On April 20, the White Sox ran up seven runs against Noesi when he was a reliever on the Rangers. They claimed him off waivers later that week, and he was in the White Sox's rotation by the end of the month. He stuck as a back-end starter for the remainder of the season, which may have been more attributable to the White Sox testing him out in a lost season rather than his actual ability. Noesi struck out more than twice as many batters than he walked in his time in the rotation, but also allowed a ton of home runs (27 in 27 starts). Nineteen of those home runs came at the homer-happy U.S. Cellular Field, so there could be room for improvement if he learns how to pitch to the park. It would also help if his 12.9% HR/FB rate regresses down a few percentage points. He enters 2015 with the inside edge for one of the final rotation spots in camp but could be a long-relief option if he can't re-earn his 2014 role.
After pitching his way out of a rotation spot in 2012, Noesi might have pitched his way out of a roster spot with last year's debacle. His spring was so bad, the Mariners sent him to Double-A Jackson out of camp. He made his way to Triple-A Tacoma and then bounced between the Rainiers and Mariners whenever the Seattle bullpen was desperate for an arm. His 5.89 ERA at Tacoma was the highlight as he posted a 6.59 ERA with the Mariners. Only three pitchers in baseball posted a higher WHIP than Noesi's 1.98 (min. 25 IP). A non-strikeout, pitch-to-contact hurler with shaky control does not spur much demand. Noesi is out of minor-league options, so it would be a surprise if he breaks camp with the Mariners in 2014.
In 18 starts last season, Noesi went 2-12 with a 6.24 ERA. That isn't a great resume builder for a rotation spot this season. Acquired in the Jesus Montero trade, Noesi exhibited excellent control in the minors, but in 52 career appearances he's posted a 3.37 BB/9 (3.29 last season). And he's prone to blowups as a pitch-to-contact hurler with limited strikeout ability (5.74 K/9 last season). As such, unless he blows the doors off everyone at spring training, he appears headed for Triple-A Tacoma this season.
Noesi will contend for a back-of-the-rotation spot for the Mariners in spring training after coming over from the Yankees in the Jesus Montero-Michael Pineda deal. Noesi doesn't show plus velocity, and has to rely on his control to succeed, walking just 28 in 160.1 innings as a starter in 2010 at Triple-A. He spent much of 2011 in the bullpen, but his lack of dominant stuff profiles more as a fourth or fifth starter. Still his excellent command could find success at pitcher-friendly Safeco Field.
Noesi, who will be 24 this season, spent time at all three levels of the minors in 2010, compiling an outstanding 153:28 K:BB ratio in 27 starts. He was unhyped upon entering the organization and sometimes flies under the radar in discussions of the Yankees' pitching prospects, but Noesi figures to begin the year at Triple-A and could make his major league debut as soon as this year. Although he still relies heavily on his two-seam and four-seam fastballs, his curveball is improving enough for him to project as an eventual back-end starter.
Noesi has rapidly advanced from unknown, unhyped prospect to one of the more promising arms in the Yankees’ system. Though he still relies heavily on his 90-94 mph fastball, Noesi honed his 12-to-6 curveball into an effective pitch last season, helping him post a ridiculous 40:4 K:BB ratio in nine starts at High-A Tampa. Though he’s a touch older than most high-end prospects at his level (23), his stuff indicates that he may not be too far removed from being able to contribute in the majors. His name will crop up as a potential trading chip, but if he stays he’ll likely begin the year at Double-A Trenton.
