2018 Fantasy Outlook
Milner's 2017 season began with the disappointment of being offered back to the Phillies after failing to stick with the Indians as a Rule 5 pick. He earned a promotion to Philadelphia in June, however, and stuck with the team for the rest of the season. Milner put up an impressive 2.01 ERA in the 31.1 innings he threw as a left-handed reliever, though his underlying numbers suggest that level of performance won't be repeatable. Milner's strikeout rate (6.3 K/9) and walk rate (4.6 BB/9) were well below average, and his HR/FB rate (6.1 percent) is unsustainably low. Those numbers add up to a 5.54 xFIP, and if his ERA falls back to that number next year, Milner could easily find himself out of a job. A mediocre reliever without a guaranteed bullpen spot can be left alone in most leagues, though Milner at least has a clearer path to playing time than he would in other organizations, as the Phillies' bullpen is low on viable lefties.

ANALYSIS
