2013 After several false starts, Roenicke finally stuck in the big leagues for an entire season. His ERA for the Rockies was shiny in 2012 thanks to a staff-high eight unearned runs, but the peripherals told a different story: too many walks, not enough strikeouts. His fastball is hard but straight, and when his breaking ball flattens . . . well, Giancarlo Stanton pounded one for the longest home run in MLB since 2009. Hitters had greater success against Roenicke in the second half, a trend that is likely to continue due to a lack of both stuff and command.
2012 Although Josh Roenicke has posted nice strikeout numbers in the minors, his control wavers, and the rest of his game isn't good enough for him to get away with that at the big-league level.
2011 Roenicke is no doubt very familiar with the flight route between Las Vegas and Toronto, as he made the trip four times during 2010. He doesnít bring anything to the table that isnít also offered by countless other team-controlled pitchers on the Blue Jays' 40-man roster, except perhaps for a faster fastball. Roenicke's control is prone to abandoning him, his slider is middling, and he hasnít been able to cash in on the opportunities heís been given. If he washes out with the Blue Jays, perhaps his Uncle Ron will give him a spin in Milwaukee.
2010 Ronís kid has a mid-90s fastball thatís straight and a slider thatís nothing special. He also got off to a late start after spending four full years as an outfielder at UCLA, thus he has just three full professional seasons under his belt at age 27, and they comprise the vast majority of his pitching experience. Roenicke flat-out dominated the International League over 27 appearances last year, walking just six and not allowing a home run while striking out 32 in 28 innings, but got a little wild after being flipped to Toronto in the Scott Rolen deal. Heíll try to fight his way up the Jaysí bullpen hierarchy this year, but heíll need a pitch that moves to have any sustained success in the majors.
2009 Roenicke was primarily an outfielder in collegeólike his father and uncle, former major leaguers Ron and Garyówho the Reds drafted in 2006 as a reliever. With a fastball that hits 98 mph, Roenicke is one of the hardest throwers in the organization, and he complements his heat with a power slider. He should get a shot to make the bullpen this season, and could eventually succeed Cordero as closer.

DateQuestionAnswer
2010-03-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)Who gets the high lev situations in the Toronto pen? John Perrotto reports Frasor perhaps heading to the Cubs.
(Neko Case from Toronto)
Which I'd find heartily amusing, since we all know where Kevin Gregg is at present. I'd anticipate that there will be some element of job-sharing involved, with Gregg, Frasor (if he's there), and Scott Downs all getting save opportunities. Later in the year, I wouldn't be surprised to see Josh Roenicke cadging save ops. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-07-31 14:00:00 (link to chat)Zach Stewart, Josh Roenicke, and Edwin Encarnacion...what is your opinion of the trio?
(Shawn from Winnipeg)
I have no idea what to make of Encarnacion any longer, but he's worth taking a flyer on. Stewart might be a high-leverage reliever pretty soon, but he has some command issues. The main gain here is whatever financial savings occur. (Joe Sheehan)
