RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Austin Voth.
After putting himself on the prospect radar in 2014, Voth solidified his status with a strong 2015 campaign at Double-A. Like Tanner Roark, Voth doesn't have the kind of stuff that makes scouts salivate, but he has good command of a fastball that can occasionally touch the mid-90s along with a plus curveball and developing change. His velocity can waver, though, putting him potentially on a path to the bullpen in the majors rather than the back of the rotation, especially given the competition rising through the Nationals system alongside him. Voth will begin the season at Triple-A and he's not yet on the 40-man roster, so he's a little less likely to get a crack at the majors in 2016 than you might expect, but injuries or underperformance could give him his first shot at the big leagues in the second half.
Drafted in the fifth round in 2013, Voth made a lot of scouts sit up and take notice with some truly outstanding numbers at Low-A and High-A last year, posting a combined 2.10 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 114:29 K:BB ratio in 107.1 innings between the two levels. The 22-year-old right-hander stumbled at Double-A, and he doesn't have an outstanding fastball, typically sitting in the low 90s while occasionally touching 96, but he already shows strong command and control and his power curve and changeup are both potentially plus pitches down the road. If he can build up his frame and generate more consistent velocity, he could solidify a spot as a potential future member of the Nationals' rotation just behind Lucas Giolito and A.J. Cole, but even if he doesn't, Tanner Roark is currently showing what can be done with an arsenal and skill set similar to Voth's. He's not a high-ceiling prospect, but he is an intriguing one.
