RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

There was no outlook written for Tom Wilhelmsen.

2017

After a shaky 2015 season in Seattle, Wilhelmsen was dealt to the Rangers to help fortify their bullpen. Unfortunately for all parties involved, the right-hander did the exact opposite, as he posted a disastrous 10.55 ERA and 2.20 WHIP in 21.1 innings. This led the Rangers to cut ties with the veteran early in the season. Then, against most conventional thinking, the Mariners decided to reunite with the 32-year-old and add him to their bullpen. The results of this were somewhat better, as he sported a 3.60 ERA and 1.28 WHIP after 25 innings pitched, but his peripherals suggested otherwise: his FIP sat at a paltry 5.12 mark, his HR/9 climbed north of 1.4, and his K:BB was a meager 28:19. Wilhelmsen's disappointing performance got him released once again, and unless he can start to exhibit any command over his offerings, it will be tough for him to climb back to fantasy relevance ever again, especially with Father Time working against him. The Diamondbacks took a flier on him during the offseason, which could offer him another chance at major league innings given their unsettled bullpen situation.

2016

A hyperextended elbow that cost him a month and first-half struggles that resulted in a demotion to Triple-A made it all the more improbable that Wilhelmsen became the Seattle closer by mid-August last season. The team's closer a couple years earlier before flaming out, Wilhelmsen converted 13 of 15 save opportunities, but he was highly inefficient as he allowed a baserunner in two-thirds of his chances. For the season, he had only 12 clean outings in 53 appearances, due in large part to a 4.21 BB/9 that resulted in a 1.37 WHIP. Wilhelmsen still has a mid-90s fastball and can pitch in any role, including spot start, but he allowed an MLB-high 62.1 percent of his inherited runners to score (18 of 29) last season. He was traded to the Rangers in November where he likely will compete for a set-up job in front of closer Shawn Tolleson.

2015

Wilhelmsen's best attribute might be his versatility. The one-time closer pitched mostly in long relief last season, but he can be used in late innings if needed and he even made a couple of spot starts last year. His control improved slightly from his disappointing 2013, but it still wasn't good, and his .171 BAA was aided by a .213 BABIP. Wilhelmsen does still have a mid-90s fastball, however, and he generates plenty of groundballs to be effective. He stranded 21 of 24 inherited runners last season. Wilhelmsen is no longer in the closer-in-waiting conversation, but he'll have a role in the bullpen, likely again in long relief, coming out of spring.

2014

As Seattle's closer, the Bartender lived a Cinderella story. And then midnight came, and he turned into a gas can. In just about a calendar year of ninth-inning duty, Wilhelmsen posted a 1.36 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and .156 BAA. Then, overnight, he lost command of his high-90s fastball, lost control of his once-nasty slider and, worst of all, lost his confidence. Beginning in late May, over his next 27 outings, he gave up twice as many runs (22) as he did in his previous 68 outings (11). In those 25.1 innings, he walked 20 and struck out 18, losing his closer job before eventually earning a trip to Triple-A Tacoma. Wilhelmsen's trouble didn't disappear in the minors, either, as the right-hander was knocked around for 14 runs in 12 innings (10.50 ERA). He wasn't much better when he returned to Seattle in September. Where he stands entering this season is uncertain, but unless he regains the edge that had him pitching near an All-Star level, he won't see the ninth inning again.

2013

The Bartender's story is well known, and Wilhelmsen only added to the legend last season when he took over for Brandon League as closer in early June and proceeded to save 29 games. His high-90s fastball helped him post a 1.76 ERA as the closer with a .163 BAA. The Mariners have two fireballing right-handers to set up for Wilhelmsen in Stephen Pryor and Carter Capps. If either looks like he could thrive in the closer role, it could make Wilhelmsen a trade candidate. Otherwise, Wilhelmsen will return to ninth-inning duty in 2013 looking to add another chapter to his remarkable story.

2012

Drafted in 2002, out of baseball from 2003-2009, Wilhelmsen made his major league debut last season after his high-90s fastball earned him a spot in the Mariners bullpen in spring training. Wilhelmsen struck out 30 in 32.2 innings last season, mostly in a middle-relief/mop-up role. After a mid-season demotion to Double-A Jackson to work as a starter, he returned still a reliever and finished the season strong, allowing two runs in his last 18.1 innings (14 games) with 20 strikeouts and one walk. Wilhelmsen could find his way into a late-inning job this season as the Mariners dumped a few bullpen arms in the offseason. If so, a setup man with a high-90s fastball is worth keeping an eye on.

2003
