RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

There was no outlook written for Brady Aiken.

2017

Aiken undoubtedly appeals to a certain type of dynasty league owner. He oozes pedigree (17th overall pick) and is more projection than substance. The risk is through the roof, but if he comes close to hitting his ceiling, then he is a No. 1 or No. 2 starter. A more conservative owner would look at his uneven production in his first year back from Tommy John surgery, factor in that he is roughly three or four years away from sniffing the majors, and conclude that there are better ways to use a minor league roster spot. Fastball velocity and command will determine which outlook is correct. Aiken was sitting 89-91 mph with the pitch in 2016 as he worked on rebuilding arm strength. He also struggled to command the pitch. If he adds a couple ticks to his heater and demonstrates average or better command in his second season as a pro, then Aiken could finish the season as one of the top pitching prospects in the game. If not, the intrigue that surrounds his prospect star will start to give way to fatigue.

2016

The No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 draft slipped to the Indians at No. 17 in last yearís draft after predictably needing Tommy John surgery in March. Everyone is familiar with Aikenís story at this point, and it is encouraging that he was able to throw off flat ground in October. Aiken has the prototypical frontline starter package (minus the clean bill of health), with good size and athleticism, three potentially plus pitches and he happens to be left-handed. Indeed, itís the type of package that could result in Aiken taking a similar path up prospect lists as Lucas Giolito and Jeff Hoffman ó two prospects whose draft-day value was hurt by pre-draft UCL surgery. Of course, Aiken, 19, will need to show that his stuff and command has returned to form when he returns to the mound in 2016, but if that happens, he could put up gaudy numbers in the lower levels, at which point the hype train will have left the station.
