2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Brooks was solid as a starter in 2014 for Triple-A Omaha, posting a 3.88 ERA and 1.27 WHIP over 139 innings in the minors. The same cannot be said for his first career big league start, however, as he was unable to make it out of the first inning after allowing seven runs on five hits and three walks, while also hitting two opposing batters. The 6-foot-3 right-hander will likely start the season at Triple-A once again, though he should be on manager Ned Yost's short list of names to be called should the need for a spot starter arise. The 24-year-old used a 92 mph fastball, along with a slider and changeup, to some success in the minors, as he only walked 4.3% of the batters he faced. If he can put that rocky first start behind him, there should eventually be a role for him in the majors, though it's unclear if that will translate to much fantasy value.
