Earns second win in relief
PNew York Yankees
May 5, 2021
Luetge (2-0) was credited with the win Tuesday against Houston, allowing one hit in a scoreless inning.
ANALYSIS
Luetge entered the contest in the sixth inning with the score tied 3-3. He allowed a one-out single to Alex Bregman that was subsequently erased on an inning-ending double play. The Yankees then exploded for four runs in the bottom of the frame, handing the left-hander his second win of the campaign. Luetge has been a solid contributor to the team's bullpen in his first big-league action since 2015, compiling a 3.78 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 17:3 K:BB across 16.2 innings.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2015
2014
2013
2012
For the second consecutive season, Luetge bounced between Seattle and Triple-A Tacoma before making eight of his 12 major-league appearances during a September callup. In 62.1 innings at Tacoma, he posted a 10.1 K/9. Armed with a fastball that only sits in the high-80s/low-90s, Luetge depends on changing speeds with a deceptive slider. When that's working, he can be effective. But too often a lack of control has done him in. The last two seasons, he had a 4.1 BB/9 in 93.1 innings at Triple-A and a 4.1 BB/9 in 46 innings at Seattle. If Joe Beimel doesn't return, Luetge would be in line to be the second lefty in the bullpen behind Charlie Furbush. That was the scenario last season, though, and Luetge couldn't make the roster out of spring training.
Luetge was expected to be a key left-hander in the bullpen last season, but instead bounced between Seattle and Tacoma as his career derailed. After limiting lefties to a .118 BAA in 2012, he regressed to .259 last year. He also allowed 9-of-23 inherited runners to score after just 8-of-50 crossed home plate against him in 2012. While Luetge improved his control somewhat, more is expected than a 3.4 UIBB/9. A 2011 Rule 5 pick, Luetge's best pitch is a sweeping slider. He'll compete for a bullpen spot again in spring training.
A 2011 Rule 5 pick, Luetge was one of the Mariners' better finds last season. The 6-foot-4 southpaw held left-handed batters to a .193 average, quickly working his way into high-leverage situations. It took him 26 outings before he allowed his first earned run, and he stranded 17 of his first 18 inherited runners. Perhaps he tired down the stretch, as his last 10 games produced a 5:5 K:BB and 10 runs, which bloated his ERA. Despite the absence of a big fastball, Luetge generates plenty of swinging strikes by deceptively changing speeds with a sweeping slider that keeps batters off balance. He could stand to improve his control after walking 18 unintentionally in 40.2 innings last season, but he's a valuable member of the bullpen, as his 63 appearances - second on the team - attest. He'll return this season to share the late-inning lefty role with Charlie Furbush.
Luetge profiles as a lefty specialist, but in 69 innings at Double-A Huntsville last season, Luetge posted a 3.13 ERA and 69:23 K:BB. Lefties hit just .175 against him, and he'll get a chance to serve as a specialist in Seattle after the Mariners selected him in the Rule 5 draft from the Brewers in December.
