Past Fantasy Outlooks
2015
2014
Theilbar proved he belongs in the majors last year, as the former 18th-round draft pick who was pitching in independent ball before the Twins signed him had a decent season in Minnesota's setup corps. He saw his strikeout rate decline to 6.6 K/9 from 7.6 K/9 in 2013, but he largely had the same season despite an increase in his ERA to 3.45 from 1.76. He gave up more hits, however, thanks to a sharp increase in his opponents' BABIP. Thielbar doesn't have great fastball velocity (88.8 mph), so his upside appears limited.
Thielbar is a late bloomer who was a surprise success in Minnesota's bullpen last season. Originally drafted by the Brewers in the 18th round in 2008, Thielbar was pitching in independent ball in 2011 before signing with the Twins. He had decent strikeout rates, but struggled with his control until last season at Triple-A, where he posted a 3.76 ERA and an impressive 34:8 K:BB ratio in 26.1 innings. After he was called up in May, he began his major league career with 20 scoreless innings and finished the season with an impressive 1.76 ERA and 39:14 K:BB in 46 innings. Despite the strong numbers, there are some warning signs as Thielbar does not have great fastball velocity (89.8 mph) and had an unsustainable .181 BABIP. He will likely win a job in middle relief during the spring, but at age 27 his upside is somewhat limited.
