Profile: Straily doesn't have plus velocity, and according to walk rate, it doesn’t look like he has great command. He does have elite movement separation between his rising fastball and his dropping change (best in the game!), however, and his slider is also decent. He's started throwing some two-seamers and will front-door or back-door any pitches he's got. He's wilyand going to make the most of his skillset. But is that effort going to be better next year? It will be tough for him to repeat his surface results with this exact same stuff. Maybe more training with Driveline Baseball will help him push his fastball velocity closer to average, in which case he might be able get more first-pitch strikes and more swings on pitches outside of the zone. That would mean more strikeouts -- if that happened, he could maybe repeat his year despite what the projections say. Either way, people basing their acquisitions on projections won't be lining up to get him, so he should be cheap in your fantasy league. (Eno Sarris)

The Quick Opinion: Straily gets whiffs and has three legit pitches by movement, but his velocity hurts him. Be cautious but interested.
