RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

There was no outlook written for Joe Palumbo.

2017

A run of seven starts to close out the season morphed Palumbo from fringe prospect to stealth high-upside arm in the lower levels of the Rangers' system. He went five-plus innings in all seven starts and posted a 2.37 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 39:10 K:BB in 38 innings after switching roles from closer to ace at Low-A. A slender 6-foot-1, Palumbo does not cut the figure of a traditional starter, which is perhaps why he began his professional career as a reliever and continued in that role for his first 26 appearances in 2016. However, he has a mid-90s fastball, a plus curveball and developing changeup, so his repertoire may be able to consistently turn over a lineup. Palumbo, a 30th-round selection in 2013, cut his walk rate from 14.3 percent in 2015 to 9.1 percent last year, which strengthens the notion that he could make it as a starter with continued refinement. He won't be under the radar much longer if his success as a starter continues at High-A High Desert.
