Profile: Salas spent 2016 with the Angels and Mets. He struck out 21.8% of batters while walking 6.5%, and his ERA, FIP, and xFIP were all within 4% of league average. That's probably a good way to describe Salas, as a league average relief pitcher. While he garnered six saves in 2016, that was the result of injuries to Huston Street and Cameron Bedrosian. Now with the Mets, Salas is unlikely to find himself in a similar situation in 2017, where the two options ahead of him for saves both get injured. He could be an option for holds, and is worth monitoring in that regard. Consider him like you would any vanilla relief option on the fringes of rosterable. (Joe Douglas)

The Quick Opinion: Salas is a serviceable relief pitcher on an MLB 40-man but not nearly as serviceable on fantasy teams. He can likely be ignored in all but extremely deep leagues.
