2019 Fantasy Outlook
Triggs was bitten by the injury bug for a second consecutive season; after a hip injury limited him to 12 starts in 2017, the 29-year-old made just nine appearances in 2018 before landing on the disabled list in May with a right forearm issue. He never returned to the active roster, as his rehab was shut down twice after a pair of setbacks -- the second of which resulted in Triggs undergoing thoracic outlet surgery in September. When healthy, Triggs struck out more than a batter per inning (9.4 K/9) for the first time in his career, though he struggled to a 5.23 ERA across 41.1 frames thanks to poor walk (3.9 BB/9) and home-run (1.5 HR/9) rates. While he's expected to be fully healthy for spring training, it's difficult to know what to expect from Triggs in 2019 given the seriousness of the procedure he underwent. Factor in Oakland's intention to use him out of the bullpen and Triggs can be left alone in most formats. Read Past Outlooks

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
After his first eight starts, Triggs checked in with a sparkling 2.12 ERA and 1.03 WHIP, despite only 35 whiffs in those 46.2 innings. The key was allowing just two homers, a number most thought would increase, considering the right-hander's pitch-to-contact style. Sure enough, Triggs surrendered at least one homer in each of his next four outings, including five over the final pair. This ballooned his ERA to 4.27 and WHIP to 1.33, where it would stay since he then had season-ending surgery to repair the labrum in his left hip. It would have been beneficial to see how Triggs adjusted to the home run barrage, but now we're left in the lurch, concerned about his recovery from surgery, and still unsure of his ability to work as a starter. If healthy, Triggs should secure a spot in the Athletics' Opening Day rotation. Anyone pitching in the Coliseum is worth considering, though Triggs' low strikeout total dampens his potential, especially in mixed formats.
If there was a player who truly embodied the concept of shuttling between Triple-A and the majors, it was Triggs in the 2016 campaign. The tall right-hander was optioned to Triple-A Nashville a grand total of eight times, but he kept reappearing in the big leagues thanks to a stellar 2.95 ERA and 1.16 WHIP out of the Sounds' bullpen. His results in the majors were mixed, as he only managed to post a 5.35 ERA and 1.57 WHIP in his first 19 appearances in a long relief role for Oakland, although he did post a solid 9.1 K/9 during that span. The 28-year-old really turned it on at the end of the season when he was afforded a full-time rotation spot, as he put together a 2.78 ERA and 0.71 WHIP thanks to an impeccable 21:1 K:BB across five late-season starts. A back injury ended his season prematurely, but if he can return to this form while limiting the walks, then Triggs could be in line for a full-time rotation spot this spring.
