RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

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.
