2019 Fantasy Outlook

$Signed a one-year, minor-league contract with the Diamondbacks in February of 2019.
Back on mound in Cactus League
PArizona Diamondbacks  AA
March 4, 2019
Kohn (biceps) has thrown a pair of scoreless innings so far this spring, striking out two and not allowing a single baserunner.
ANALYSIS
Kohen is back on the mound after missing the entirety of 2018 with a biceps injury. He's only thrown 13 total innings over the last three seasons, with shoulder issues causing major problems as well. If healthy, he could theoretically help the Diamondbacks, as he owns a 3.52 ERA in 115 career big-league innings, but a 32-year-old coming off years of significant injury problems has to be considered a long shot at best.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2014
2012
2011
Kohn began the 2013 season at Triple-A Salt Lake after a rough spring training, but was recalled by the Angels mid-April and managed to stick with the big club from that point on. In terms of basic run prevention, Kohn had a solid season, posting an ERA of 3.74 in 53 innings pitched, but his peripherals are a bit more troubling. Kohn posted a 4.8 BB/9 last season to go along with a 54.4% flyball rate, suggesting that his ERA may rise if more of those flyballs begin turning into home runs. Kohn has a live arm, however, and has shown an ability to strike hitters out (8.9 K/9 last season), which should put him in the running to stick with the Halos on Opening Day.
Kohn has struck out an impressive 268 batters in 183.1 minor league innings, all out of the bullpen. He threw the ball well for the Angels in 2010, but he did not pitch for the team after July last season after giving up nine walks and six home runs in his first 14 appearances. Although Kohn’s strikeout rate could make him a late-inning reliever down the road, he’ll have to do a better job limiting walks – and keeping the ball in the park – to maintain a regular role in the Angels bullpen.
Kohn took the express train to Anaheim, reaching the majors just two seasons after being taken in the 13th round. The key to Kohn's success? How about a 13.6 K/9IP in 135 minor league innings. Kohn still struggles with walks, so it would not be a total shock to see him open in Triple-A just to get some extra work in. Still, expect the Angels to find a spot in their bullpen for this hard-throwing right-hander at some point this season.
