RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

There was no outlook written for Duane Underwood.

2017

Underwood continues to battle injury problems, most notably elbow ailments. The 22-year-old tossed just 73 innings in 2016 after throwing only 78.1 innings in 2015. The majority of innings for Underwood this past season came at Double-A Tennessee, where he posted a 4.91 ERA and 46:31 K:BB in 58.2 innings. Perhaps not surprising for a pitcher battling elbow issues and unable to stay on the field, Underwood struggled with his command. Those command problems have been prevalent throughout Underwood's professional career, but the lack of time on the mound certainly didn't help his cause. Underwood's stock has taken a bit of a nosedive entering the 2017 campaign, which will likely start at Double-A, assuming he is healthy. Despite being drafted in the second round in 2012, Underwood has never pitched more than 101 innings in a single season in the minors.

2016

Underwood, a second-round draft pick out of high school in 2012, missed almost two months of the season last year with an elbow injury. Fortunately it wasn't major damage to the elbow and the Cubs were able to play it safe, but the time on the shelf muted his breakout campaign. He started 14 games for High-A Myrtle Beach, posting a 2.58 ERA and 1.04 WHIP, but his strikeout rate was a shaky 5.9. Even more concerning is the strong season may have been fueled by a .225 BABIP - the low strikeout rate and low BABIP contributed to a mediocre 4.10 FIP. He's considered one of the better pitching prospects in the Cubs' system, but elbow discomfort limited him early in camp, so owners will need to cross their fingers and hope this doesn't develop into something that requires surgery.
