RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

There was no outlook written for A.J. Achter.

2016

Achter had some success at Triple-A last season with a 2.63 ERA and 47 strikeouts in 48 innings, but he struggled in the majors with the Twins to the tune of a 6.75 ERA in 11 appearances. He was claimed off waivers by the Phillies this offseason, and then designated for assignment. Achter was then claimed by the Angels and outrighted, so it is possible he spends most, or all of 2016 at Triple-A. If he does pitch his way back to the majors, he'll likely be used in lower-leverage situations.

2015

Achter is a late bloomer as the former 46th-round draft pick carved out a relief role in the minors and continued to be productive at each level. He had a 2.38 ERA and 8.6 K/9 at Triple-A which resulted in a September callup to the Twins. He struck out just five batters in 11 innings in the majors, but otherwise held his own with a 3.27 ERA. While he doesn't have an overpowering fastball, his minor league strikeout rates and good control suggest he could be an effective reliever in the majors. He'll try to win a spot in Minnesota's bullpen this spring.
