2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Patton has rolled through the minor leagues with a double-digit K/9 at each of his stops, fanning 32.2% of the batters that he's faced in the minors to this point. The Rangers acquired him in July from the Royals for Jason Frasor, and Patton managed to rack up 18 saves between the two Triple-A clubs last season. In his arsenal, Patton features a low-90s fastball, slider and change, and he's been able to generate more strikeouts than expected because of his deceptive delivery. He'll likely be in the mix for a bullpen spot with the Rangers during spring training, but Patton is more likely to end up in middle relief than in the late innings at the big league level.
