Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
Oberg's minor league numbers insinuate that he's primed to be a high-leverage reliever in the Colorado bullpen, but for the second season in a row, the right-hander failed to take the final step toward making that happen. The 27-year-old spent 2016 shuttling between Triple-A Albuquerque and the major leagues, and while his 2.43 ERA and 11.1 K/9 with the Isotopes turned heads, he couldn't transfer that success into the majors during any of his stints in Denver. His ERA jumped to 5.19 while his strikeout rate went south of a strikeout per inning (thanks mostly due to a 7.36 ERA at home), keeping him out of a high-leverage role for most of the season. To end things on a sour note, Oberg's campaign was cut short due to axillary artery thrombosis in his pitching arm, clouding his status heading into 2017. If he is ready for spring training right away, he'll need to prove he can keep the ball in the park at Coors Field, or else he'll be destined to serve as a Quad-A pitcher going forward.
A 2012 15th-round draft pick, Oberg performed much better at each level of the minors than his draft position would imply. That success didn't translate into the majors, however. The right-hander bounced between Triple-A and the majors but amassed most of his work with the Rockies, pitching 58.1 innings with Colorado versus just eight with Albuquerque. He had trouble with the longball all season (10 homers allowed), which translated into a rough 5.09 ERA and 1.53 WHIP in the majors. Oberg finished the year strong, though, posting a 0.79 ERA over his last 14 appearances, so if he can keep the ball in the park and continue his success at the end of the year, Oberg could be relied on more heavily in the Rockies' bullpen.
