2020 Fantasy Outlook
This is Brice's second stint with the Marlins after stops with the Reds, Angels and Orioles without a pitch thrown for the last two on that list. Brice's speciality is a very high spin rate curveball, which he threw 45% of the time last year. He uses a stiff low arm slot delivery to sling the ball to the plate which makes it tough on righties to pick him up as evidenced by their .192/.274/.327 slash line against him last season. He is more susceptible to damage against lefties (.246/.366/.420), but this may all be for naught as his season ended in late August due to a forearm strain. Just watching his delivery makes it easy to see how his arm got into that condition. Read Past Outlooks
$Waived by the Reds in November of 2018. Claimed off waivers by the Angels in November of 2018. Waived by the Angels in January of 2019. Claimed off waivers by the Orioles in January of 2019. Waived by the Orioles in February of 2019. Claimed off waivers by the Marlins in February of 2019.
Scoreless inning as opener
PBoston Red Sox
August 2, 2020
Brice allowed two walks and struck out three in a scoreless inning as the opener versus the Yankees on Sunday. He did not factor into the decision.
ANALYSIS
A fielding error by Jose Peraza and Brice's two walks created a bases-loaded situation, but the righty struck out Luke Voit to escape the jam. Brice has a 6.35 ERA and 1.41 WHIP in 5.2 innings this season, mostly as a reliever. The 28-year-old isn't likely to enter the closer conversation any time soon.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Brice transition to a relief role in June and got his first callup to the majors two months later. His 14 big league innings could have gone better, as he finished the season with a 7.07 ERA and 4.50 FIP, but Brice took a step forward with his control. He walked 24 batters in 72 innings as a starter for Double-A Jacksonville, adding up to a 3.0 BB/9 that would represent the best mark of his minor league career. Once he moved to the bullpen, he reined the ball in even more with a 1.8 BB/9 between Jacksonville and Triple-A New Orleans. If he keeps that progress up, he could earn a regular role in the big league bullpen for 2017, especially now that he's in a Reds organization that's lacking in big-league-ready arms.
