Jokisch is considering a return to MLB this offseason, Robert Murray of reports.
The 31-year-old lefty's only big-league experience to date came back in 2014, when he made four appearances for the Cubs. After spending the next four seasons stuck in the upper minors, he signed with the Kiwoom Heroes (then called the Nexen Heroes) of the KBO in South Korea prior to the 2019 season. He's had plenty of success in his two seasons overseas, posting a 2.67 ERA and 1.10 WHIP, including a league-leading 2.14 ERA this past season. He's not much of a strikeout arm, though his 18.0 percent strikeout rate was at least slightly above the average mark in the KBO. Whether or not MLB teams believe the veteran southpaw can get hitters out at the highest level without strikeout stuff remains to be seen.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
After a cup of coffee in Chicago in 2014, Jokisch might have expected a bit more run in the majors in 2015, but it didn't quite happen that way as a blister on his throwing hand sidelined him for nearly two months. When he did pitch, he was his usual hittable self, and his strikeout rate - not exactly high to begin with - was way down in 2015. A 47:26 K:BB in 81.1 minor league innings rarely leads to a promotion to the big leagues. Expect Jokisch to spend another year starting for Triple-A Iowa, with the possibility of a spot start with the Cubs if disaster strikes and the stars align with his schedule.
After starting 26 games for Triple-A Iowa last year, Jokisch got a cup of coffee with the Cubs in September, pitching in four games (including one start). His 143:31 K:BB ratio in 158.1 innings shows some promise, but the 25-year-old lefty isn't a big-time prospect. He's likely to be one of the anchors for the Iowa rotation again in 2015, though he could occasionally be called up to spot start when injuries strike the big-league team.
