Geoff Hartlieb
26-Year-Old PitcherRP
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Hartlieb made his MLB debut in mid-May and spent most of the rest of the year in the big leagues, throwing 35 innings across 29 relief appearances. His FIP was nearly 3.5 runs lower than his ERA, but that's hardly consolation when said ERA comes in at an even 9.00. As with most ERAs that high, quite a bit of bad luck was involved, as he allowed a .411 BABIP. That's not to say he pitched well, however: Statcast gave him an xBA of .297 and an xSLG of .504. Hartlieb's 22.2% strikeout rate and 10.5% walk rate weren't terrible but were both worse than league average. If there's any hope for the 26-year-old's future, it lies in his numbers in 39.2 innings for Triple-A Indianapolis, where he posted a 2.50 ERA and a 30.7% strikeout rate. Until he shows something remotely like that at the big-league level, however, he's not an arm worth keeping an eye on for fantasy owners. Read Past Outlooks

PPittsburgh Pirates
June 30, 2020
The Pirates announced Sunday that Hartlieb is included in their initial 60-man roster pool, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Thanks to the expanded roster for the 60-game season, Hartlieb will stick around with the big club in 2020 after he was initially optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on March 20. Over 29 appearances out of the Pittsburgh bullpen in 2019, Hartlieb posted a 9.00 ERA, 2.00 WHIP and 38:18 K:BB in 35 innings.

Stat Review
How does Geoff Hartlieb compare to other relievers?
This section compares his stats with all relief pitcher seasons from the previous three seasons (minimum 30 innings)*. The bar represents the player's percentile rank. For example, if the bar is halfway across, then the player falls into the 50th percentile for that stat and it would be considered average.

* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against 2019 data (min 30 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.
