Profile: After a few years as an unremarkable reliever, in 2015 Carter Capps took a giant leap forward -- quite literally, as anyone who has seen his unorthodox hop-step delivery can attest. Capps led all relievers with 16.8 strikeouts per nine innings, and his 1.16 ERA paired well with his 1.10 FIP and his absurd 0.87 SIERA. Unfortunately, Carter Capps tore his UCL last spring and underwent Tommy John, ruling him out for the 2016 season. Now with the Padres (as part of the controversial Colin Rea trade), Capps has an outside shot of being back for Opening Day. If he's fully healthy (a big "if", to be fair), he should have the opportunity to dominate in an iffy Padres bullpen, though save situations may be limited. Don't draft him as your closer, but keep an eye on his spring training and stash him if things look good. (Brice Russ)

The Quick Opinion: Everyone's favorite hopping reliever missed the 2016 season but hopes to be back early this year. He's not a lock to close for the Padres but should be a great sleeper pick if he does.
