Make no mistake about it, Givens is mixed-league material. He has all the makings of a solid closer, and now he may have the opportunity to earn saves with Zach Britton expected to miss the first half of the 2018 season with an Achilles injury. Givens has put up consecutive solid seasons in the bullpen as he has helped get the ball to whomever is closing behind him while picking up a number of wins thanks to his work in medium- and high-leverage situations. He misses bats at a good clip (10.1 K/9), and showed improvement with his control last season, trimming his BB/9 from 4.3 to 2.9. Brad Brach figures to step into the ninth inning to begin the year, but Givens should be next in line, at least for the duration of Britton's absence.

  2. Mychal Givens 2017 Preseason Outlook
    Givens quickly powered his way through the minor leagues and made his big league debut in 2015. He put together a superb rookie season (1.80 ERA in 30 innings) and earned himself a spot on the Orioles' 2016 Opening Day roster. His walk rate more than doubled in 2016, causing his overall numbers to decline a bit, but he was still able to put together an overall effective campaign. Givens posted a 3.13 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, and 13 holds while maintaining his ridiculous strikeout rate at 30.7 percent over 74.2 innings. His walk rate increased from 5.1 percent in 2015 to 11.5 percent in 2016, as the command of his changeup and slider declined a bit. Givens is a sure bet to remain an important piece in the Orioles' bullpen going forward, but he isn't likely to garner much fantasy value until he's able to work his way in a more consistent setup or closer role.
  3. Mychal Givens 2016 Preseason Outlook
    Givens' transition from shortstop to pitcher bloomed nicely in 2015, as his dominance at the Double-A level earned a promotion to the Orioles. Drafted in 2009, Givens was converted to a relief pitcher in 2013. He has a fastball that can reach the upper-90s and he complements it primarily with a slider that sits in the mid-80s. He also has a changeup that he throws with less frequency that also sits in the mid-80s. Givens had a 12.4 K/9 at Double-A and an 11.4 K/9 with the Orioles. The big step forward was his control, as Givens went from a 6.0 BB/9 at High-A and Double-A in 2014 to a 2.5 BB/9 at Double-A and just a 1.8 BB/9 with the Orioles. Givens seems like a shoo-in for a bullpen spot in 2016. With the easy transition straight from Double-A to the Orioles, Givens may have proven he is ready to move into a setup role sooner rather than later.
