The Marlins designated Mitchell for assignment Wednesday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Mitchell's stint on the 40-man roster and 26-man active roster lasted just under a week, with the 30-year-old right-hander sent out to clear room for starting pitcher Edward Cabrera, who is set to make his MLB debut Wednesday versus the Nationals. In what marked his first big-league action since 2018, Mitchell made two appearances out of the Miami bullpen, giving up two earned runs on five hits and two walks over four innings.

A team must put a starter out on the mound, whether it be for one inning or multiple innings, 162 times in a season. San Diego decided to do that with Mitchell 11 times in 2018, roughly 10 more times than they should have. Mitchell has an incredible lack of swing and miss in his game and is at his best when he can throw pseudo-strikes and force batters to protect the fringes of the zone. When he misses, he is punished with the long ball as he was 12 times in just 73 innings of work last year. Mitchell is ideally the guy you bring into the game when your starter craps the bed and you need someone to soak up some work to give the bullpen some rest on a tough run of the schedule. He should not be someone on your fantasy roster, even after a semi-decent run to close out September.
An offseason trade saw Mitchell land with the Padres, who plan to deploy him as a starter in 2018. Mitchell averaged better than a strikeout per inning as a starter while with the Yankees' Triple-A affiliate in 2017 (9.3 K/9), but that number tumbled to just 4.7 K/9 as he worked mostly in relief with the big-league team. The right-hander clocks in the mid-90s with his fastball and he throws his curveball hard as well (82.8 mph average) with great movement/drop on the pitch. That movement helps Mitchell induce groundballs at a high clip (54.1 percent groundball rate last season) and in turn limit the long balls (0.55 HR/9). Pitching in Petco Park should accentuate that strength. Mitchell's control can be spotty and until he shows better command, he will be a tough sell in standard leagues, but the combination of opportunity and stuff makes Mitchell an interesting flier in NL-only and deep draft-and-hold formats.
Mitchell was expected to take on an important role as a versatile swingman capable of being plugged into the rotation or serving as a long relief option, but he suffered an untimely fractured toe on one of the final days of spring training that ultimately sidelined him until September. Almost as soon as he regained health, injuries to the rest of the rotation forced the 25-year-old to be used exclusively as a starter, where he struggled with command and had more walks (12) than strikeouts (11) in 25 innings. Also of some concern for the young righty: Mitchell's average fastball velocity fell from 96.2 mph in 2015 to 94.8 mph in 2016 - though that could possibly be due in part to a limited sample size of just five starts, and starters often lose giddy-up when leaving the bullpen. He'll likely head back to the bullpen to open up the 2017 season, but he could win a back-end rotation spot out of spring training.
Mitchell split time between Triple-A and the majors in 2015, working as a starter in the minors but primarily as a reliever in the big leagues. Coming out of the bullpen, the 24-year-old was able to get his fastball to average 96.2 mph, up nearly three mph from his 2014 average, but he still struggled overall to the tune of a 6.37 ERA and a 4.9 BB/9 mark. The Yankees already have a surplus of arms that figure to fill in the starting rotation next season, so Mitchell looks set into a bullpen role if he starts the year in the big leagues. It's also possible that the club could keep him as a starter in the minors, where he worked to a 3.12 ERA in 15 starts with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, and keep him reserved as an extra starter in case of injuries.
Mitchell has been developed as a starter throughout his time in the Yankees' organization, but there's reason to wonder if he might follow in the footsteps of Adam Warren and move toward a late-inning role in the near future. Using a three-pitch combination, which includes a mid-90s fastball, a cutter and a curveball, Mitchell gets hitters to swing and miss frequently, but the lack of a changeup is particularly problematic if the Yankees are going to continue to look at him as a potential back-end starter. Ultimately, the role will likely determine his chances of making the Opening Day roster, but a low-leverage middle-relief role is a more likely outcome than a prominent late-inning gig if the Yankees decide to shift him into the bullpen.
