RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Duffey took a big step back last season after a strong rookie year, leaving his status in the major league rotation in doubt. He looked set to be a solid starter in the majors after posting a 3.10 ERA with a strong 8.2 K/9 in the second half of 2015. Duffey's sharp curveball with a 12-to-6 break compensated for his lack of velocity (90.2 mph average fastball) in his rookie season, but major league hitters figured out the pitch last season. He also struggled against right-handed batters by allowing a 1.038 OPS to righties compared to allowing just a .738 OPS to righties in 2015. He may have been a bit unlucky with a 19.5 percent HR/FB rate (3.89 xFIP). Despite his struggles, he still had a decent 7.7 K/9 and good control (2.1 BB/9), so there's hope for a turnaround. However, he'll need to win a spot in the rotation this spring and may need to prove himself again in Triple-A.

2016

Duffey wasn't considered a top pitching prospect before last season, but he was called up to the majors in July after posting a 2.53 ERA with a 7.2 K/9 at Triple-A. In fact, he may have been Minnesota's best pitcher in the second half of the season as he had a 3.10 ERA with a strong 8.2 K/9. Duffey has an outstanding curveball with a 12-to-6 break that compensates for his lack of velocity (90.2 mph average fastball). He's also been able to keep the ball on the ground (49 percent groundball rate) and in the park. Duffey should enter the spring as the No. 3 starter and could be a sleeper in most fantasy leagues.
