2014

Medina was not on the radar in spring training last year but ended up pitching a team-high 68 relief innings in 2013. While he posted a solid strikeout rate, Medina's 2.91 ERA was probably something of a fluke. He stranded nearly 80 percent of his runners and had a .267 BABIP neither of which is likely to be repeated and his FIP was 4.01. Medina's good luck also covered for his poor control. Even accounting for his seven intentional walks, he still walked 33 batters for a 4.4 BB/9. A groundball pitcher with a mid-90s fastball who is equally tough on both sides of the plate, it's easy to see why the Mariners increasingly used Medina in a higher-leverage situations last year. If he doesn't conquer his control, walks likely will bite him this season if his luck changes.
