Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
2015
The Cubs acquired Brooks from Oakland for Chris Coghlan in February, but he was never healthy in 2016 after landing on the disabled list with a hip contusion in early April. Despite efforts to get back in the mix at Iowa, Brooks was limited just five appearances -- four starts -- in the Pacific Coast League before he was moved to the 60-day DL in August. In his last healthy campaign (2015), Brooks was effective as a starter at Triple-A, relying on good control to survive in the hitter-friendly PCL, but his limited exposure to big league hitters yielded poor results (6.67 ERA, 1.46 HR/9). Brooks remained on the Cubs' 40-man roster at the start of the offseason, suggesting that the front office sees him as a useful organizational piece, perhaps capable of contributing in long relief or as an option to make spot starts while working mostly as a starter at Iowa if he's able to return to health in 2017.
The A's acquired Brooks in the Ben Zobrist deal as a secondary piece behind Sean Manaea. Brooks spent August and September in the majors making 11 appearances for the A's, nine of which were starts. The results were not pretty, as he sported a 6.71 ERA while only striking out 35 batters in 51 innings. Brooks is not considered a high-level prospect and has a 4.18 ERA across his five minor league seasons. He has solid control as he limits walks effectively (career 1.4 BB/9 in the minors), but will likely never be a huge strikeout pitcher. The Cubs saw something they liked in Brooks, as they received him in the Chris Coghlan trade, but this almost guarantees that he will be transitioned to a reliever long term. Given the depth in the Cubs' bullpen, it is unlikely that he makes much noise in 2016.
Brooks was solid as a starter in 2014 for Triple-A Omaha, posting a 3.88 ERA and 1.27 WHIP over 139 innings in the minors. The same cannot be said for his first career big league start, however, as he was unable to make it out of the first inning after allowing seven runs on five hits and three walks, while also hitting two opposing batters. The 6-foot-3 right-hander will likely start the season at Triple-A once again, though he should be on manager Ned Yost's short list of names to be called should the need for a spot starter arise. The 24-year-old used a 92 mph fastball, along with a slider and changeup, to some success in the minors, as he only walked 4.3% of the batters he faced. If he can put that rocky first start behind him, there should eventually be a role for him in the majors, though it's unclear if that will translate to much fantasy value.
