28-Year-Old PitcherRP
2021 Fantasy Outlook
You don't see this often: a 9.82 ERA with a 4.76 FIP. A 43.1 LOB% will do that to a man. Coonrod added a tick of velocity and was pumping 98 mph on average with his fastballs in 2020, but even so his strikeout rate remained modest at 21.1%. Even worse, Coonrod hit the injured list with a lat strain early on and his season was bookended by a shoulder strain. His sinker was knocked around pretty good and had a whiff rate of just 15%, but the changeup and slider have shown flashes, so some sort of pitch-mix tweak could help Coonrod establish himself at the major-league level. He was traded to the Phillies in January of 2021 and could climb the ladder quickly if the arm trouble is behind him. Read Past Outlooks

Racks up second save
PPhiladelphia Phillies
May 4, 2021
Coonrod allowed two hits and struck out one across 1.2 innings to earn the save Tuesday against the Brewers.
ANALYSIS
The Phillies were faced with a depleted bullpen Tuesday, as Jose Alvarado was serving a suspension and Hector Neris was likely unavailable after throwing 1.2 frames a day earlier. That left Coonrod in the closer role, and he managed his second save of the season. Though both Neris and Alvarado figure to earn save chances ahead of Coonrod, his usage as the closer in their absence early on this season is worth noting.

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.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
Once an up-and-coming starter in the Giants' farm system, Coonrod switched to a relief role late in 2017 and spent most of the following season recovering from Tommy John surgery. Despite struggling with a 6.96 ERA across 32.1 innings in Triple-A last season, Coonrod was brought up by San Francisco and eventually settled into a middle-relief role. The right-hander did well enough in 27.1 big-league frames, posting a 5-1 record along with a 3.58 ERA. However, his ERA was buoyed by an unsustainable .222 BABIP, resulting in an unimpressive 5.24 FIP. Moreover, Coonrod's ability to throw heat -- his fastball clocks in at over 96 mph -- translated to a paltry 17.5 K% at the big-league level while his walk rate was a troubling 13.2%. Coonrod's role could expand as San Francisco's bullpen will undergo major changes in the offseason, but there's little reason to believe that he'll carry any fantasy value in 2020.
