November 4, 2022
Ellis (shoulder) elected free agency Friday instead of reporting to Triple-A Norfolk, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.
ANALYSIS
Ellis was outrighted to Triple-A on Sunday, but he has decided to test the open market instead of reporting to Norfolk. The right-hander appeared in two games with the Orioles in 2022 before undergoing season-ending shoulder surgery, surrendering five runs over 4.1 innings. The 30-year-old will look to return to his 2021 form at his next destination after posting a 2.15 ERA over seven appearances during that campaign.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2016
2015
The 23-year-old righty had a pretty strong claim as the second best pitching prospect in the Angels' farm system, behind Sean Newcomb, but then Ellis and Newcomb were traded in an offseason deal with Atlanta for Andrelton Simmons. While Ellis was one of the top prospects in a weak Angels system, he simply blends in on the back half of the Braves' top-20 prospect list. He posted a 70:20 K:BB and a 3.88 ERA in 62.2 innings at High-A, and while his strikeouts dipped and his walks spiked in 78 innings at Double-A, he still managed to post a 3.92 ERA in 15 starts. Ellis probably has the upside of a No. 4 starter, with a more likely role as a No. 5 starter or a swing man. At 6-foot-4, he operates with a low-90s fastball and a mid-80s slider, with his changeup representing his best offering. Look for him to open 2016 at Double-A with a chance to finish the year in Triple-A.
A third-round pick by the Angels in the 2014 amateur draft, Ellis had his first crack at rookie ball in 2014, and did not fare well, allowing 12 earned runs and giving up eight walks in 15.2 innings. While such a small sample size on a young arm is likely indicative of nothing by itself, Ellis has been known to be erratic with his command, as he posted a 3.3 BB/9 in 169 innings at Ole Miss. Ellis has a low-to-mid-90s fastball to go with a promising curveball and changeup, but he has trouble controlling the bender at times. The 22-year-old capped off his collegiate career with a flourish, posting a 2.55 ERA in 19 games (18 starts) in 2014. While he's certainly a work in progress, Ellis could potentially develop two plus secondary pitches, which would aid in his ascent through the minor leagues.
