Cedeno is a candidate for save opportunities with Brad Boxberger (abdomen) expected to miss eight weeks. "We have a number of guys that could try to fill that void for the first month of the year," manager Kevin Cash told the Tampa Tribune. "We'll have some opportunities that will present itself for more bullpen arms."

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Cedeno had the best season of his career at Triple-A last year, but the Nationals' bullpen depth prevented him from getting much of a chance to prove he could replicate those numbers in the big leagues. Jerry Blevins is still around to fill the club's primary left-handed reliever role, although manager Matt Williams didn't use Blevins purely as a LOOGY. With Ross Detwiler traded to Texas in the offseason, Cedeno has a chance to join the staff in spring training. He doesn't possess dominating stuff, so if he does stick in the majors he'll be hard-pressed to maintain his minor league strikeout rates, but his arm angle and fastball/slider combo could allow him to effectively neutralize tough left-handers batters.

2014

Cedeno's 45 strikeouts in 34.1 Triple-A innings and continued ability to throw left-handed will get him plenty more chances, but he'll need to sharpen his control if he wants to see real major league success. After being promoted to Washington in September, Cedeno has managed to keep a 40-man roster spot through the offseason, but he's hardly guaranteed a job with the Nats on Opening Day.

2013

Promoted to take Wandy Rodriguez's spot when Rodriguez was traded to Pittsburgh, Cedeno found his way into 44 games as a lefty specialist. He really struggled on the road, allowing at least two baserunners in more than half of his road appearances (he allowed multiple baserunners in just 13 percent of his home appearances). Cedeno led the team with an impressive 10.5 K/9. He was probably hoping to become that lefty at the back of the bullpen for Houston, but with Wesley Wright now firmly ensconced in that role, it looks like Cedeno will mostly be seeing time in garbage innings.
