2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

After a couple non-noteworthy seasons, Cotham was terrific in the minors last year, pitching to a 1.74 ERA with 30 strikeouts in 31 innings with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, good enough to earn a promotion to the major leagues. His success didn't carry over to the majors though, as he struggled to the tune of a 6.52 ERA in 12 appearances, but he continued to make hitters swing and miss (12 strikeouts in 9.2 innings). The 28-year-old was never particularly high on prospect rankings, but after his impressive performance in the minors and trade to the Reds in the Aroldis Chapman deal, he may get a chance to compete for a spot in the major league bullpen during spring training. Even if Cotham does make the Opening Day roster, he's a long shot to work high-leverage innings at any point in 2016.
