2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Elias lost the battle for the fifth starter's job last spring but ended up making 20 starts for the Mariners (plus two relief appearances). He was mostly mediocre, as his strikeout rate actually dipped a bit from the previous year while his poor walk rate didn't improve significantly. Too often he made mistakes up in the zone with his low-90s fastball, which led to an elevated home-run rate, and he sometimes struggled to command his plus curveball and above-average changeup. This led to high pitch counts and shorter outings he averaged only 5.2 innings per start but threw 91 pitches per start. The lefty was traded to the Red Sox in December and will compete for a rotation spot in spring training. He could also be used in the bullpen, as the Red Sox could use another southpaw reliever. Either way, he'll also have to contend with going from one of the more pitcher-friendly parks in the league to one of the most hitter-friendly.

2015

Elias, who had never pitched above Double-A, came out of nowhere last season to earn a rotation spot in spring training. All things considered, he pitched pretty well throughout the season, allowing two earned runs or fewer in 18 of his 29 starts and posting a 2.31 ERA in his last 10. Armed with a low-to-mid-90s fastball, the left-hander has a good slider and changeup. A Cuban defector, Elias was fairly unpolished out of spring, and as he develops he'll likely improve both his strikeout rate and his control. The Mariners limited his innings by not allowing him to go deep into games, but his season ended with an elbow injury in mid-September anyway. He is expected to be healthy for spring training where he'll again compete for a rotation job. Whether a spot is open depends on what moves the team makes in the offseason.
