2019 Fantasy Outlook
Lamet tantalized with his performance in 2017, making him a popular sleeper during draft season, but he did not end up throwing a single pitch in 2018. The right-hander left a March 25 spring training game with elbow discomfort, and while the Padres were initially hopeful that they would get him back in the rotation by May, Tommy John surgery was ultimately deemed necessary. There has been little from the team regarding his progress, but Lamet will likely be out until the summer months. The last time we saw Lamet in regular-season action, he was dominating right-handed batters while showing an impressive strikeout punch. His detractors wisely pointed to the lack of a third pitch -- he began throwing a curveball last spring before getting hurt -- and the heavy reliance on the slider. He's a big unknown after the long layoff and it's probably wise to just wait and see if he can A) return to full health and B) regain a similar level of effectiveness. Read Past Outlooks

Lamet gave up four runs on six hits and two walks while striking out 10 through five innings in a no-decision agains the Dodgers on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
Lamet allowed three runs in the first two innings, but he settled down to only give up one more run in his final three frames. Lamet registered 11 swinging strikes and 18 called strikes, but he also allowed three home runs. The 27-year-old will finish the season with a 3-5 record with a 4.07 ERA and 105 strikeouts through 73 innings, with 24 of those whiffs coming in his final two starts.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
Lamet rode his high-90s fastball and wipeout slider to a 28.7 strikeout percentage in 2017, which ranked 12th among major-league pitchers with 100-plus innings. The 25-year-old only worked 49.2 Triple-A innings, so he lacks polish around the plate (4.3 BB/9 with the Padres, 3.8 in his minor-league career). It's also difficult to trust this lineup for run support. Even with these obstacles, he showed promise in the second half, sporting a 3.80 ERA with 84 strikeouts in 73.1 innings while giving up just 0.98 homers per nine innings, hinting he may be correcting that major issue. Developing a reliable third pitch -- his changeup or sinker -- might be Lamet's elixir for left-handed bats, who tagged him for a .364 wOBA. Petco Park provides a favorable environment for talented pitchers to develop, and cheap investments in flawed, strikeout-heavy arms often go a long way in fantasy.
This is an example of how scouting the stats can be dangerous. Lamet's minor league numbers last year, particularly his 91:31 K:BB in 74.1 innings at Double-A, would suggest he is a promising pitching prospect with the potential to make an impact in the big league rotation this season. He may make an impact in the majors in 2017, but it is unlikely to be as a successful starting pitcher. His command is shaky at best, and he lacks a third pitch. At 24 years old, it is hard to expect that third pitch to show up, leaving Lamet destined for relief. Of course, considering the lack of quality options in the big league rotation, he may be allowed to fail as a starter before the transition to the bullpen is made. Once in the bullpen, his fastball should sit in the mid-to-high-90s and his slider could serve as an out pitch, meaning a high-leverage role could be in store down the road.
