Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
Curtis had an impressive season at Triple-A last year with a 1.85 ERA and 12.3 K/9. He struggled in his first trip to the majors with a 8.31 ERA and allowing nine hits and two home runs in 8.2 innings. However, he had a 10.4 K/9 in the majors. He should be back in the majors at some point this summer due to his velocity (95.2 mph average fastball) and decent control. He could have a high-leverage role in the bullpen eventually if he can improve his off-speed pitches.
The 6th-round 2014 draft pick had an impressive 12.5 K/9 between High-A and Low-A last season. He then followed up with a 2.84 ERA and 12.8 K/9 in the Arizona Fall League. He'll begin in Double-A and could advance rapidly as the Twins are in need of bullpen arms with high strikeout rates.
