2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Tonkin has a chance to win a setup role this spring after a strong season at Triple-A and reassuring September callup. He struggled when called up to the majors in April and May (5.84 ERA and 9:6 K:BB ratio), but thrived at Triple-A with a 2.80 ERA and 9.2 K/9. When back in the majors in September he improved with a 2.70 ERA and seven strikeouts in seven innings with no walks. Tonkin features a mid-90s fastball that would be welcomed in a bullpen that has lacked velocity. He's also shown good control in the minors. Tonkin could quickly become one of the top setup men with the Twins in 2015 as a result.

2014

Tonkin is a late bloomer who came on strong in the minors the past three seasons with outstanding strikeout rates and a mid-90s fastball. He began last season in Double-A, but aced his second trip to the level and then also posted a strong strikeout rate while showing good control at Triple-A. After he was called up in September he struck out 10 batters in 11.1 innings and did not give up an earned run until his ninth and final appearance with the Twins. Despite his fastball velocity (94.4 mph), Tonkin's age (24) could limit his upside, and he did give up five unearned runs with the Twins last year. Still, he could win a high-leverage role in Minnesota's bullpen with a strong spring.
