2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

The Mariners envisioned Furbush as a starter when they acquired him from Detroit mid-2011 but sent him to the bullpen last year to take advantage of his lefty-on-lefty dominance. Funny thing, though, he was nearly as effective on right-handed batters as he was on lefties last season. He held southpaws to a .147 average and did not allow a home run in 75 at-bats. Right-handers managed a .198 average and three homers in 86 at-bats, a vast improvement after allowing 14 homers in 238 right-handed at-bats in 2011. Furbush has good control (2.3 UBB/9) and strikes out more than 10 per nine innings despite only pitching in the low 90s. He'll join Lucas Luetge in the late-inning lefty role again this season.

2012

Furbush arrived in Seattle last season via trade from Detroit and brought his severe home/road split with him. As was the case in pitcher-friendly Comerica, spacious Safeco was a safe-haven for Furbush as his ERA was more than five runs greater on the road in an equal number of starts. The 6-5 lefty throws in the low-90s, but saw his velocity wane down the stretch last season as he relied on a good breaking ball and good changeup to put away hitters. He also had trouble with right-hander batters, who hit 14 of the 16 homers Furbush allowed. Furbush mainly pitched in relief for the Tigers, but the Mariners see him as a starter, and he'll likely get the chance to compete for a back-of-the-rotation spot in spring training. A 7.1 K/9IP and 2.33 K/BB from last season will work as a starter, but he needs to figure out the road.

2011

Furbush broke out during the 2010 season, finishing 8-9 with a 4.25 ERA and 183 strikeouts in 159 innings spread out between three stops in the minors. The tall (6-5) lefty doesn't overpower hitters, but he has a solid breaking ball and changeup that keep hitters off balance. The Tigers will give Furbush a chance to compete for a roster spot in spring training, but it could end up being as a long reliever at first as the team evaluates his long-term potential at the major league level.

2008

Furbush, a 6-5, 215-pound left-hander from LSU, was Detroit's fourth-round pick last season. He had a solid debut in the minors and handled a promotion to Low-A West Michigan without missing a beat. His 69:14 K:BB ratio in 61.2 innings indicate Furbush is ready to move to High-A this year and maybe even to Double-A at some point. As he moves up the chain, we'll have a better idea if he is a legitimate prospect or if he was just dominating younger, inexperienced hitters last year.
