RotoWire News: Coleman (biceps tendinitis) threw a scoreless inning Tuesday in his spring debut against the Dodgers. He still has a chance to win a spot in the Reds' bullpen, MLB.com's Mark Sheldon reports. (3/15/2017)

Profile: The Dodgers snatched up Coleman after the Royals parted ways with him. For $750,000, it was a no-risk gamble for LA. Through the first 2 1/2 months of the season, Coleman had a nice 2.95 ERA and was striking out almost a batter per inning. The rest of his season was not nearly as nice. He had a 7.06 ERA and, while he kept his strikeout rate up, he became far too hittable. For basically a right-handed specialist, that wasn't going to be good for his long-term status with the club. He didn't make the postseason roster and was non-tendered by the Dodgers. He was given a minor-league contract by the Reds and, in all likelihood, will make their bullpen out of spring training (have you seen their projected 'pen? Yikes). He might snake a save opportunity or two in Cincinnati, but he isn't going to be a full-time closer by any means. (Dustin Nosler)

The Quick Opinion: As a ROOGY, Coleman doesn't have a ton of fantasy value. Sure, he'll be effective against them, but late in the game, a left-handed pinch-hitter renders his advantage useless. Still, he's a guy who is useful in a bullpen, as long as he's utilized correctly. He doesn't have a lot of fantasy value. Never has, likely never will.
