Jeffrey Springs
28-Year-Old PitcherRP
2021 Fantasy Outlook
In many ways, Springs is an enigma. His go-to pitch is a sinking fastball, but he mostly throws it up in the zone. It averages about 92 mph, but he generates plenty of whiffs with it, and combined with a plus changeup he posted a career-high 16.9% swinging strike rate last year. The one area where everything goes according to script, unfortunately, is in homers, and when he misses his spot the ball tends to travel a long way. The sum of those parts for the left-hander is a pitcher who best fits in a low-leverage role, absorbing innings in situations where his mistakes aren't too costly. Springs still has a spot on the 40-man roster, so the Red Sox seem willing to give him another chance to emerge as something more. Read Past Outlooks

Collects second save
PTampa Bay Rays
May 5, 2021
Springs earned the save against the Angels on Wednesday, tossing a perfect 1.1 innings and striking out one batter.
ANALYSIS
Springs was extremely efficient in the outing, needing only 14 pitches -- 13 of which were strikes -- to set down all four batters he faced. The left-hander entered with two outs in the bottom of the eighth inning and remained in the game through the next frame to close out the contest. It's a promising development that Springs was given the first save chance following Diego Castillo's (groin) move to the IL, but it's likely that Tampa Bay will choose to proceed with a committee approach rather than slide Springs (or any other reliever) into a full-time closer role. In his fourth big-league season, Springs has registered a 3.21 ERA and 21:6 K:BB across 15.2 innings.
