2018

2017

Graveman, part of the ragtag crew that was brought into the Oakland organization via the Josh Donaldson deal two years ago, finally began to bring some value in 2016, chewing 186 innings of league-average run prevention. The sinkerballer was supposed to keep the ball in the yard, yet in his first 306.1 innings of big league ball Graveman has coughed up 1.1 HR/9 (roughly league average). The strikeout rate was already an issue coming into last season, but it decreased further and his 13.7 percent frequency just doesn't cut it in today's strikeout-laden environment. Oddly, this happened in conjunction with an uptick of velocity on his 60-percent frequency sinker, shooting up from 91.9 mph in 2015 to 93.5 mph last season. He also limited the walks, but the run-prevention numbers remained largely the same despite the improvement in baseline skills, and in the end, what you see is what you get with Graveman: a pitcher who crosses his fingers for a league-average ERA and lacks the upside to appeal to those in standard leagues.

2016

Graveman was one of the young pitchers acquired by the A's from Toronto in the blockbuster Josh Donaldson trade. After earning a job in the rotation to start the year with an exceptional spring, Graveman had a seven-run meltdown in his first Oakland start, but then settled in nicely and sported a 3.16 ERA over his first 13 starts. He tired down the stretch and stumbled in a big way his last eight starts, allowing 25 runs and seven homers in 38.2 innings. Graveman does not profile as a high strikeout guy, as his fastball sits just under 91 mph and he only has a 6.1 K/9 in the majors. He developed a cutter in 2014 that contributed to his rapid rise through the Jays organization, and the A's hope his ability to limit walks and flyballs in the first half of the season will re-surface with an offseason of rest. The A's rotation is wide open heading into 2016, and Graveman could certainly win one of the five slots in spring training.

2015

Graveman began his 2014 campaign at Low-A Lansing, but progressed through three more minor league levels to earn a callup from the Jays during the second half of the season. A big part of his fast move through the system last season has been attributed to Graveman's discovery of a cutter. He started until he reached the big leagues, showing good control (career 5.3 BB%) and inducing an extremely high groundball rate (58.3%) during his ascent through the Toronto system. The A's acquired him as part of the Josh Donaldson blockbuster with Toronto in November. While Graveman initially appeared to be ticketed for bullpen work with the A's, he pitched his way into the back of the rotation after allowing one earned run over 21.2 innings in Cactus League play.
