* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against this season's data (min 20 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.

Collette Calls: AL Closers in Waiting
February 2, 2016
Jason Collette looks at the stats to break down each American League bullpen to find the likely next man up for each team this season.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
After struggling in his first trip to the majors last year, O'Rourke returned to Triple-A Rochester and improved with a 1.93 ERA and 9.3 K/9 along with outstanding control (1.9 BB/9). He stuck with the Twins after being called up for a second time in August and had a decent 3.96 ERA and 8.6 K/9 despite a 89.7 mph average fastball. He was especially tough on lefties with a .359 OPS allowed to left-handed batters. O'Rourke should compete for a bullpen spot this spring and could carve out a steady major league role as a lefty specialist.
O'Rourke was a surprise callup to the majors in July after posting a 5.40 ERA at Triple-A. However, the Twins were desperate for a reliever who could get lefties out and O'Rourke had a 18:5 K:BB ratio in 7.1 innings against left-handed hitters in Triple-A. His dominance against lefties continued in the majors with a .560 OPS allowed. Unfortunately, he was terrible against right-handed hitters with a 11.30 ERA and a 5:8 K:BB ratio in 10.1 innings. O'Rourke will compete for a bullpen role again this spring, but his upside looks limited given his low velocity (90.6 mph average fastball) and struggles against right-handed batters.
