It’s hard to believe a reliever sporting a 2.59 ERA, 1.12 WHIP with 96 whiffs in 62.1 innings can be saddled with four losses and six blown saves, but such is the life of a setup man. Kahnle did garner 15 holds, eight of which came with the Yankees after the White Sox shipped him east on July 18. The scary thing is Kahnle pitched into some bad luck as evidenced by a 1.83 FIP and 2.51 xFIP. The culprit was a .358 BABIP. Saving the fireballing righty was a steep drop in walks, down to 6.6 percent from a career average of 11.8 percent. Better location of his 98-mph fastball while mixing in more changeups also fueled a bump strikeout rate, to a career-best 38 percent, supported by a 16.7 percent swinging-strike rate. It’s best to be cautious of a pitcher exhibiting a drop in walks, but the likely hit rate correction softens the blow.

  2. Tommy Kahnle 2017 Preseason Outlook
    Kahnle spent the 2016 season shuttling between Triple-A and the majors following the trade that sent him to the south side of Chicago. His performance out of Charlotte's bullpen was decent, but things at the major league level weren't coming as easily as they were in the minors at first. Through Aug. 5, Kahnle held a 6.52 ERA and 2.48 WHIP while walking more batters than he struck out. The right-hander turned things around after that, however, as he managed to stifle batters to the tune of a 0.51 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and a 9.2 K/9 over his last 17.2 innings of the season. However, his BB/9 at the end of the year was a putrid 6.6, and his FIP still hung up at 4.52. Kahnle is only 27 years old, so there is still a bit of growing room, although he'll have to fix his major control issues if he wants to lock down a full-time spot in the big league bullpen.
  3. Tommy Kahnle 2016 Preseason Outlook
    After beginning the season with Triple-A Albuquerque, Kahnle showed the Rockies some promise in 2015. The right-hander fanned 39 batters in 33.1 innings and even produced two saves during a short stint as the Rockies' closer. However, he fell apart at the end of the season, blowing a save while allowing five earned runs in his final two innings as the closer, which forced the Rockies to send the 26-year-old back to Triple-A. Kahnle is still young, but he'll have to prove that he can improve his horrid 7.6 BB/9 if he wants to find a consistent spot in the big leagues. Traded to the White Sox in November, Kahnle will attempt to iron out his control issues and stick on the south side of Chicago in 2016.
  4. Tommy Kahnle 2015 Preseason Outlook
    Poached by the Rockies in the Rule 5 Draft prior to last season, Kahnle quickly became an integral member of the bullpen despite having never tossed an inning above the Double-A level. In fact, Kahnle had a strong claim for being the club’s best reliever through the season’s first four months, entering the All-Star break with a 2.68 ERA and .181 BAA over 50.1 frames. The high innings load would take its toll thereafter, with the right-hander’s average fastball velocity declining with his results. A 163-point second-half jump in opponent OPS ultimately saddled Kahnle with a 4.19 ERA, but on the whole, he still performed better than anticipated. Throughout both his minor league career and lone season in the majors, Kahnle has overcome his occasionally spotty control by missing bats (8.2 K/9 rate in 2014) and limiting hard contact (17.1% line-drive rate). That latter attribute is especially meaningful at Coors Field, and could allow Kahnle to see more high-leverage setup work in 2015 if he’s able to avoid the pitfall of fatigue.
