2015 Fantasy Baseball Outlook

Wilhelmsen's best attribute might be his versatility. The one-time closer pitched mostly in long relief last season, but he can be used in late innings if needed and he even made a couple of spot star...

2015

2014

As Seattle's closer, the Bartender lived a Cinderella story. And then midnight came, and he turned into a gas can. In just about a calendar year of ninth-inning duty, Wilhelmsen posted a 1.36 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and .156 BAA. Then, overnight, he lost command of his high-90s fastball, lost control of his once-nasty slider and, worst of all, lost his confidence. Beginning in late May, over his next 27 outings, he gave up twice as many runs (22) as he did in his previous 68 outings (11). In those 25.1 innings, he walked 20 and struck out 18, losing his closer job before eventually earning a trip to Triple-A Tacoma. Wilhelmsen's trouble didn't disappear in the minors, either, as the right-hander was knocked around for 14 runs in 12 innings (10.50 ERA). He wasn't much better when he returned to Seattle in September. Where he stands entering this season is uncertain, but unless he regains the edge that had him pitching near an All-Star level, he won't see the ninth inning again.

2013

The Bartender's story is well known, and Wilhelmsen only added to the legend last season when he took over for Brandon League as closer in early June and proceeded to save 29 games. His high-90s fastball helped him post a 1.76 ERA as the closer with a .163 BAA. The Mariners have two fireballing right-handers to set up for Wilhelmsen in Stephen Pryor and Carter Capps. If either looks like he could thrive in the closer role, it could make Wilhelmsen a trade candidate. Otherwise, Wilhelmsen will return to ninth-inning duty in 2013 looking to add another chapter to his remarkable story.

2012

Drafted in 2002, out of baseball from 2003-2009, Wilhelmsen made his major league debut last season after his high-90s fastball earned him a spot in the Mariners bullpen in spring training. Wilhelmsen struck out 30 in 32.2 innings last season, mostly in a middle-relief/mop-up role. After a mid-season demotion to Double-A Jackson to work as a starter, he returned still a reliever and finished the season strong, allowing two runs in his last 18.1 innings (14 games) with 20 strikeouts and one walk. Wilhelmsen could find his way into a late-inning job this season as the Mariners dumped a few bullpen arms in the offseason. If so, a setup man with a high-90s fastball is worth keeping an eye on.
