RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Rzepczynski has stabilized as a quality left-handed reliever, and he should remain a part of the late-inning arsenal for manager Terry Francona in 2015. During his first run as a big leaguer last season, Rzepczynski struck out a batter per inning, but he continues to give up a significant number of free passes. Fortunately, he's able to minimize the damage of the walks by getting a lot of outs on the ground (59.7% GB% last season, career 56.6%). While he's garnered more nicknames than the typical LOOGY, Rzepczynski (he prefers “Zep” to “Scrabble” and “Eye Chart”) should remain gainfully employed in the big leagues as long as he continues to dominate left-handed hitters, after he fanned them at a 28.7% rate and held them to a combined .180/.241/.200 line last season.

2014

Rzepczynski spent most of the season with the Cardinals before joining the Indians in a deadline deal in July. He struggled with the Cardinals and spent some time at Triple-A Memphis, but served the Indians well down the stretch (0.89 ERA, 0.84 WHIP, 8.9 K/9 in 20.1 innings) while carving up lefties (.179/.230/.250 in 62 plate appearances overall). He'll be back as one of the team's late-inning southpaws out of the bullpen, as at this stage of his career, the days of being a starter are officially over for Rzepczynski. That's 40 Scrabble points for the curious.

2013

The man they call "Scrabble" has pitched in at least 70 games in both of the last two seasons, but as a LOOGY he's barely surpassed 100 IP during that timeframe. If your league counts holds, note that Rzepcynski had 18 in both 2011 and 2012, but there really isn't anything else to offer from a fantasy standpoint.

2012

Before tiring a bit down the stretch, Rzepczynski pitched pretty well for the champs, but when you take a LOOGY and then suddenly pitch him two or three innings, those are the types of results you might get. He was active in the postseason, including four scoreless appearances in the World Series. It seems likely that new manager Mike Matheny will move him back to shorter appearances again this season. The full-time move to the NL might help, but even with improved rate stats he won't be in a role to help most in traditional roto formats.

2011

Rzepczynski saw his chances to crack the starting rotation out of spring training last season end when a comebacker fractured a finger on his pitching hand, and he got off to a late start as a result. He bounced around Toronto and Triple-A Las Vegas, eventually making a dozen starts for the Jays. He continues to struggle with his control (4.3 BB/9 in 125 big-league innings), and he'll need to iron that out to take the next step forward. He offers some upside in formats that count strikeouts and figures to compete with Kyle Drabek and Jesse Litsch for one of two open spots at the back of the Jays' rotation.

2010

Rzepczynski earned a promotion to Triple-A Las Vegas after a quick start at Double-A New Hampshire (7-5, 2.93 ERA and a league-leading 88 K at the time of his promotion). He was excellent in two starts at Triple-A and found himself thrust into the Toronto rotation in early July. He pitched pretty well for the Jays (3.67 ERA, 1.321 WHIP and 60 K in 61.1 innings) once he arrived. His ultimate success will hinge on his command as he's always struggled with his control. He'll battle for a rotation spot this spring.
