Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2015
Add another piece of evidence to the case that good relievers can come from nowhere. Dayton was traded midseason in 2015 to the Dodgers from the Marlins in exchange for struggling former first-round pick Chris Reed, and was dominant the second he was called up to the majors in late July 2016. By September, Dayton had established himself as the bullpen's top left-handed reliever. In 26.1 innings, he yielded a 2.05 ERA while striking out 39 and walking just six. His arsenal features a low-90s fastball and deadly curveball that he'll mix in about once every five pitches. While a rookie with those numbers could be enticing as a stash, there is a large caveat in that he's a very old rookie at age 28. Still, there's no question he gets strikeouts like few others and is on a team that will keep him in a high-leverage role as long as he keeps it up.
Dayton struck out over a batter per inning at each of his two stops in 2014, compiling a 3.13 ERA and 1.33 WHIP over 72 innings between Double-A and Triple-A. He continued to show solid command during his age-26 season and has posted 348 strikeouts against just 99 walks during his 284.1 minor league innings pitched. The lefty hurler is likely headed for some additional time at Triple-A to start the season, but with continued growth in a relief role, he could make his way to the majors this summer.
