Profile: Brad Brach began last year as the third or fourth option in the Orioles bullpen -- but quickly forced himself into fantasy discussion with a performance that was even better than his breakout 2015. Over the first half of 2016, Brach threw a 0.91 ERA in 49.1 IP, striking out 31% of his batters faced and walking 8% for a still-impressive 2.50 FIP. Brach earned his first-ever All-Star nod and, when Darren O'Day was sidelined with injury and ineffectiveness, snagged 24 holds (and 10 wins, to boot) as the fill-in setup man. Brach did flag a bit in the second half (3.94/3.62 ERA/FIP), and his walk rate is perhaps a bit higher than you'd like from a top-flight reliever. He'll also have to contend against O'Day, Mychal Givens and other worthy competitors for setup opportunities behind Zach Britton in a crowded Orioles pen. Nevertheless, Brach should pick up a respectable number of holds, and could have a crack at the closer's role were it to come open. Brach's someone to consider for your fantasy team once the top middle relievers are off the board -- especially if he locks down the #2 spot in spring training. (Brice Russ)

The Quick Opinion: Brach followed his strong 2015 with an even better 2016, performing ably as the Orioles setup man in Darren O'Day's absence. Brach will likely have to compete for opportunities in a strong O's bullpen, but should perform enough to merit fantasy consideration as a mid-tier middle reliever.
