2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Though Strop did not help move the needle in a pennant race, few pitchers took more advantage of a change in scenery last year. His 22.1 innings with the Orioles included a forgettable 7.25 ERA, among other atrocities, but three great post-trade months with the Cubs have Strop possibly in a position to close this year. In 35 innings with the Cubs, he had an outstanding 42:11 K:BB ratio and a low strand rate of 63.6%, suggesting that he might have actually been a bit unlucky. The Cubs should be looking for bullpen help during the offseason, but with Kevin Gregg now gone, Strop could be their top closing option. Don't forget him on draft day.

2013

Strop spent most of the 2012 season as the primary setup man for Jim Johnson and he used his fastball-slider combo to churn out a 1.67 ERA and 1.19 WHIP for the first half. He slipped some in the second half, but the Orioles are rumored to think that Strop is a closer in waiting. Strop averaged nearly 97 mph on his fastball, up from 94 mph in 2011. If Strop can cut down on his walk rate (5.0 BB/9) he could inch toward his potential as a future ninth-inning option.

2012

Strop, who was traded from the Rangers to the Orioles midseason, really settled in after the move, posting a 0.73 ERA in 12 appearances with Baltimore. Still, the same control issues which have defined his career have lingered. He had a 4.09 BB/9IP for the whole season and owns a 5.67 career mark. If he can find the strike zone, his strikeout numbers could carry him to usefulness (9.30 K/9IP), but for now he is still a work in progress

2011

Strop shuttled back and forth between Triple-A Oklahoma City and the majors last season, posting poor numbers with Texas (10.2 innings, 17 hits, 12 earned runs, 11:11 K:BB) and excellent numbers in the minors (42.1 innings, 32 hits, nine earned runs, 57:14 K:BB). Whether he'll be able to translate his minor-league success into something serviceable in the majors remains to be seen.

2010

Strop showed limited upside, getting sent down to Double-A Frisco after getting bombed early on at Triple-A Oklahoma City. His numbers at Double-A Frisco (51.1 innings, 48 hits, 48:29 K:BB) weren't good, and the promise he showed back in 2007 at Single-A (54.2 innings, 75 K) after being converted from a shortstop may have been left on the operating table back in 2008 when he underwent surgery for an elbow fracture.
