Colorado Rockies
2018 Fantasy Outlook
The Rockies gave Rusin a full-time role in the team's bullpen last season, and the transition was a smooth one as he logged 85 innings in 60 appearances while pitching to a 2.65 ERA. The overall workload was nearly identical to his 2016 season, and the skills appear to be pretty stable at this point. Rusin's ability to get groundballs makes him a useful multi-inning reliever in Colorado (58.5 percent GB%), and while he's not overpowering (7.5 K/9), he doesn't give up much in the way of walks (2.0 BB/9) or homers (0.95 HR/9) when you consider that he pitches half of his games at Coors Field. It's interesting to note that Rusin was missing more bats during the second half (8.5 K/9), and a slight bump in strikeout rate over a full season would go a long way toward helping him keep his ERA in the low-3.00 range in 2018. He'll likely to return to the same role, making most of his appearances in the seventh inning and earlier. Read Past Outlooks
