Caleb Ferguson
22-Year-Old PitcherRP
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Rarely do 38th-round picks make it to the major leagues, let alone enjoy the type of success that Ferguson did as a rookie. The left-hander spent the vast majority of his time with Los Angeles in the bullpen, making 26 relief appearances against three starts. Home runs were a problem (1.47 HR/9, 21.1% HR/FB), but Ferguson showed an ability to miss bats and limit walks, posting a robust 23.3 K-BB%. That was a top-35 mark among all pitchers with at least 40 innings. After working multiple innings out of the bullpen initially, he shortened up later in the year when the team was without closer Kenley Jansen and worked his way into higher-leverage innings, even earning a pair of saves to go along with his five holds and seven wins. In another organization, Ferguson may get a longer look as a starter, but he's mostly a two-pitch guy and as long as he's a Dodger, he will likely remain in a bullpen role. Read Past Outlooks

Building up to three innings
PLos Angeles Dodgers
March 8, 2019
Ferguson will build up to a three-inning workload this spring, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Ferguson was a starter almost exclusively in the minors but started in just three of his 29 big-league appearances last season. There was some thought that he'd stretch out as a starter this spring, but the team will apparently prepare him for a flexible, multi-inning role.
