RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The first pitcher selected in last yearís draft (fourth overall), Tate is a difficult player to evaluate at this point, as it is completely unclear if he will be able to make it as a starter. He has a plus-plus heater and a hard slider that could be an out pitch at the highest level -- essentially the tools to be a shutdown reliever. However, given the investment the Rangers made in the 6-foot-2 righty, he will be developed as a starter for now. Tate, 21, allowed one run while striking out eight and walking three in nine innings (six appearances) across short-season and Low-A last year, but itís nearly impossible to draw anything from that, as they were one or two-inning appearances and the sample size is minuscule. If a third pitch comes along and Tate can show the ability to withstand a heavy workload, the Rangers could have a top-of-the-rotation starter, and if not, he has the realistic floor of an above-average big league closer.
