2019 Fantasy Outlook
Elias begin the season with Triple-A Pawtucket before being reacquired by the Mariners in late April. He was then assigned to Triple-A Tacoma where he was stretched out in anticipation of his long-relief, spot-starter role in Seattle. He was summoned June 1 and remained with the big club all season, save for a near three-week stretch in August when he was sidelined with a triceps strain. Elias appeared in 23 games, working multiple innings 14 times, including four starts. Despite gaining velocity across the board last season, including a career best 95-mph average on his fastball, Elias' strikeout rate dropped to 16%, below his career average. Last season, he was saved by allowing only one homer in 51 frames, a feat not likely to be repeated. With the Mariners acquiring a couple of young arms in their rebuild, Elias is again ticketed for a swingman role not conducive to fantasy, especially with his paucity of punchouts. Read Past Outlooks
