RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Claimed off waivers by the Astros last November, Harris performed well for the team during spring training and secured a spot on the Opening Day roster. Overshadowed by free agent signees Luke Gregerson and Pat Neshek, the 31-year-old right-hander flew under the radar early in the year, but finished the season with the most appearances among Houston's pitchers (68). Harris easily had his best season as a pro in 2015, likely earning him a similar role out of the bullpen in 2016.

2015

The Diamondbacks had plenty go wrong in 2014, but the emergence of several useful arms in the bullpen was among the pleasant surprises. The 30-year-old Harris was part of that cast, but his advanced age made the team willing to part with him at season's end. With a low-90s fastball and a curveball, he profiles as a middle reliever at this stage. If nothing else, Harris is a good story after spending the better part of seven years ascending through the Rockies' farm system before getting his first look in the big leagues in 2012. Last season, he carried a 29.2% strikeout rate and showed steady control (7.5% BB%), prompting the Astros to claim him off waivers. Look for Harris to get an opportunity to secure an Opening Day roster spot with Houston during spring training.

2014

Harris was great out of the bullpen for the 2013 Diamondbacks, finishing the year with a 2.91 ERA and a 9.1 K/9. The righty is not a likely candidate to close in 2014, but those strikeout rates will always keep him in the discussion in the case of injury, and he brings good control (2.6 BB/9) to the table along with the aforementioned ability to miss bats. With David Hernandez and J.J. Putz coming off of disappointing seasons, Harris' chances of seeing time in the ninth inning in 2014 are not as remote as they might seem at first glance.

2013

After performing some nice middle-relief work at Double-A and Triple-A earlier last season, Harris was rewarded with his first taste of the big leagues. Unfortunately for Harris, he was hit hard upon on arrival, allowing 16 runs on 27 hits over 20 appearances. Now that the Rockies have their full complement of relievers in tow to begin the season, expect Harris to head to Triple-A and be on call in the event of an injury to a reliever.
