* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against 2019 data (min 30 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2021
2020
You don't see this often: a 9.82 ERA with a 4.76 FIP. A 43.1 LOB% will do that to a man. Coonrod added a tick of velocity and was pumping 98 mph on average with his fastballs in 2020, but even so his strikeout rate remained modest at 21.1%. Even worse, Coonrod hit the injured list with a lat strain early on and his season was bookended by a shoulder strain. His sinker was knocked around pretty good and had a whiff rate of just 15%, but the changeup and slider have shown flashes, so some sort of pitch-mix tweak could help Coonrod establish himself at the major-league level. He was traded to the Phillies in January of 2021 and could climb the ladder quickly if the arm trouble is behind him.
Once an up-and-coming starter in the Giants' farm system, Coonrod switched to a relief role late in 2017 and spent most of the following season recovering from Tommy John surgery. Despite struggling with a 6.96 ERA across 32.1 innings in Triple-A last season, Coonrod was brought up by San Francisco and eventually settled into a middle-relief role. The right-hander did well enough in 27.1 big-league frames, posting a 5-1 record along with a 3.58 ERA. However, his ERA was buoyed by an unsustainable .222 BABIP, resulting in an unimpressive 5.24 FIP. Moreover, Coonrod's ability to throw heat -- his fastball clocks in at over 96 mph -- translated to a paltry 17.5 K% at the big-league level while his walk rate was a troubling 13.2%. Coonrod's role could expand as San Francisco's bullpen will undergo major changes in the offseason, but there's little reason to believe that he'll carry any fantasy value in 2020.
