Brad Wieck
27-Year-Old PitcherRP
2019 Fantasy Outlook
A velocity spike in 2017 allowed Wieck to finally clear the last hurdle and make his major-league debut as a 26-year-old last year. He threw seven innings of relief for the Padres, allowing just one run while striking out 10 batters. The lefty's numbers with Double-A San Antonio and Triple-A El Paso were similarly impressive, as he posted a 2.53 ERA in 46.1 innings, striking out 36.1% of batters while walking 8.8%. With a fastball that can touch 99 mph and a plus curveball, Wieck would seem to have plenty of potential as a high-leverage reliever. It would be a surprise to see him push toward the closer conversation in 2019, but he could have some fringe deep-league value regardless as his average appearance last season lasted 1.4 innings, suggesting he'll be more than just a LOOGY.
