RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Abad was a trade-deadline acquisition by the Red Sox, who were in need of another lefty out of the bullpen. In his first game for Boston, he surrendered a three-run homer to Seattle's Robinson Cano and never fully recovered. He allowed nine runs on 13 hits (two homers) and eight walks in 12.2 innings with Boston and was left off the postseason roster. The sterling year he had with Oakland in 2014 (1.57 ERA) is looking like an outlier. His walk rate has increased in each successive season, an ominous sign for a reliever. There's always a need for lefty arms, particularly ones with these kinds of numbers against same-handed batters: .153 BAA, .195 OBP in 2016. The Red Sox tendered him a contract for 2017 but Abad will need better results to maintain a steady role.

2016

Abad struggled throughout 2015, posting a 4.15 ERA after a sparkling 1.57 ERA in 2014. While his strikeout rate jumped to 8.5 K/9, his walk rate also jumped over a walk per inning up to 3.6 BB/9. The lefty could not keep the ball in the park, allowing 11 bombs over only 47.2 innings. He also had difficulties with lefties, allowing a .859 OPS and seven homers as he went from a guy with no platoon splits to reverse platoon splits. Abad will be in the mix for a spot in the Minnesota bullpen after signing a minor league contract with the Twins, but he'll need to find his 2014 form to stick in the big leagues.

2015

Abad spent his entire season in the majors in 2014 and responded with an excellent campaign in relief for the A's, compiling a 1.57 ERA over 57.1 innings. He excelled when he was asked to come in with men on base, not allowing an inherited runner to score until late August, and he ended the season having allowed only 13% of his inherited runners to score. Abad's lack of a strong platoon split, especially as a lefty, adds to his value as he fared well against righties (.475 OPS) and lefties (.527 OPS) in 2014. He figures to be one of the primary left-handed setup men in the A's bullpen in 2015.

2014

Abad put up decent overall numbers in the Nationals bullpen in 2013, but he wasn't particularly effective as a LOOGY (.790 OPS vs. lefties, .619 vs. righties) and got dealt to the A's in the offseason. He'll likely fill a similar role in Oakland.

2011

Abad got some big league exposure as a left-handed arm out of the bullpen, finding his way into 22 games in 2010. He showed good strikeout numbers in the low minors, but has seen his strikeout rate steadily decline as he has moved up the ladder. He's got a shot to break camp with the team, but will likely find himself ironing out the kinks in the minors to start the season.
