RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Todd Van Poppel.
Van Poppel is versatile enough to hurt you as either a starter or as a reliever. He's had brief glimpses of mediocrity, but he's been sufficiently marginalized so as to prevent you from the temptation of adding him as a flier in the late rounds of your draft.
Van Poppel showed some signs of competence as a starter towards the end of the season, getting four starts with the Reds in September. Two caveats about putting too much stock in those four starts: two of those starts came against a bare-bones Pirates lineup, and Van Poppel's home run rate is still rather high.
Van Poppel's peripherals (80 hits, 85 strikeouts in 72.2 innings) suggest something better than the 5.45 ERA he posted. He was terrible after the All-Star break, posting a 6.82 ERA and yielding eight home runs in just 33 innings, though his strikeout rate jumped dramatically (50 Ks in 33 innings, compared to just 35 in 39.2 innings before the break). Some hidden value here that should emerge in 2003.
