Profile: In many ways, Pedro Strop has always been a guy with closer's stuff. But there are certain drawbacks to his game that tend to take away from that. Nonetheless, 2016 saw him as a reliable arm out of the Chicago bullpen, when healthy. His strikeout numbers were the highest as a Cub, with 11.07 K/9 representing a slight increase for the fourth consecutive season. His walks, which tend to represent something of a hurdle for him, actually declined to 2.85 BB/9. His ground ball rate jumped up to 58.5%, something that's indicative of his increased splitter usage. His ERA and FIP teamed up for marks of 2.85 and 2.91, respectively. Each represented an improved figure from the previous season. That's a lot of favorable output, and his stuff is undeniable. From an ownership perspective, though, it's difficult to rationalize a spot for Strop, for two primary reasons. For one, his 47 games was his lowest appearance total of his professional career. So there are health questions until there aren't. Also working against Strop is the number of viable closing options in the Chicago bullpen, so it's difficult to imagine him in a role outside of middle relief or setup at any point. (Randy Holt)

The Quick Opinion: Pedro Strop continued to flash great stuff out of the bullpen, with 11.41 K/9 and 2.85 BB/9, along with low ERA and FIP numbers. At the same time, health issues in 2016 and a stacked back end of the Chicago bullpen makes him a tough sell as a fantasy option moving forward.
