2018 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks

Transferred to 60-day DL

Elbow
April 14, 2018
Lamet (elbow) was moved to the 60-day disabled list Saturday, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Lamet is out for the entirety of the 2018 season after electing to undergo Tommy John surgery. He was moved to the 60-day DL in order to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for Tyler Webb, who was claimed off waivers from Milwaukee. Assuming a typical recovery timeline, Lamet will be able to return midway through the 2019 season.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
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.
