Could log second straight start
PSeattle Mariners
September 16, 2018
Elias, who pitched well against the Angels on Friday, could draw another start on Wednesday against the Astros, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
The veteran reliever fired 3.2 scoreless innings in his spot start versus the Halos, and with James Paxton (illness) possessing an uncertain return date, Elias could step in again Wednesday. Further clarity should be gleaned from how Paxton emerges from a likely early-week bullpen session.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
2015
Elias was a disappointment for the Red Sox after being acquired in the offseason deal that sent him and Carson Smith to Boston for Wade Miley. At that time of the deal, the Red Sox envisioned him as a competitor for the fifth spot in the rotation or a piece of the bullpen. But he labored throughout the spring, giving up 12 runs over 10.1 innings and was ultimately assigned to Triple-A Pawtucket. The left-hander was slow to develop a rhythm with the PawSox and was overmatched in his three appearances for the big club (12.91 ERA, 2.609 WHIP). He eventually settled into a second-half groove in the minors, posting a 2.38 ERA in 41.2 innings over seven appearances (six starts). Barring several injuries, there won't be a spot for him in Boston's rotation. A bullpen role is not out of the question, but the Red Sox will presumably allow him to try to build off his second-half success as a starter at Pawtucket.
Elias lost the battle for the fifth starter's job last spring but ended up making 20 starts for the Mariners (plus two relief appearances). He was mostly mediocre, as his strikeout rate actually dipped a bit from the previous year while his poor walk rate didn't improve significantly. Too often he made mistakes up in the zone with his low-90s fastball, which led to an elevated home-run rate, and he sometimes struggled to command his plus curveball and above-average changeup. This led to high pitch counts and shorter outings — he averaged only 5.2 innings per start but threw 91 pitches per start. The lefty was traded to the Red Sox in December and will compete for a rotation spot in spring training. He could also be used in the bullpen, as the Red Sox could use another southpaw reliever. Either way, he'll also have to contend with going from one of the more pitcher-friendly parks in the league to one of the most hitter-friendly.
Elias, who had never pitched above Double-A, came out of nowhere last season to earn a rotation spot in spring training. All things considered, he pitched pretty well throughout the season, allowing two earned runs or fewer in 18 of his 29 starts and posting a 2.31 ERA in his last 10. Armed with a low-to-mid-90s fastball, the left-hander has a good slider and changeup. A Cuban defector, Elias was fairly unpolished out of spring, and as he develops he'll likely improve both his strikeout rate and his control. The Mariners limited his innings by not allowing him to go deep into games, but his season ended with an elbow injury in mid-September anyway. He is expected to be healthy for spring training where he'll again compete for a rotation job. Whether a spot is open depends on what moves the team makes in the offseason.
