2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

While Hunter Strickland had all the preseason buzz as a potential breakout reliever, Law was the true San Francisco surprise, posting stellar numbers during his rookie campaign, including 14 holds and a 5.56 K/BB. He was consistently the Giants' best reliever while he was healthy and even served as the team's closer for a brief period after Santiago Casilla was demoted from the position. Law has four reliable pitches, headlined by his mid- to high-90s fastball. San Francisco added Mark Melancon this offseason to shore up that mediocre bullpen, so Law does not project to get many saves in the foreseeable future. However, he would be in that mix if Melancon were to suffer an injury. For now, Law will serve as a source of solid ratios and strikeouts for owners in deep leagues.

2016

While his 4.56 ERA with Double-A Richmond may not say it, Law had a very successful return from Tommy John surgery in 2015. His ability to strikeout batters at a high clip returned (11.2 K/9) and he corrected the control issues that popped up before his elbow gave out (2.8 BB/9). He continued to limit the long ball (0.35 HR/9) and his 2.22 FIP shows that he suffered some poor luck, likely a result of his 61.2 LOB% with Richmond. With another offseason of rest under his belt, Law will look to make his case for the 2016 Opening Day roster after being one of the final cuts in 2015.

2015

Law's walk rate nearly tripled with the move up to Double-A Richmond in 2014 (from 1.6 BB/9 to 4.5 BB/9), but the right-hander still finished with a 2.57 ERA, marking the fourth time he has posted a sub-3.00 ERA in as many professional seasons. A ninth-round pick out of Miami-Dade College in 2011, he also saw his strikeout rate dip by more than four per nine innings in 2014 (from 13.8 K/9 to 9.3 K/9), but Law has been able to sustain success as he has moved up the organizational ladder, making the decision to protect him from the Rule 5 draft with a spot on the 40-man roster a relatively easy one for San Francisco. Law, who complements a heavy, sinking fastball with a potential plus curveball and a slider, has also proven plenty capable in high-leverage situations, saving 27 games in the minors the last two seasons. It's well within the realm of possibility that he could work himself into the setup mix late in 2015.
