Profile: Now with the Braves, Roe is on his fourth team over the past four seasons. He has been wildly inconsistent, and placing a value on him is tough. Here is what we do know about the 30-year-old. He strikes out a decent number of batters with a career 9.7 K's per nine innings. He walks quite a few as well, however, with a career 4.4 walks per nine. His ERA has hovered around 4.00, which is unusable as a closer. Even with the subpar performance, he could be in line for saves in a weak Braves bullpen after some late-season changes. With Atlanta, he began throwing his slider 60% of the time, which lowered his FIP down to 1.75. Even though he still had a 3.60 ERA, some real signs of improvement began to stick. The main improvement is a career-high strikeout rate (11.7 K/9) and low walk rate (3.2 BB/9). Those metrics are similar to those of Cody Allen, Hector Neris, and Tyler Thornburg. Don’t be surprised if Roe gets some saves, but he’ll likely morph back into his useless self. (Jeff Zimmerman)

The Quick Opinion: After being traded to Atlanta, Roe made some changes which could potentially put him in line for saves.
