2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Strickland finally put it all together and had a stellar rookie campaign with the Giants in 2015. At 27 years old, he is not your typical rookie arm, battling injury and control issues to finally make it to the majors. Strickland throws straight gas, averaging a tick under 97 mph on his fastball. The knock on him coming into the season was his lack of secondary pitches, which made him too predictable and susceptible to the longball (he gave up six home runs in eight postseason appearances in 2014). He appears to have fixed that flaw in his game, mixing in a breaking ball 24.2% of the time in 2015, which led to a modest 0.70 HR/9 allowed. With his overpowering fastball and improved control, Strickland has been labeled the Giants' closer of the future by some. While that opportunity may not come in 2016, he looks to have locked up a late-inning role in San Francisco's bullpen.

2015

The Giants trusted Strickland to handle critical spots in their bullpen during the playoffs, and he was tagged for a handful of key home runs while serving up six long balls in just 8.1 October innings. His story is one of perseverance, as Strickland has overcome shoulder and elbow injuries in his development to reach the big leagues for the first time just before turning 26 in September. Of course, his performance will largely be forgotten as the organization brought home a World Series title for the third time in five seasons anyway, but it will be interesting to see how he rebounds in 2015. Working with a high-90s fastball and slider, Strickland has the tools to be a dominant late-inning reliever, but he'll need to command his offerings more effectively to fully realize his potential.
