RotoWire News: Casilla made his first appearance of the spring in Sunday's 9-8 Cactus League victory over the Cubs, surrendering two earned runs on two hits, a walk and a wild pitch over two-thirds of an inning. He also recorded a strikeout. (3/13/2017)

Profile: Casilla has evolved from a groundball pitcher who limited hard contact to a power pitcher. The transformation started a couple of years ago, with his strikeout rate going from 6.9 K/9 up to 10.1. At the same time, his ground ball rate dropped from 56% to 48%. The change occurred when he stopped throwing his sinker as often and began using his curve more. With either approach, he got the same results… well, almost. With the groundballs dropping, more balls left the yard, as seen by his career-high 1.2 home runs per nine innings last season. The A’s signed Casilla last offseason to help back up Ryan Madson and Sean Doolittle. I could see a reasonable opportunity for saves if Doolittle ends up on the disabled list, like he always does, and Madson struggling. Casilla should be owned in almost all medium-to-deep leagues in which teams hunt for saves. (Jeff Zimmerman)

The Quick Opinion: Casilla could be a source of saves if the dominoes fall right for him in Oakland.
