2019 Fantasy Outlook
The 26-year-old Altavilla is a somewhat interesting arm made more interesting by the fact that the Mariners tore it down this winter, leaving the back end of the bullpen pretty wide open. Anthony Swarzak is the most proven option right now, but Swarzak could be traded at any time. So far, a lack of control has held Altavilla back at the highest level. He was especially wild in his 22 appearances for Seattle last season, posting a 17.7% walk rate, but he was able to overcome the free passes to a large extent with strikeouts (27.1 K%) and by inducing a lot of playable contact (13.6 LD%). He threw his fastball at 96 mph on average and got swings and misses with the slider. The track record on the farm suggests the final piece of the puzzle may never come, but if Altavilla can rein in his repertoire even a little, he could carve out a prominent role among Seattle's relief corps.

Altavilla was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Saturday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Altavilla joined the Mariners for the season-opening series in Japan against the Athletics and allowed one hit and one walk while pitching one-third of an inning. The 26-year-old has been shuttled between Triple-A and the majors over the last three seasons and has a 3.28 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 85:36 K:BB across 79.2 major-league innings. Altavilla is likely to have a similar role with Seattle again in 2019.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
Look up "average" in the dictionary and you will see a snapshot of Altavilla's 2017 season. The right-hander averaged 10.0 K/9, which was good but certainly not great for a bullpen arm in this day and age, and the benefits of that swing and miss were offset to a large extent by the walks (3.9 BB/9) and homers (1.74 HR/9). When it was all said and done, Altavilla had a 0.0 fWAR. He will have a tough time curtailing the homers with a 46.9 flyball percentage and 35.4 percent hard-hit rate. Altavilla throws hard and he has high-leverage experience on the farm -- he's racked up 22 saves between Double- and Triple-A over the past two season -- but he only earned two holds in 41 appearances with the big club last year and advancement will be difficult with Juan Nicasio joining Seattle's bullpen ranks in the offseason.
A fifth-round draft pick out of Mercyhurst back in 2014, Altavilla was one of the biggest surprises for the Mariners in 2016. After two seasons as a middling starting pitching prospect in the organization, the 24-year-old converted to being a reliever and flourished. In 56.2 innings with Double-A Jackson, he posted an excellent 1.91 ERA and 1.10 WHIP to go with 16 saves and an excellent 65:22 K:BB. Much to everyone's astonishment, the right-hander was promoted straight to the big leagues in late August, and to shock people even more, he continued to thrive. He allowed just one run in 12.1 innings of work while putting up a 10:1 K:BB in the big leagues. With his upper-90s fastball and biting slider, it seems like his repertoire is built for a late-inning role, a position he very well could claim with a strong spring showing.
