Past Fantasy Outlooks
2013
2012
Canzler did enough at Triple-A Columbus (22 homers, 79 RBI, .815 OPS) to warrant a September audition but struggled for the Indians, posting a .697 OPS with an ugly 4:22 BB:K in 97 plate appearances in September. The Yankees claimed him off waivers during the offseason, and considering that he split his time between first base, DH and the outfield last season, a similar bench role could be on tap if he breaks camp with the Yankees.
Canzler had a solid season at Triple-A Durham, finishing the season with 18 home runs and a .401 OBP. He had a cup of coffee with the Rays in September but a 23.5 percent strikeout rate in the minors suggests he's probably not ready for the big show. Look for him to compete for a bench spot during spring with the Indians during spring training after being acquired for a player to be named later in January.
