RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Newcomb walked 71 Southern League hitters in 140 innings. To put that in perspective, only 16 MLB pitchers walked that many hitters in 2016, and only two of them (Ubaldo Jimenez and Francisco Liriano) failed to top 170 innings. Sure, Newcomb is not a finished product, but this is the second offseason in a row where "control issues" needed to be a part of the first sentence of his outlook. Nobody doubts the big lefty's stuff -- a mid-90s fastball and hammer curveball stand out in his repertoire. However, with each passing year, the notion that he may be better suited for relief gains more credence. He will turn 24 in June, so this seems like a potential make-or-break year for him to improve his control to the point that he would be more valuable to Atlanta taking the ball every fifth day, rather than embarrassing hitters in high-leverage spots out of the bullpen.

2016

Newcomb convincingly demonstrated last season that he is one of the premier bat-missers in the minor leagues. The 6-foot-5, 240-pound southpaw fanned 168 over 136 innings across three levels, and posted K rates above 30 percent at Low-A and High-A before finishing the season at Double-A. Hitters in the lower levels were clearly no match for Newcomb, as he put up video game numbers before getting a truer test in the Texas League. He still put up a sterling 2.75 ERA In seven starts (36 innings) at Double-A Arkansas, but his 39:24 K:BB is a bit concerning. He headlined the package Atlanta received from the Angels for Andrelton Simmons during the offseason, but that trade does not noticeably affect his stock in dynasty leagues. There’s no denying Newcomb’s repertoire, with an easy plus fastball and a slider and changeup that can both flash plus. However, his control is fringe average at best, which adds a significant amount of risk to the profile.

2015

A first-round pick by the Angels in the 2014 draft, Newcomb has begun a quick ascension through the minor leagues, as he threw just three innings in rookie ball before being promoted to Low-A Burlington. While he did not perform well overall in his first taste of professional baseball, he did feature impressive punchout rates, tallying 18 strikeouts in 14.2 innings in time split between the two levels. Newcomb is considered a high-ceiling prospect, as he has a repertoire that consists of four pitches, including a mid-90s fastball and a curveball, which could develop into a plus offering. The 21-year-old has had some control issues, and will likely benefit from a tweak to his mechanics, but was able to lower his walk rate from 4.6 BB/9 in 2013 to 3.7 BB/9 during his final season at the University of Hartford.
