2014

It's clear from the comments of GM Kevin Towers that the Diamondbacks are high on Stites, who is expected to compete in big league camp during spring training with a chance to become a late-inning option. Stites reaches 98 mph with his fastball and has a power breaking ball, which helped him handle both lefties and righties in the minors. He posted a 51:8 K:BB and 2.08 ERA over 52 innings as the closer for Double-A San Antonio in the Padres' organization in 2013 before an appendectomy ended his season. Traded to Arizona at the non-waiver deadline in July, Stites has the stuff to reach the big leagues this season.
