RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Strop has quietly established himself as one of the most consistent setup men in the league, with 2016 marking his third consecutive season with an ERA under 3.00. Despite missing most of August and September following knee surgery, Strop helped anchor the bullpen of the title-winning Cubs, finishing the regular season with a 2.85 ERA and 0.89 WHIP to go along with a 2-2 record and 60 strikeouts in just 47.1 innings pitched, which equates to an elite 11.4 strikeouts per nine innings. He reached 20 holds for a third straight season, even with his time missed due to injury. Strop dropped his walk rate to 2.9 BB/9 (easily a career-best), down from 3.8 in 2015, while posting a groundball rate just south of 60 percent. Strop figures to remain in a high-leverage role in 2017, potentially handling primary setup duties in front of Wade Davis.

2016

Most Cubs fans will remember the 2013 Scott Feldman trade as the deal that brought Jake Arrieta to Chicago, but Strop also came over in that deal, and he's been arguably the best player in the Cubs' bullpen over the last three seasons. Strop's 28 holds ranked third in the National League, and he struck out a career-high 10.7 batters per nine innings in 2015. While he gives up a few too many free passes to be trusted as an elite closer, he only walked three in his final 18 appearances of the season, and he has been used in the ninth inning at times over the last few years. Although Hector Rondon's performance as the closer over the last two years has been strong, he doesn't quite have a vise grip on the job. Strop is definitely the target for those who don't have confidence that Rondon can keep the role.

2015

Going into last season, Strop was a sleeper to earn some saves for the Cubs, as no one believed Jose Veras would last the whole year as the closer. Though Strop got an early save and Veras was out of a job by mid-April, the job ultimately went to Hector Rondon. That said, Strop was still an important part of the bullpen, earning 21 holds to go with a 2.21 ERA and 71 strikeouts in 61 innings. Add in the 35 innings he pitched after coming over from the Orioles in 2013 and Strop now has nearly a 100-inning sample of strong pitching in the National League. Expect him to continue his success as a setup man for the Cubs this year.

2014

Though Strop did not help move the needle in a pennant race, few pitchers took more advantage of a change in scenery last year. His 22.1 innings with the Orioles included a forgettable 7.25 ERA, among other atrocities, but three great post-trade months with the Cubs have Strop possibly in a position to close this year. In 35 innings with the Cubs, he had an outstanding 42:11 K:BB ratio and a low strand rate of 63.6%, suggesting that he might have actually been a bit unlucky. The Cubs should be looking for bullpen help during the offseason, but with Kevin Gregg now gone, Strop could be their top closing option. Don't forget him on draft day.

2013

Strop spent most of the 2012 season as the primary setup man for Jim Johnson and he used his fastball-slider combo to churn out a 1.67 ERA and 1.19 WHIP for the first half. He slipped some in the second half, but the Orioles are rumored to think that Strop is a closer in waiting. Strop averaged nearly 97 mph on his fastball, up from 94 mph in 2011. If Strop can cut down on his walk rate (5.0 BB/9) he could inch toward his potential as a future ninth-inning option.

2012

Strop, who was traded from the Rangers to the Orioles midseason, really settled in after the move, posting a 0.73 ERA in 12 appearances with Baltimore. Still, the same control issues which have defined his career have lingered. He had a 4.09 BB/9IP for the whole season and owns a 5.67 career mark. If he can find the strike zone, his strikeout numbers could carry him to usefulness (9.30 K/9IP), but for now he is still a work in progress

2011

Strop shuttled back and forth between Triple-A Oklahoma City and the majors last season, posting poor numbers with Texas (10.2 innings, 17 hits, 12 earned runs, 11:11 K:BB) and excellent numbers in the minors (42.1 innings, 32 hits, nine earned runs, 57:14 K:BB). Whether he'll be able to translate his minor-league success into something serviceable in the majors remains to be seen.

2010

Strop showed limited upside, getting sent down to Double-A Frisco after getting bombed early on at Triple-A Oklahoma City. His numbers at Double-A Frisco (51.1 innings, 48 hits, 48:29 K:BB) weren't good, and the promise he showed back in 2007 at Single-A (54.2 innings, 75 K) after being converted from a shortstop may have been left on the operating table back in 2008 when he underwent surgery for an elbow fracture.
