163.2 innings, 170 hits, 34 walks, 106 K) look a tad worse when you remove his numbers from High-A Bakersfield (50 K in 58.1 innings). While his control is major league ready, it doesn't look like he'll miss enough bats to be an effective starter in the majors given Texas' home park. He doesn't miss many meals either, as witnessed by his 6-3, 255-pound frame, which could be a problem down the road.
