2019 Fantasy Outlook
There was no outlook written for Andrew Albers in 2019. Check out the latest news below for more on his current fantasy value.
$Signed a minor league deal with the Braves in December of 2016.
Granted release, headed to Japan
PFree Agent  F
December 18, 2017
Albers was granted his release by the Mariners on Monday and will sign with a Nippon Professional Baseball team, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet reports.
ANALYSIS
Albers spent the first half of the season with Atlanta's Triple-A affiliate before being dished to the Mariners and promoted to the majors in August. The southpaw held his own in Seattle, posting a 3.51 ERA and 37:10 K:BB across 41 innings split between starting and relieving, but he'll head to Japan next season where he'll likely be afforded the opportunity to stick in the rotation.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2014
Albers managed a solid 3.69 ERA with a shaky 1.45 WHIP in 21 starts for Triple-A Rochester last season, earning him his first starts in the majors since 2013 when the Twins were desperate for pitching late in the season. Albers' unusual delivery can fool hitters, but his lack of velocity (87.2 mph fastball average) severely limits his upside. He's likely just going to provide depth at Triple-A.
Albers was a late bloomer who got called up last August and began his career with two great starts before coming back down to earth. The lefty previously pitched in independent ball before signing with the Twins in 2011, becoming a productive reliever at High-A and Double-A. He moved into the rotation at Triple-A in 2013 and thrived with a 2.86 ERA and 116:32 K:BB ratio in 132.1 innings. Albers was called up to the majors in August with the Twins desperate for starters, coming within two outs of a shutout in his first start and delivering a two-hit shutout in his second turn. It was all downhill thereafter, as Albers went 0-5 with a 5.75 ERA and 4.3 K/9 in his next eight starts. Albers' unusual delivery may have fooled hitters initially, but his lack of velocity (86.6 mph fastball average) eventually became a problem. He may have had a shot to win a role with the Twins again, but instead chose to sign with the Hanwha Eagles of the Korea Baseball Organization for 2014.
