2018 Fantasy Outlook
The 2017 version of Ottavino was another painful lesson in reliever volatility. Throughout the ups and downs of his career with injury, Ottavino has been a reliable source of strikeouts from the bullpen thanks to his nasty slider and has been very stingy with walks. It did not take much effort to squint at his skills and see the potential for him to become a closer. That never really happened as the club traded for Jake McGee and then later struck gold in Greg Holland and his impressive comeback season. Ottavino continued striking guys out in 2017, but suddenly his command wavered. He had a career-low first-pitch strike rate as well as a career-worst swinging-strike rate as opponents did not have to chase the slider out of the zone as much and waited on the fastball as he pitched from behind in the count. Overall, 2017 looks like an outlier, so look for a bounce-back year for the solid middle reliever. Read Past Outlooks
