RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

There was no outlook written for Ray Black.

2017

The oft-injured flamethrower finished the 2016 campaign in a familiar place, on the disabled list. The Giants moved him to the 60-day DL after he proved ineffective at Double-A Richmond, posting a 4.88 ERA in 35 appearances out of the bullpen. The reason the Giants keep rolling Black out there despite an atrocious 7.2 BB/9 career mark is his strikeout potential (17.2 K/9) and ability to hit triple digits with his fastball. It is also the reason they moved him to the 60-day DL when they needed roster space; they did not want other teams claiming Black off of waivers in case he finally figured out how to control his overpowering arsenal. Even though the Giants struggled closing out games in 2016, it is unlikely they call up Black until he gets his minor league walk rate down to a reasonable level.

2016

Black put up some eye-opening numbers with High-A San Jose in 2015. This should come as no surprise from a guy who can throw 103 mph. Black finished with a solid 2.88 ERA to go along with a ridiculous 18.4 K/9 (after posting an 18.1 K/9 in 2014), but also managed to walk a batter per inning. He is obviously all "stuff" at this point, and he will need to bring that horrendous walk rate down even if it is at the expense of some strikeouts if Black wants to sniff the majors this season. While he started five games last season, he projects more as a mid-to-late inning reliever. Look for him to begin the 2016 season in the minors despite being added to the 40-man roster in November.
