Profile: 2016 was a disappointing year for Trevor Rosenthal. Expected to be one of the league's top closers at the start of the season, Rosenthal held on to his upper-90s fastball, but after a solid April, his command issues from 2014 returned with a vengeance. Rosenthal walked nearly 15% of the batters he faced (up from 8.7% in 2015), and when he did leave pitches in the strike zone (51.1% Zone%, up from 45.5%), batters teed off on them to the tune of a 35% hard-hit rate, a 12.5% HR/FB% (over twice as high as his 2015 mark) and an almost-astonishing .425 BABIP. Rosenthal was removed from the closer role in June and went on the DL in July, coming back for a few solid appearances at the end of the season. As of press time, Rosenthal's 2017 role was murky; he's being stretched out to compete for the final starter slot alongside Michael Wacha and others, but is more likely to set up for Seung-hwan Oh or take a long relief/swingman role. If he's bounced back from his 2016 issues, Rosenthal has plenty of upside, but his fantasy value will stay depressed until it's clear how he'll be used. He's a solid flier in deeper leagues, though, especially those that count holds. (Brice Russ)

The Quick Opinion: Rosenthal had a very bumpy 2016, but the talent's still there. The playing time may not be, though, and his 2017 fantasy value will depend in large part on whether he's a starter, setup man, or long reliever.
