RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

In his first full season with Triple-A Omaha, Alexander was impressive. The left-hander posted a sparkling 2.56 ERA and 1.03 WHIP to go with 14 saves in 63.1 innings. This led to a September callup for Alexander, where he saw some difficulties. He had some control issues, as he walked three batters, hit one and uncorked a wild pitch in only six innings. The 26-year-old had two scoreless outings, but his other two appearances lifted his ERA to 4.50 and his WHIP to 1.33. With the Royals bullpen already housing two left-handers and overall depth, it will be tough for Alexander to crack the 25-man roster, although his success in the minor leagues and spot on the 40-man make him an obvious fill-in option should anyone get hurt.
