Cessa has served in a similar capacity on the Yankees' pitching staff over the past two years. He's capable of eating innings out of the bullpen or making a few spot starts in a pinch, though the righty was far more effective working in relief last year (3.14 ERA vs. 5.82 ERA in five starts). He was primarily a starter in the minors, as he also made 14 appearances (13 starts) with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. With the rotation appearing to be fully spoken for heading into the spring and a crowded bullpen behind the starting five, it may be difficult for Cessa to carve out a consistent role with the big-league club. The 25-year-old could once again occupy something of a swingman role, but it's also possible he stays stretched out as a starter in the minors.

  2. Luis Cessa 2017 Preseason Outlook
    Cessa was a surprise addition to the roster out of spring training, as he won a bullpen job out of camp. He essentially split time as a starter and a reliever, working his way toward a couple of spot starts before eventually joining the rotation full-time at the end of the season. The 24-year-old struggled at times with command and with the long ball, but he was more effective overall when working as a starter, where he put together a 4.01 ERA and 1.07 WHIP in nine starts. It's unclear exactly how the Yankees plan on using him next season -- whether he'll be in the bullpen or rotation, or even in the majors at all -- though the most likely scenario is he'll once again be deployed as a swing man.
  3. Luis Cessa 2016 Preseason Outlook
    While Cessa cannot match the mid-rotation upside of Michael Fulmer, the other pitching prospect Detroit received in the Yoenis Cespedes trade, he offers a nice combination of floor and proximity. The 23-year-old righty, now with the Yankees following an offseason trade for Justin Wilson, had a FIP below 4.00 across stops with the Mets Double-A and Triple-A affiliates prior to the trade to the Tigers. He then closed out the year with a 3.40 FIP and 34:15 K:BB in 37.2 innings with Triple-A Toledo — strong numbers, but he may have to head back to the Triple-A level to begin 2016 and prove himself to his new organization . He has four average or better pitches, so it will be Cessa’s command that determines how successful he can eventually be against big-league hitters.
