Stat Review
How does Casey Sadler compare to other relievers?
This section compares his stats with all relief pitcher seasons from the previous three seasons (minimum 30 innings)*. The bar represents the player's percentile rank. For example, if the bar is halfway across, then the player falls into the 50th percentile for that stat and it would be considered average.

* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against this season's data (min 20 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2016
2015
2014
Sadler underwent Tommy John Surgery in October and will miss the entire 2016 season. The 25-year-old won his lone start for Pittsburgh in 2015 but spent the majority of time in Triple-A, where he went 6-5 with a 4.22 ERA and 1.20 WHIP. Sadler was looked upon as a possible depth starter but the injury sets him back. Fantasy owners will need to look elsewhere in 2016.
Sadler pitched well as a starter for Triple-A Indianapolis in 2014, but was unable to leverage that success into much at the big-league level. The right-hander compiled an 11-4 record with a 3.03 ERA and 1.19 WHIP in 124.2 frames for Indy. He had a tough time getting anyone out in the majors, allowing 12 hits, five walks and nine earned runs in 10.1 innings. Sadler is more of a possible swingman, making the occasional spot start while being used primarily out of the bullpen. While he is unlikely to get a crack at Pittsburgh's rotation in April, Sadler could make a midseason appearance when injuries strike.
Pittsburgh added Sadler to its 40-man roster in November, showing that the organization may have plans for the 23-year-old righty. He registered a 3.31 ERA in 130.1 innings for Double-A Altoona in 2013, but his 67:42 K:BB ratio did little to excite fantasy owners. The Pirates changed Sadler from reliever to starter in the middle of the 2012 season, so there's reason to expect continued gains from him. The 6-foot-4, 190-pound hurler uses a pitch-to-contact, groundball style to retire hitters, something that dovetails nicely with the organization's defensive shifting strategy. From a fantasy perspective, Sadler's peripherals leave little for fantasy owners to get excited about.
