2018

2017

If guts and guile were fantasy categories, Brault might be a first-round pick. Unfortunately, the lefty's fastball (91 mph average) and breaking pitches are average at best -- he lacks anything remotely resembling a strikeout pitch. Opponents hit .313 (in 33.1 innings) against the 24-year-old rookie. Brault tore through the low minors in 2015, but the lack of a put-away pitch bodes poorly for his chances at sustained success as a starter. Of course, 2016 represented his first taste of big league action, so it's possible he improves. The Pirates lack starting pitching depth and it appears Brault is in line to take regular turns in the rotation, but most in the fantasy realm will want to take a wait-and-see approach.
