2014

2013

Kontos appeared in 44 games with the Giants out of the bullpen after being acquired in a trade right before the start of the season from the Yankees. He became a key cog in the bullpen for Bruce Bochy, posting a 2.47 ERA, 2.80 FIP and 3.25 xFIP, which indicate that he could remain a key setup man in 2013. Kontos relies heavily on his slider, which allowed him to record a 12.5 percent swinging-strike rate and 9.1 K/9. With a 51.3 percent groundball rate and an improved walk rate (2.4 BB/9), Kontos also should an ability to pitch against left-handed hitters by holding them to a .218 wOBA.

2012

Kontos made his major league debut late in 2011, and profiles as a middle reliever for the long term.  Kontos was fairly effective out of the bullpen for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in 2011, putting up a 2.62 ERA with a 1.097 WHIP with 91 strikeouts in 89.1 innings.  Kontos' good command could secure him a middle relief role somewhere, but he doesn't a deep enough arsenal to exceed that ceiling.
