RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Despite opening last season on the DL due to a groin strain suffered in spring training, Fields returned in late April and immediately made an impact out of the Astros' bullpen. The third-year pro proved just how dominant he could be, compiling a 0.77 ERA with a 19:4 K:BB ratio over 11.2 innings during the month of May. He experienced a few hiccups in June and September, but finished the year with a career-best 3.55 ERA and 1.14 WHIP. Fields has a closer's repertoire (11.9 K/9 and an average fastball of 94.3 mph) and prior experience in the role (nine career saves), but he'll return to the Houston bullpen behind Ken Giles, Luke Gregerson, and Pat Neshek in the pecking order for saves.

2015

Fields was dominant through stretches of 2014, fanning hitters at an elite 11.5 K/9 clip while significantly reducing his walk rate (2.8 BB/9) compared to the year prior. Unfortunately, there a few disastrous outings mixed in, which attributed to a lofty 4.45 ERA. An uptick in fastball velocity (94.4 mph) and a 2.16 FIP are promising signs of a potential breakout season in 2015, however, as Fields is a favorite to break camp with a bullpen spot for the Astros. Keep in mind, however, that he's further away from closing with the team's offseason additions of Luke Gregerson and Pat Neshek.

2014

Fields, the first overall selection in the 2012 Rule 5 draft, earned a bullpen role with the Astros out of camp and went on to have an up-and-down rookie season in Houston. For the most part, his peripherals (9.5 K/9, 4.3 BB/9) were in line with his minor league ratios (10.3 K/9, 4.8 BB/9), but Fields allowed eight home runs in 38 innings for a 1.9 HR/9 mark after he permitted just 0.5 HR/9 in the minors. He will need to cut down on the number of long balls he allows as the team continues its search for a consistent and reliable closer. The 28-year-old right-hander picked up five saves for the Astros down the stretch after Jose Veras was traded and Chia-Jen Lo proved to be ineffective in his opportunities. Despite minimal experience, Fields appears likely to open the season as the Astros' closer since he has the strikeout repertoire and fastball (93.7 mph average) that is typically desired for the role.

2010

The Mariners' No. 1 draft choice in 2008, Fields didn't sign until February 2009. The long layoff might have contributed to his struggles, and he was shut down for a bit with dead arm. Fields throws hard, and his 97-mph fastball didn't disappoint, registering a 9.7 K/9IP, but he lacked command and control, issuing 5.9 BB/9IP. Phillippe Aumont's trade to Philadelphia helps Fields' cause, though the Mariners have plenty of late-inning options should closer David Aardsma falter, so there's no need to rush Fields. He will likely begin the season in Triple-A with a callup perhaps coming in summer.
