Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2014
2013
Light can hit 100 mph on the radar gun, which has resulted in high strikeout rates, but he's struggled with control throughout his time as a minor leaguer. He improved at Boston's Triple-A Pawtucket last year with a 2.32 ERA and went 7-for-7 in save chances, though he fought through a 4.9 BB/9. Minnesota traded for him in late July in their continued quest to seek out high-velocity relievers. Light struggled in the majors, however, with a 9.6 BB/9 in 16.2 innings. After being traded to the Pirates over the offseason, he'll likely spend much of 2017 at Triple-A Indianapolis until he improves his control, but Light's electric arm gives him enough promise to keep him in the mix for a major league bullpen role.
Light's development took a hit in 2013 when he lost two months to a hamstring injury and he finished with just 34.1 innings. The tall righty has a good pitcher's frame, but there's some work to do. His fastball velocity fluctuated within games; he didn't locate it well and it was hittable. Further, Light needs to develop his secondary pitches. As a result, the bullpen could be in his future.
Light was Boston's first-round draft pick out of Monmouth University in 2012. He has a long frame that can handle the added weight as he matures. His fastball is mid-90s and tops out 97 mph. Light has a very smooth delivery with good downhill trajectory. He'll need to develop his slider and changeup in order to remain a starter, but should have success with just a fastball at Low-A. He could develop into a late-inning reliever, with closer potential.
