Profile: It sure seems like a long time ago that Hutchison was considered a top prospect, doesn't it? The 26-year-old is a bit of a forgotten commodity at this point, after posting a 5.57 earned run average in 2015 and spending most of last season in Triple-A. The Pirates acquired Hutchison in August of last season, and he's on their 40-man roster at present. However, for Hutchison to have fantasy value, he's going to need a rotation spot, and it's looking like he's slotting in somewhere in the No. 6-8 starter range. In other words, he'll need guys ahead of him to implode or get hurt, and even then, Hutchison's performance is far from predictable. (Scott Strandberg)

The Quick Opinion: Far crazier things have happened than a 26-year-old ex-prospect putting it all together, but I don't see any reason to go out on a limb and say that will happen with Hutchison in 2017.
