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.

Trivino (rib) played catch Saturday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
ANALYSIS
The hard-throwing reliever is presumed out until spring training, yet the fact he was able to at least do some light tossing is an encouraging step. Trivino struggled through a disappointing 2019 but should have plenty of time to regain a clean bill of health over the next several months.

Stat Review
How does Lou Trivino compare to other relievers?
This section compares his stats with all relief pitcher seasons from the previous three seasons (minimum 30 innings)*. The bar represents the player's percentile rank. For example, if the bar is halfway across, then the player falls into the 50th percentile for that stat and it would be considered average.

* 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.
  • K/BB
    Strikeout to walk ratio.
  • K/9
    Average strikeouts per nine innings.
  • BB/9
