December 23, 2018
Ravin announced Friday via his personal Twitter account that he has signed with the Chiba Lotte Marines of Japan's Nippon Professional Baseball league for the 2019 season.
The 30-year-old heads overseas after making 35 appearances at the big-league level with the Dodgers and Braves over parts of the last four seasons, logging a 5.12 ERA and 10.4 K/9 in 38.2 innings in those outings. Ravin's contract is likely a one-year deal that will allow him to return to North America after the season if he draws renewed interest from MLB teams.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Ravin couldn't have been blamed if he wanted a little time away from baseball after the year he had. Between the end of the 2015 season and his 2016 debut in August, Ravin underwent sports hernia surgery, broke his arm in a car crash, lost 20 pounds due to flu and strep throat, was suspended 80 games for PEDs he said he took to regain the weight, and nearly lost his brother to multiple gunshots. Despite all of that, the hard-throwing right-hander made his way back to the Dodgers bullpen and looked impressive in his 9.2 innings, striking out 13 and allowing a single earned run. However, that is a limited sample against a track record of high ERAs in affiliated leagues throughout his minor league career. Still, Ravin's high-90s fastball and mid-80s slider have both gotten whiffs so far, and an arsenal like that alone should make Ravin a name to know as the Dodgers sort out their bullpen for 2017.
It took him until age 27, but Ravin made his big league debut on June 2 last year, ultimately posting a 6.75 ERA and 1.82 WHIP in nine relief appearances (9.1 innings). He was ultimately sent back to Triple-A where his season ended with sports hernia surgery in September. The one number that stands out in a positive way at least, is Ravin's average fastball velocity: 97.1 mph. He also posted a 12.2 K/9 in 28 Triple-A innings last season, though he often had serious trouble locating the ball as indicated by a 5.1 BB/9. The ability to hit the upper-90s with his fastball will get Ravin another look in big league camp, but unless he can fix his command and control issues, Ravin is likely looking at opening back up in Triple-A. Plenty of guys have made mechanical adjustments that allowed them to be effective big leaguers, so don't lose track of Ravin. You can't teach velocity.
