2023 Fantasy Outlook
With the success of Spencer Strider and others, the fastball/slider strikeout mavens who may have been pigeonholed as relievers a decade ago are now going to get a chance to start. Berroa's shortcomings (command, changeup) are the reason he is already on his third team (traded from the Giants to Mariners last season), but his dynasty value is at an all-time high due to his elite 2022 under-the-hood rates. His 15.3 BB% across High-A and Double-A is ugly, but everything else is exciting, including his called strike plus whiff, chase rate and zone whiff rate, per Prospects Live. Berroa is a groundball pitcher and opposing batters hit .158 against him, so he doesn't need pinpoint control to turn a lineup over multiple times. Every pitching prospect carries some level of risk, and outside the top handful, the risk gets pretty extreme. With this in mind, Berroa is a worthwhile flier in most dynasty formats, just in case he takes a step forward with his control. Read Past Outlooks

Moving to relief
PSeattle Mariners  AA
May 10, 2023
Berroa has transitioned to a relief role with Double-A Arkansas, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
The 23-year-old righty opened the year in the Double-A rotation, but after walking 19 batters and giving up 13 earned runs in 22.2 innings across five starts, Seattle will look to fast-track him as a reliever. Berroa, who is already on the 40-man roster, has a premium fastball/slider combination that could play up in a high-leverage role, assuming he can throw enough strikes.
