Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
2015
Mariot was claimed off waivers by the Phillies prior to last season. He missed all of spring training and most of the first two months of the regular season with an ankle injury before the Phillies gave him a look in August. Mariot pitched well enough that he worked his way into a late-inning role by the end of the season. He was even used to close out a few games and picked up two saves while also blowing one chance. Mariot generated a 9.55 K/9 in the majors, racking up most of his strikeouts with his slider. He also put a lot of runners on base via the walk, however, and he won't be able to find consistent success in the majors without improvement in that area. Those control issues also make it unlikely that he'll close down the road. Despite holding a high-leverage role in 2016, Mariot will have to compete for his roster spot this spring.
Mariot pitched only three innings in two games at the major league level in 2015, but had a successful run for Triple-A Omaha. He appeared in 42 games and posted a 2.32 ERA and 1.10 WHIP in 62 innings pitched, which resulted in a 4-2 record along with eight saves. The biggest upside for Mariot is his high strikeout numbers, striking out 10.5 batters per nine innings. His success in 2015 should translate into an increased role at the major league level next season, but Mariot could be shuttled back and forth between the big league club and AAA.
Mariot saw his first taste of big-league action in 2014, but was touched up quite frequently, allowing a total of 18 earned runs on 31 hits and 12 walks over 17 appearances with the Royals. Even the time he spent at Triple-A Omaha was a bit concerning, as the right-hander posted a minor-league career-worst ERA of 4.95 over 20 innings. He also recorded just two saves for the Storm Chasers after collecting a total of 11 as a part-time closer in 2013. An explanation finally arrived for his drop-off in performance in late-August, as Mariot was recalled from Omaha only to be placed on the 60-day disabled list, where he finished the season. The fact that little information is known regarding the ailment makes him a risky player to own heading into the 2015 season.
