RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

The Orioles plucked McFarland from Cleveland via the Rule 5 draft and used him as a mop-up reliever. He had topped out at Triple-A in 2012 as a starter with the Indians and the results were mixed. McFarland held his own in April and May before a couple of implosions, though he seldom pitched in high-pressure situations. McFarland only has three pitches and he is not a hard thrower, so his ceiling seems limited, but he will be converted back to a starting role entering spring training. The Orioles are no longer required to keep McFarland on the MLB roster and his most likely destination is Triple-A for the start of the season.
