Armstrong was shuttled between Cleveland and Columbus in 2017, due in part to issues keeping the ball in the park during his time with the Indians (1.82 HR/9). Throughout most of his time in the minors, home runs haven't been an issue, and Armstrong showed signs of growth with his main flaw last season by keeping his walk rate under 4.0 BB/9 at both levels. He's shown a three-pitch combo against big-league bats, using a fastball, cutter and curveball in his bid to keep opposing hitters off balance. In December, the Mariners acquired Armstrong in exchange for $500,000 in international bonus pool money following Shohei Ohtani's decision to sign with the Angels. With the move to Seattle, Armstrong's path to a regular bullpen spot is slightly easier, but he'll need to maintain the improved control he showed last season in order to avoid making trips between Seattle and Tacoma in 2018.

  2. Shawn Armstrong 2017 Preseason Outlook
    Armstrong was on the fringe of making the Cleveland bullpen at the start of 2016 and ended up starting the season in the majors. But following a debut outing that saw him get taken for one run off two hits, he was sent back to Triple-A Columbus, where he was one of the club’s most-used relievers. As has become expected, Armstrong’s numbers were great at Columbus and he put together a 1.84 ERA and 1.14 WHIP that was complemented by a 35.3 percent K-rate over 47 games (49 innings). After putting in plenty of time with their Triple-A affiliate, Cleveland brought Armstrong back up to the majors near the season’s end. During said stint, he allowed only two runs across 7.2 innings, but walked five batters in that time. For 2017, Armstrong should be on track to begin the year in the middle of Cleveland’s major-league bullpen, and may turn into a decent producer of holds if he replicates his stellar, strikeout filled minor-league performances.
  3. Shawn Armstrong 2016 Preseason Outlook
    Armstrong flashed the same kind of dominant stuff in his brief time with the Indians (0.88 WHIP, 12.4 K/9 in eight innings) that was on display at Triple-A Columbus (49.2 innings, 37 hits, 80 strikeouts, 14.5 K/9, zero homers). The only issue with his Triple-A performance was a poor BB/9 rate (4.7) as he walked 26 batters in just over 49 innings, and that has been an ongoing concern throughout his professional career (4.5 BB/9 across five minor league seasons). The Indians are set at closer with Cody Allen on board, but Bryan Shaw was merely serviceable in a setup role, so there may be opportunities for more high-leverage work. First things first, Armstrong will need to cement his spot in the bullpen with a strong showing in spring training.
