Avoids arbitration with new team
PMiami Marlins
January 15, 2021
Cimber and the Marlins avoided arbitration Friday by agreeing to terms on a one-year, $925,000 deal, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.
ANALYSIS
The two sides won't have to start their relationship off with a potentially acrimonious arbitration hearing after Cimber was acquired from Cleveland in exchange for cash considerations in late November. The right-hander should work mainly as a low-leverage reliever for Miami in 2021.

Stat Review
How does Adam Cimber 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 2019 data (min 30 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.
  • K/BB
    Strikeout to walk ratio.
  • K/9
    Average strikeouts per nine innings.

Mound Musings: The Trade Winds Are Blowing
July 26, 2018
Brad Johnson discusses some of the high-profile pitching changes happening this month, like the Brad Hand and Adam Cimber move from San Diego to Cleveland.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
Cimber proved once again in 2019 that he's one of Cleveland's top options out of the bullpen, and while he finished with a 4.45 ERA and 1.32 WHIP over 56.2 innings, he also registered 19 holds and his first career save. The 29-year-old reliever watched his K/9 drop and his walk totals rise in 2019, though his BABIP improved to .287 after sitting at .318 during the 2018 season. His strikeout numbers could be a concern for fantasy owners, especially with a fastball that sits in the mid-80s, but he's shown through his first two big-league seasons that he can be effective. Cimber's role isn't expected to change much heading into the upcoming 2020 campaign with the Indians, as he should slot into a late-innings role yet again, and he could also be in the conversation for saves if Brad Hand should struggle with his health like he did last year.
It takes but one time watching Cimber pitch to see what his lot in baseball life should be. If you were to build the perfect ROOGY pitcher, Cimber would fit the mold. His drop-down arm angle and delivery are brutal on righties. They hit just .235/.273/.337 against him last year in nearly 200 plate appearances. When manager Terry Francona needed to squelch a rally with a double play, or had a tough righty slugger coming up with runners in scoring position, Cimber was the guy to use. Conversely, Cimber should never see the light of day against a lefty in anything but a low-leverage situation because the same things that make him great against righties expose him to high damage against lefties. It is unlikely this path will change because getting better against lefties will involve him changing what makes him so tough on righties.
