RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Dillon Tate.
Tate was selected with the fourth overall pick in the 2015 draft by the Rangers. The UC Santa Barbara standout didn't quite have the expected polish, though, and saw his velocity dip as a starter at Low-A to begin the 2016 campaign. Tate also battled a hamstring injury, limping to a 5.12 ERA in 65 innings. Opposing batters hit .311 against the 22-year-old righty, who was unable to strike out one batter per inning. His control was also suspect, as he walked 27 batters in those 65 innings. Tate was eventually dealt to the Yankees in the Carlos Beltran trade, where he finished the season in the bullpen with better success. Tate was a closer in college, and it remains to be seen if the Yankees will continue developing him as a starter. Regardless of his role, Tate's live arm still possesses plenty of upside. Still, he needs to improve his changeup as well as his command to remain a viable starting option.
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.
