$Agreed to a minor league deal with the Orioles in February of 2016.
PBaltimore Orioles  
February 2, 2016
Dwyer agreed to a minor league deal with the Orioles on Tuesday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
ANALYSIS
Dwyer spent the entirety of 2015 with the Royals' Triple-A affiliate, working to a 4.01 ERA with just a 63:55 K:BB ratio in 33 appearances (10 starts). The 27-year-old has pitched in just two major league games in his career, so he figures to serve more as organizational depth both in the rotation and in the bullpen for the Orioles.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2014
2012
2011
Dwyer completed his first full season at the Triple-A level last year and while he made 29 appearances (28 starts) and posted a 3.55 ERA over 159.2 innings, his 1.56 K/BB and 4.34 FIP made him a little less attractive of an option. Granted, he improved on his 50.1-inning appearance at the same level the year before, but a 6.3 K/9 at Triple-A isn't exactly considered impressive. He'll likely stay at the same level in 2014 and will need to make bigger strides if he hopes to advance further within the organization, but unless there's a dramatic turnaround, he'll probably stay right where he is now.
In his first full season at Double-A Northwest Arkansas, Dwyer produced dire results as he had 126 strikeouts and 78 walks with a 5.60 ERA over 141.1 innings. It wasn't all bad though as he finished out the season strong with a 56:19 K:BB and 3.05 ERA over his last nine starts. He needs to go on a serious walks diet as his control issues have him handing out free passes at the rate of nearly 5.0 BB/9IP, since he stepped foot in Double-A. A fringe top-10 prospect within the Royals' system, owners would be wise to wait and see if Dwyer can make this rather large adjustment to his game, before investing in him.
A fourth-round pick out of Clemson in 2009, Dwyer features a plus curveball supported by a good fastball with consistent control. He'll be 23 in April, when he's bound to open the season as part of the rotation at Double-A Northwest Arkansas. Dwyer had little difficulty retiring hitters at High-A Wilmington last season while striking out more than a batter per inning before a back injury ended his season in July. Like the cast of promising young arms set to join him at Double-A this season, Dwyer should factor into the Royals' plans within the next two seasons.
