2018 Fantasy Outlook
In a landscape where cheap middle relief is a Moneyball-like fantasy asset, Robles is someone to keep on your radar. Don't be swayed by his 4.92 ERA and 1.34 WHIP. He was sporting a 1.42 ERA and 1.05 WHIP before three straight blowups, surrendering 12 runs in just 2.2 frames, prompting a demotion to Triple-A Las Vegas. After he was recalled in mid-July, he posted a 2.38 ERA and 1.10 WHIP before struggling with fatigue in September. Obviously, the early disasters and scuffles down the stretch can't be ignored, but with another season under his belt, Robles should be better equipped for a more consistent 162-game season. The key is walks as Robles' 95-mph fastball misses plenty of bats, but he's a flyball pitcher and thus will give up a few homers. If he can limit shots with men on base, Robles can work in more high-leverage situations. Don't pay more than an endgame price, but there's some latent upside here. Read Past Outlooks

Robles (shoulder) was reinstated from the 10-day disabled list Sunday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic Los Angeles reports.
Robles wound up missing the minimum 10 days of action after incurring a right shoulder impingement earlier in the month. He figures to fill a middle-relief role now that he's back in action. To make room for him on the active roster, Deck McGuire was optioned to Triple-A.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Robles had an impressive rookie campaign in 2015, and he was able to avoid a sophomore slump last season. He continued to use his mid-90s fastball, along with a changeup and slider, to make batters miss to the tune of a 9.9 K/9. Of concern, is that he walked too many batters (4.2 BB/9) and saw his WHIP rise 32 points from 2015. Robles also endured a disastrous stretch in August in which he allowed 12 walks and 15 runs in 15 innings. He recovered from that with an impressive final month of the season, though, and outside of a few bad outings, there wasn't much to complain about. The righty was especially effective against lefties, holding them to a .179 BAA, though a .281 average against righties made for a reverse split. Robles appears in line to take on more high-leverage situations in 2017, although he remains behind Jeurys Familia and Addison Reed in the pecking order for saves.
Robles' first season as a full-time reliever was a resounding success. He was promoted to the majors after a handful of scoreless appearances for Triple-A Las Vegas and quickly entrusted with a high-leverage role. Armed with a mid-90s fastball and two potential plus secondary offerings (slider and changeup), Robles fanned major league hitters at a higher rate than closer Jeurys Familia. There were some issues when contact was made, as Robles gave up eight homers on the year, and he could stand to reduce the free passes, but the final numbers for a 25-year-old are great. The right-hander picked up 12 holds in total and five in September alone, and chances are he will continue to pitch in a prominent role out of the Mets' bullpen in 2016.
