RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
2017
2016
  1. Branden Pinder 2017 Preseason Outlook
    Pinder enjoyed a surprisingly good 2015 stint with the Yankees (8.13 K/9). He was sent down to the minors toward the end of last spring training but didn't take long to earn his way up to the big league bullpen, as he got the call after two scoreless appearances at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. His season ended shortly after that, though, as he tore his UCL in his first game and underwent Tommy John surgery toward the end of April, putting his status for the start of 2017 in jeopardy. The 27-year-old has been an effective strikeout pitcher across most levels, mixing in a 95 mph fastball with a wipeout slider, but he's also frequently handed out too many free passes. Given the standard timetable for Tommy John surgery recovery, Pinder will probably be out until around the All-Star break. The Yankees designated him for assignment to free up space on the 40-man roster this offseason.
  2. Branden Pinder 2016 Preseason Outlook
    Pinder leveraged a strong 2014 at the lower levels into beginning the 2015 season with the Triple-A team, where he pitched to a 2.80 ERA with 36 strikeouts in 35.1 innings. Though the big league club rotated several young arms at the back of their bullpen, Pinder quickly established himself as one of the more reliable options after multiple trips back and forth between the majors and minors. The 26-year-old posted a 2.93 ERA with 25 strikeouts in 27.2 innings, but he allowed far too many runners to reach base – he allowed 28 hits and 14 walks en route to a 1.52 WHIP. The righty has a fastball that tops out at around 97 mph, usually sitting more in the 94-95 mph range, and has a slider that works as a legitimate strikeout pitch when effective. He still needs to work on his command a bit, as he owns a career BB/9 of 3.1 across all levels, but he could start out the year in a lower-leverage role out of the bullpen.
