Elbow
November 20, 2018
Weigel (elbow) was added to the Braves' 40-man roster Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
A hard-throwing righty who underwent Tommy John surgery in June of 2017, Weigel should report to spring training with minimal restrictions, as he embarked on a rehab assignment at the end of the 2018 season. He struggled in a brief taste of Triple-A before tearing his UCL, and will likely return to that level at the outset of 2019. In most organizations he would be on track to be a starter, but the Braves have so much high-end pitching depth that it's possible they transition Weigel to a relief role sooner than later.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
The Braves scouting and player development staff can take great pride in Weigel's 2016 season. He was a hard-throwing reliever at Houston whose lack of control had most pegging him for a bullpen role as a professional. However, the Braves successfully transitioned him to a starter, and after a dominant year at Low-A where he posted a 25.8 percent strikeout rate with a palatable nine percent walk rate, Weigel (a seventh-round pick) looks like one of the steals of the 2015 draft. His repertoire includes a mid-90s fastball, a quality changeup that flashes plus and a slider that works as a useful chase pitch when he sequences well. The late movement he gets on all of his pitches is what really stands out, and it's that late life that allows him to be effectively wild when his command is not on point. His 6-foot-6, 220-pound frame is ideal for handling a starter's workload, and he could move fast after holding his own in a three-start run with Double-A Mississippi to close out the year. This is an under-the-radar arm with mid-rotation upside.
