2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Sadler pitched well as a starter for Triple-A Indianapolis in 2014, but was unable to leverage that success into much at the big-league level. The right-hander compiled an 11-4 record with a 3.03 ERA and 1.19 WHIP in 124.2 frames for Indy. He had a tough time getting anyone out in the majors, allowing 12 hits, five walks and nine earned runs in 10.1 innings. Sadler is more of a possible swingman, making the occasional spot start while being used primarily out of the bullpen. While he is unlikely to get a crack at Pittsburgh's rotation in April, Sadler could make a midseason appearance when injuries strike.

2014

Pittsburgh added Sadler to its 40-man roster in November, showing that the organization may have plans for the 23-year-old righty. He registered a 3.31 ERA in 130.1 innings for Double-A Altoona in 2013, but his 67:42 K:BB ratio did little to excite fantasy owners. The Pirates changed Sadler from reliever to starter in the middle of the 2012 season, so there's reason to expect continued gains from him. The 6-foot-4, 190-pound hurler uses a pitch-to-contact, groundball style to retire hitters, something that dovetails nicely with the organization's defensive shifting strategy. From a fantasy perspective, Sadler's peripherals leave little for fantasy owners to get excited about.
