Vladimir Gutierrez

26-Year-Old PitcherSP
2022 Fantasy Outlook
Gutierrez made his big-league debut last season and started 22 games for the Reds, and he finished with a 4.74 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 88:46 K:BB across 114 innings. The 26-year-old has a solid four-pitch mix but had an unexceptional 17.7 percent strikeout rate and 9.3 percent walk rate. Gutierrez will begin 2022 in Cincinnati's starting rotation, but given his low strikeout numbers and the fact the team is opting for a rebuild, he's unlikely to be a consistent fantasy asset outside of deeper formats.

Handed another loss
PCincinnati Reds
May 23, 2022
Gutierrez (0-6) allowed four runs on four hits and two walks over four innings Monday, striking out five and taking a loss against the Cubs.
ANALYSIS
Gutierrez took the mound for the first time since May 11 and tossed three scoreless frames before running into trouble in the fourth. He gave up an RBI double to Ian Happ followed by Patrick Wisdom's two-run blast. Gutierrez is now 0-6 with an ugly 8.70 ERA through seven starts this season. He was removed from the rotation earlier this month but never made an appearance out of the bullpen. The 26-year-old is currently lined up to face the Giants at home this weekend but it's unclear if he'll get another start.

* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against 2019 data (min 120 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
The Reds signed the 21-year-old Cuban righty for $4.75 million in late August, which amounts to a $9.5 million commitment from the team, as they exceeded their international bonus pool and incurred a 100 percent tax. At 6-foot-3, 175 pounds, he has a more projectable frame than some of the other top pitchers from last year's international class. Gutierrez can touch 97 mph with his fastball, but typically sits in the low-90s while also bringing a potentially plus curveball to the table. He has flashed an average changeup, and further development of that pitch will be critical for him to make it as a starter. Given his age and repertoire, he should be able to handle a full season league in 2017, likely getting assigned to the Midwest League or Florida State League. Based on the recent track record of Cuban pitchers that come stateside, it is fair to assign more bullpen risk to Gutierrez than a typical pitching prospect with his physical tools.
Gutierrez was perhaps the top pitching prospect in Cuba, winning the Serie Nacional's rookie of the year in the 2014-15 season. In August, Baseball America ranked him as the No. 12 player in Cuba. At age 19, Gutierrez could command a large contract from a MLB team, as he's a 6-foot-3 right-hander with a plus curveball and a projectable frame that should allow him to increase the velocity on his fastball (currently 88-93 mph). Gutierrez also mixes in a changeup and he projects as a starter in the big leagues long-term. However, it may be well into 2016 before he signs as he'll need to secure residency in another country and be declared a free agent in order to sign with a big league club.
