RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Josh Staumont.
Staumont has an 80-grade fastball, a plus curveball, shaky command, and no reliable third pitch. He could probably skip Triple-A and thrive in the Royals' bullpen for all of 2017, as his stuff is that good. However, the move to a full-time relief role should be put on hold for at least another year, given how tantalizing his tools are. In addition to having two monster pitches, he has a starter's body and is entering his age-23 season while already having 50.1 innings at Double-A under his belt. If his changeup can become at all serviceable and he can develop fringe-average command, Staumont could be a No. 2 starter. He showed some encouraging signs down the stretch, posting a 1.84 ERA and 49:10 K:BB in 29.1 innings over his final five starts -- two of which came in the Texas League playoffs.
