RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Josh Stinson.
Stinson worked for his third organization in the last three years and the Orioles were impressed with his work at Triple-A. That resulted in three stints at the MLB level, including a month-long audition when rosters expanded in September. Stinson's positive results are a bit of a surprise considering he is not a strikeout pitcher and he did not keep the ball on the ground as well as he has in the past. His 1.12 GO/AO from Triple-A in 2013 is not close to his typical 1.50 mark in seasons past. The Orioles may stretch him out to be a starter, but he is more likely to make the team as a reliever.
Stinson had a rough opening to the 2011 season at Triple-A Buffalo while being used as a starting pitcher, but found success in his more familiar relief role with Double-A Binghamton after a demotion. He went 4-3 with a 3.99 ERA and six saves in eight chances over 27 appearances (two starts) in the Eastern League. Stinson, who pitched in 14 games for the Mets, throws five pitches - fastball, sinker, curveball, slider and change-up - but usually relies on his fastball as a reliever. He likely will open 2012 back at Buffalo.
