Baltimore Orioles
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Kremer entered the season as one of Baltimore's better upper-level pitching prospects, one received from the Dodgers in the Manny Machado trade. He pitched at three levels in 2019 and made four starts for the big-league club in 2020. He throws an assortment of pitches, highlighted by a fastball that makes up with movement what it lacks in velocity. Despite not lighting up radar guns, Kremer sports a career 10.9 K/9 in the minor leagues in over 350 innings of work. He has just under 40 innings of professional experience above Double-A, and in another organization, he would likely be headed back to the minors in 2021. However, it's audition time for the Orioles' young players and Kremer has the potential to be a serviceable back-end starter if he can stay consistent. He bears watching, especially if he improves his changeup. Read Past Outlooks

June 25, 2021
Kremer was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Friday.
ANALYSIS
The 25-year-old surrendered six runs while recording only one out in Thursday's start versus Toronto, prompting his return to the minors. Kremer has made 12 starts for the Orioles this season and has struggled with a 7.25 ERA, 1.61 WHIP and 45:24 K:BB across 49.2 innings. He may need to show significant improvement at Triple-A in order to receive another look in the big-league rotation.

* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against 2019 data (min 120 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
Baltimore has assembled a strong farm system, with Kremer one of the top pitching prospects, acquired as part of the haul for Manny Machado. It may seem like the 24-year old righty is a little behind in his development, having thrown only 19.1 innings at the Triple-A level, but Kremer didn't focus on pitching full-time until junior college. The first ever Israeli drafted into MLB throws four pitches with his curve the best offering. His fastball sits low 90s but touches 96. Kremer also throws a plus slider but needs to improve his change to help handle lefthanded batters. He'll likely begin the season with Triple-A Norfolk, looking to improve upon the 8.84 ERA and 1.78 WHIP in four starts to close out 2019. Kremer's tendency is to improve the second time at a level so don't judge the small sample. Camden Yards is a tough place to pitch but Kremer has the potential to be a fantasy asset down the line.
