2024 Fantasy Outlook
Pepiot's spring training ended with an oblique injury which led to him nearly five months at the big league level as he did not make his first major league start until Aug. 19. Pepiot worked 62.2 innings between Triple-A and the majors with excellent ratios and a 64:10 K:BB. Big league hitters hit no better than .203 off any one of his offerings while each of them had at least a 23 percent whiff rate. He did allow a homer in five of his eight outings including multiple homers in two of them, which is something to watch as he continues to hone his craft. Pepiot did work just over 100 innings in 2021 and 127 in 2002, so a projected workload of 140 innings should be reasonable for him in 2024. Banking on Pepiot for 160-plus innings in 2023 would be greedy, so draft him accordingly, as his workload could be managed a bit. Adding another pitch to his repertoire would help him reduce his issues against righties. Read Past Outlooks

Sharp in second win
PTampa Bay Rays
April 18, 2024
Pepiot (2-2) earned the win against the Angels on Thursday, allowing one run on three hits and three walks over six innings. He struck out seven.
ANALYSIS
It was a strong bounce-back effort from Pepiot after he allowed five runs in a loss to San Francisco in his last start. The right-hander blanked the Angels through five innings Thursday, ultimately allowing a lone run on a sacrifice fly in the sixth. It's been a mixed bag for Pepiot result-wise through four starts this year, though his underlying metrics are impressive. He lowered his ERA to 4.37 with an encouraging 1.01 WHIP and 27:8 K:BB across 22.2 innings this season.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Part of potential trade
PLos Angeles Dodgers
December 13, 2023
The Rays are in talks to acquire Pepiot and Jonny DeLuca from the Dodgers in exchange for Tyler Glasnow and Manuel Margot, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
The deal is not completed and could be tweaked, per Rosenthal, but it would seem talks between the two clubs are heating up. Pepiot would be a good get for the Rays as a young, controllable starter who is coming off a nice showing in 2023, albeit one which was limited by injury. The 26-year-old posted a 2.14 ERA and 38:5 K:BB over 42 innings during his time with the Dodgers this season.
See All MLB Rumors
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Pepiot rebounded from a rough initial stint in Triple-A in 2021 to post a 2.56 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 114:36 K:BB over 91.1 innings at that level last season. The improvement led Los Angeles to call upon the right-hander on nine occasions when in need of a spot starter or primary pitcher, and he held his own in the majors with a 3.47 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 26.3% strikeout rate. Pepiot's 16.9% walk rate was less encouraging and highlights the primary obstacle in his path to becoming a front-of-rotation starter. There's a lot to love about his stuff, particularly his devastating changeup that is regarded as perhaps the best in the minors. His fastball also grades out well above-average, but his struggles with commanding it have at times impaired his ability to maximize the effectiveness of the changeup. Pepiot's command issues also led to too many home runs while up in the majors last season (six in 36.1 innings), and it's clear that learning to harness his arsenal will be key to his success moving forward. The Dodgers could certainly fill their need for a No. 5 starter with an offseason acquisition, but if they opt to look internally, Pepiot would likely be among the candidates to compete for the role.
