2016

2015

Finnegan rose quickly through the Kansas City farm system in 2014 after being drafted 17th overall in June, and showed enough promise for manager Ned Yost to be comfortable using the 21-year-old in high-leverage playoff situations down the stretch. He pitched well in those pressure-filled scenarios, though allowing five runs in his ultimate appearance left a black mark on his final stat line. The potential is certainly there, however, as Finnegan has solid command of a mid-90s fastball, in addition to both a slider and changeup. He displayed the ability to strike hitters out in the majors, fanning 14 batters in 13 innings during the regular season and playoffs. If those secondary pitches continue to develop as hoped, Finnegan could work his way into the back end of the rotation, but he can always use a fastball-slider combo in the bullpen as a fallback option. He won't have much fantasy value working in the bullpen behind Greg Holland, Wade Davis and Kelvin Herrera, but a starting role could make him an intriguing sleeper heading into 2015.
