Dylan Covey
27-Year-Old PitcherRP
Chicago White Sox AAA
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Covey made 21 starts and a six relief appearances for a struggling White Sox team, finishing with numbers which were mediocre at best. His 4.39 FIP did beat his 5.18 ERA by a fair amount but is certainly nothing to write home about. He kept the ball on the ground, posting an above-average 55.1% groundball rate, but that was his only real skill, as his 16.8% strikeout rate and 9.6% walk rate were poor. Now 27 years old, there's little reason to believe he'll suddenly improve into anything more than a back-end starter or swingman. He did post a 2.25 ERA out of the bullpen, which was far better than his 5.50 mark in the rotation, though the sample size was quite small. It would take a major improvement for him to profile as a high-leverage reliever. Read Past Outlooks

2018 Fantasy Outlook
It's hard to fathom Covey getting another chance in the rotation after going 0-7 with a 7.71 ERA, but here we are. The dearth of capable arms on the south side of Chicago will likely afford him an opportunity to compete for a starting role in spring training. The peripherals suggest Covey deserved better last season, but not much better as he had just a dismal 2.3 K-BB percentage and 2.57 HR/9 (7.20 FIP, 5.54 xFIP, 5.64 SIERA). Covey turned in just a 6.2 percent swinging-strike rate and 55.7 percent first-pitch strike rate, so there is little reason to believe his K-rate will improve moving forward. A rebuilding team like the White Sox needs arms to just get them through the season, but you still have to appease the fanbase to some extent. The team would be wise to bring in a couple veterans at the minimum to eat innings, pushing Covey to the bullpen.
