RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

There was no outlook written for Roman Mendez.

2016

Mendez pitched for two organizations in 2015, starting out with Texas and finishing up with Boston, the team that initially signed him in 2007. The Red Sox claimed him off waivers in September at a time when they were desperate for arms and put him to use late in the season. Mendez had a combined 5.27 ERA in 15 games while walking eight batters in 13.2 innings at the major-league level. His control can get a bit wayward and he tends to give up fly balls. There will be openings in Bostonís bullpen, and while Mendez has a power arm they covet, the Red Sox have the money to sign experienced big-league relievers with track records. Boston is a big-market team that doesnít need to hope they strike gold with another organizationís castoff. Mendez is occupying a spot on the 40-man, but heís a prime candidate to be designated for assignment. The Red Sox wouldnít mind keeping him if he sneaks through waivers, but not at the cost of a spot on the 40-man.

2015

Mendez received his first opportunity to contribute in Texas in 2014, making 30 appearances and carrying numbers very similar to his performance at Double-A in 2012 and 2013. His control has wavered at times, and that was the case after the promotion, but Mendez benefitted from an 85.6% LOB and .194 BABIP, which allowed him to post an ERA nearly three runs lower than his xFIP (5.14). With options left and control issues to iron out, Mendez seems destined to begin 2015 at Triple-A, but he should be able to earn a promotion back to Texas when injuries strike if he can do a better job limiting the free passes.

2014

Mendez got off to a delayed start due to a stress fracture in his right elbow, but found varying levels of success at Double-A Frisco once healthy, and then had his season end in late May with a recurrence of the stress fracture in his throwing elbow. It's expected that he'll be ready to begin the season, likely out of the bullpen at Double-A Frisco again, with a chance for a promotion to Texas at some point in 2014 if things go well for him in the upper levels of the Rangers' system.

2010

Mendez, 19, has spent the last two years in developmental leagues after signing with the Boston organization as a 16-year-old international free agent out of the Dominican. He has a 92-94 mph fastball, which he can dial up to 96 when needed. His secondary offerings are still developing -- the arm speed of his changeup doesn't mimic his fastball enough -- and he'll need clean up his mechanics as he enters his first full season of professional baseball. He's still young and the Red Sox are waiting to see him fill out his frame.
