2019 Fantasy Outlook
A relative unknown entering 2018, Trivino got the call up in mid-April and went on to become one of manager Bob Melvin's most trusted relievers at the back end of the Oakland bullpen. He did seem to run out of gas late in the year -- Trivino said it was just a lack of execution -- but his overall body of work was quite impressive. Working mostly four-seamer (97.6 mph)/cutter (92.4 mph), Trivino struck batters out at a 27.4% clip and held opponents to a sub-.200 batting average. He tied for 16th in the American League in appearances, racking up eight wins and four saves along the way, and finished with a 14.6% swinging-strike rate, which was a top-25 mark among qualified relievers. The estimators all suggest he overachieved by a decent margin, and regular save chances are highly unlikely with Blake Treinen, Fernando Rodney and Joakim Soria all ahead of him in the pecking order, but Trivino is on the radar as a ratios-eating staff filler.

Pair of stumbles in recent outings
POakland Athletics
May 16, 2019
Trivino has been charged with two blown saves and allowed four earned runs over 3.2 innings in his last three appearances.
ANALYSIS
The normally dominant right-hander had yielded just two earned runs across his first 15 trips to the mound heading into an appearance against the Indians last Friday. Trivino surrendered an earned run on two hits and a walk in that outing, and three days later, he was touched up by the Mariners for three more on two hits and two walks over an inning. Trivino does have eight holds on the season and offers fantasy owners plenty in the way of strikeouts (9.2 K/9), but the pair of recent stumbles has bumped his ERA up from 1.13 to 2.75.

* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against this season's data (min 20 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.
