Colin Poche
25-Year-Old PitcherRP
Tampa Bay Rays AAA
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Poche dominated the minors for the second straight season in 2018, recording an incredible 0.82 ERA in 66 innings at the Double-A and Triple-A levels in the Diamondbacks' and Rays' organizations. That followed a campaign in which he posted a 1.25 ERA in 50.1 innings at Low-A and High-A. The success came on the back of a 45.6% strikeout rate, a surprising number given that his fastball sits just 89-92 mph and given that he hasn't had all that much prospect hype. He's also given up just two homers over the last two seasons combined. Poche's fast rise and incredible numbers suggest that it won't be long before he reaches the big leagues, and he should be more than a lefty specialist once he gets there. Once he lands in the major-league bullpen, Poche could rise up the ranks quickly thanks to his high strikeout totals. Read Past Outlooks

PTampa Bay Rays  AAA
May 15, 2018
Poche tossed three scoreless frames in relief Monday in his debut for Triple-A Durham, giving up a hit and a walk while striking out five.
ANALYSIS
Poche, whom the Rays acquired from the Diamondbacks earlier this month to complete the February trade that sent Steven Souza to the desert, has made a remarkable first impression with his new organization. After striking out 23 batters and giving up no runs over 11 innings at the Diamondbacks' Double-A affiliate in Jackson, the reliever made three scoreless appearances at Double-A Montgomery to earn a promotion to the International League. He breezed through his first outing at Durham and has now opened the campaign with a 37:3 K:BB, 0.42 WHIP and spotless ERA through 19 innings between the three affiliates. The 24-year-old doesn't possess a spot on the Rays' 40-man roster, but if he continues to dazzle at Triple-A in his subsequent appearances, it will become increasingly difficult for Tampa Bay to keep him on the farm.
