2019 Fantasy Outlook
Borucki wears 56 in honor of his idol growing up, Mark Buehrle. Like the former White Sox great, Borucki is a lefty with good command who works quickly and features a changeup. His change had a top-25 swinging-strike rate last season and generated a higher percentage of whiffs than the same pitch from Zack Greinke, Dallas Keuchel, Jeremy Hellickson or Luke Weaver, to name a few specialists. What has been intriguing about this kid is how he has skyrocketed through the system, going from High-A to the majors in under two seasons, and he's done it without skipping much of a beat. His 2018 MLB strikeout rate was below average for a starting pitcher, but he had higher rates throughout the minor leagues. He could be a sneaky play in 2019 in deeper leagues, but with a level of risk that comes from pitching in a division loaded with tough hitting and mostly filled with ballparks with unforgiving run environments.

Cleared for game action
PToronto Blue Jays
Elbow
June 26, 2019
Borucki (elbow) is scheduled to pitch for the Gulf Coast League Blue Jays on Wednesday, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.
ANALYSIS
Per Zwelling, Borucki is scheduled to throw three innings in what will mark his first game action since injuring his elbow near the end of spring training. The right-hander will need plenty of time to build back up given the length of his absence, suggesting a return is at least multiple weeks away.
