Arodys Vizcaino
28-Year-Old PitcherRP
Atlanta Braves
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Heading into the 2018 draft season, there were red flags and questions about Vizcaino's ability to last as a closer. His ERA and FIP were nearly a full run apart, and as a heavy flyball pitcher, he struggled with the long ball. He did nothing in 2018 to alleviate those concerns, and in fact exacerbated some of them. His ERA and FIP were 1.5 runs apart as he somehow stranded an absurd 92% of his baserunners despite a drop in strikeouts and a spike in his walks. He is much tougher on righties than he is lefties thanks to his arm angle and repertoire, as he struggles with his control when lefties are up at the plate. Vizcaino's arm angle and stuff are best suited for a righty specialist role as his overall numbers against lefties have been terrible the past few seasons. Atlanta is now a contender and can ill-afford this risky skill set as their full-time closer for 2019. Read Past Outlooks
