2019 Fantasy Outlook
After getting some preseason hype as a potential closer, Bedrosian finished 2018 with just a single save. No player on the Angels had more than 14. He recorded a decent-but-unremarkable 3.80 ERA in 64 innings, while his strikeout rate fell to a mediocre 21.0% after sitting at 31.5% and 27.9% over the previous two seasons. In parts of five big-league campaigns, the 27-year-old now has one excellent season but four which were middling or worse. Cody Allen was brought in to take over the ninth, and Bedrosian doesn't have a particularly strong claim to be the next man up. If he can recapture the form which saw him post a 1.12 ERA back in 2016, he could make a charge for the setup job, but with a fastball which has declined for two straight years and now sits at 93.1 mph, over two mph slower than it was at its peak, such a turnaround seems unlikely.

Earns first save of season
PLos Angeles Angels
June 13, 2019
Bedrosian worked around a hit with two strikeouts in a scoreless inning of work to earn his first save of the season in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Rays.
Bedrosian came on with a two-run lead and worked around a two-out single to retire the side while throwing 12 of 15 pitches for strikes. Virtually the entire bullpen was available to pitch in this one, so it's a bit peculiar that Bedrosian got the call ahead of Hansel Robles or any of the other four Angels relievers with a save to their name. The club seems to be using a true committee approach in save situations at the moment.

Stat Review
How does Cam Bedrosian compare to other relievers?
This section compares his stats with all relief pitcher seasons from the previous three seasons (minimum 30 innings)*. The bar represents the player's percentile rank. For example, if the bar is halfway across, then the player falls into the 50th percentile for that stat and it would be considered average.

* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against this season's data (min 20 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.
  • K/BB
    Strikeout to walk ratio.
  • K/9
    Average strikeouts per nine innings.
  • BB/9
    Average walks per nine innings.
  • HR/9
    Average home runs allowed per nine innings.
  • Fastball
    Average fastball velocity.
  • ERA
    Earned run average. The average earned runs allowed per nine innings.
  • WHIP
    Walks plus hits per inning pitched.
    Batting average on balls in play. Measures how many balls in play against a pitcher go for hits.
  • GB/FB

  • Spin Rate
    Spin Rate is the rate of spin on a baseball after it is released. It is measured in revolutions per minute (rpm).
  • Balls Hit 95+ MPH
    The percentage of batted balls hit that met or exceeded the 95 MPH threshold.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
An injury to Huston Street opened the door for Bedrosian to begin the season in the closer role, but Bedrosian landed on the DL with an injury of his own just weeks into the campaign. There was a setback with the injured groin along the way and he didn't immediately take back the ninth inning upon his return. Bedrosian picked up a few more saves after Bud Norris' removal from the role, but manager Mike Scioscia eventually grew to favor Blake Parker as his endgamer. Although he failed to secure the closer job, Bedrosian had a fine season with his 3.38 FIP coming in more than a full run lower than his ERA. Bedrosian posted a 10.7 K/9 despite a noticeable dip in average fastball velocity, as he got more swings on pitches out of the strike zone with a heavier reliance on the slider. The right-hander should be in the back-end bullpen mix again in 2018, but Parker likely has the edge over Bedrosian entering spring training.
Bedrosian will be a favorite target for those preferring not to pay top dollar for saves, and for good reason. The hard-throwing right-hander misses bats with regularity -- he's capable of fanning hitters at a double-digit per nine clip. However, there are some roadblocks: control, health and Huston Street. Walks have always been an issue, with last season's 3.1 BB/9 mark representing a major improvement over what the second-generation reliever registered at Triple-A and during previous stints in the majors. Bedrosian's 2016 season ended after a blood clot was discovered in his right arm while he was on the DL with finger tendinitis. However, he's supposed to be fully recovered from both in the spring. While Street has more experience closing games, he has been exhibiting declining skills. There's a good chance that if Bedrosian stays healthy and limits the free passes in Cactus League play, he'll open the season with ninth-inning duties.
Bedrosian pitched to the back of his baseball card in 2015, combining a nice strikeout rate (9.2 K/9) with a bloated walk rate (5.2 BB/9) in 33.1 innings, which resulted in a 5.40 ERA. He found success at Triple-A Salt Lake last season, posting a 2.78 ERA, but exhibited the same control problems, notching a walk rate over 3.5 BB/9 in 24 games. Bedrosian's average fastball velocity of over 94 mph makes for a potentially valuable bullpen weapon, and he will likely be given another shot to succeed with the big club based on his rapid ascension through the lower levels of the minor leagues. However, he will likely never realize his value (fantasy or otherwise) until he can get his control straightened out.
Hailed as a top-10 prospect in the Angels' organization heading into the 2014 season, Bedrosian made quick work of Double-A Arkansas, notching a 1.13 ERA and 45 strikeouts in 24 innings before being promoted to the big club in July. Unfortunately for the former first-round pick, he would not see much success the rest of the season, as he allowed 17 runs in 19 innings in the majors. The 23-year-old did not fare much better during a brief stint at Triple-A Salt Lake, where he allowed six runs in eight appearances. The strikeouts have always been a part of Bedrosian's skill set (9.7 K/9 in 202.2 minor league innings), but so is a career 4.7 BB/9. Bedrosian is a young man with swing-and-miss stuff, which could project well for his future, but until he is able to harness his control, he won't see much time at the big league level.
