RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Baez remained one of the most frustrating players in baseball with his 2016 campaign, especially for believers in his ability to hold down a late-inning role and Dodger fans hoping to get home before midnight. On the surface, a season of 74 innings, a 3.04 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 83 strikeouts is excellent. He had stretches where he was nearly unhittable, easily breezing high-90s fastballs past hitters. But then, the wheels would come off. His game slowed down to the point of registering the slowest pitching pace in baseball (min. 50 innings) and he seemed incapable of throwing quality strikes at times. Things eventually got bad enough that the Dodgers optioned him to Double-A Tulsa, but he turned it around there and posted a scoreless September after returning to the majors. Baez could be next in line to take over at closer if Kenley Jansen is hurt, but he is an extremely volatile asset.

2016

Baez had an up and down 2015, but ultimately finished with a 3.35 ERA and 1.14 WHIP in 51 innings. A fastball that often found its way into the upper-90s allowed Baez to post a 10.6 K/9 to go with excellent control (1.9 BB/9). A 5.79 ERA in September was followed by an outing in the NLDS in which Baez surrendered three runs to the Mets without recording an out. Prior to that, however, Baez had a 2.95 ERA on August 31, so there's something to build on here. He also allowed just one run in his final eight regular-season innings, so it wasn't a complete meltdown. Baez has swing-and-miss stuff as evidenced by a 15 percent swinging-strike rate (league average was 9.9%) and he could develop into a closer in time. Refining his slider and improving his command should top his to-do list this spring, but barring a poor March, he should have a place in the team's bullpen on Opening Day.

2015

Baez started his 2014 season at Double-A, but finished in Los Angeles while serving as a surprising stabilizing presence for Dodgers manager Don Mattingly. The recipe in his debut was a heavy volume of fastballs, as Baez fired the pitch at an 81% clip last season. With plenty of velocity (95.3 mph average), it's understandable that he leans on the offering, but Baez needs to more effectively utilize his slider or changeup in order to generate more strikeouts. Fortunately, he kept his walk rate down -- both at Triple-A and in the big leagues -- but something will have to give in terms of skills growth if he's going to sustain a sub-3.00 ERA with those peripherals. Baez carried an 83.3% LOB% (his range was 70.5-77.1% in the minors) and a .197 BABIP, which suggest an ERA much closer to his 2014 xFIP (3.96) than the 2.63 he delivered in his debut.

2008

Signed out of the Dominican Republic for $200,000 in 2007, Baez has quickly emerged as one of the organization's top prospects. He's only 19 and his .274/.341/.408 line in rookie ball is rather modest, but he's already demonstrated excellent defensive skills and power to all fields. Baez is several years from the majors, but if he can improve his plate discipline and grow into his body, he could be another nice find by the Dodgers.
