RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Serving as the closer for the Cardinals Triple-A affiliate in Memphis Tuivailala picked up 17 saves and 43 strikeouts in 45 innings, posting a 1.60 ERA and a 1.200 WHIP as a 22-year-old. That success led him to a few brief stints with the Cardinals where he threw 14.2 innings across 14 innings, posting a 3.07 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP while striking out an impressive 20 batters. Tuivailala still needs some fine-tuning in the minors but should see some time with the Cardinals again in 2016. His fastball can hit triple digits and is consistently in the high 90's, so if he can improve on his command and improve his secondary offerings he could be a big part of the Cardinals bullpen in the coming years.

2015

A converted infielder, Tuivailala found success as a flamethrower out of the bullpen, pitching well across three different levels of the Cardinals' system in 2014 before getting a September callup. Tuivailala only recorded three outs across two appearances for the Cardinals, but posted a 3.15 ERA and 1.25 WHIP in the minors in 2014, while striking out an impressive 97 batters in 60 innings. Entering 2015 as a 22-year-old, Tuivailala seems destined to head back to Triple-A for more seasoning at the start of the year, but injuries or poor pitching could open a spot for him if he keeps pitching well.
