Profile: The Yankees starting rotation will likely open the 2017 season with a mix of injury-prone, unproven/inconsistent and aging hurlers, meaning the club will likely need to lean heavily on its pitching depth. That’s good news for Mitchell, who currently slots in as the club’s sixth starter. With no minor league options remaining, though, he’d have to pass through waivers to be sent to the minors so if he’s not in the starting rotation he’ll likely be headed to the bullpen as a long reliever. Mitchell, 25, has a strong fastball but isn’t a strikeout pitcher. He relies on control and his cutter to induce weak contact and generate a ton of ground ball outs; he does an excellent job of keeping the ball in the park. Mitchell doesn’t project to be a huge fantasy contributor in 2017 due to his lack of strikeouts and lack of guaranteed role -plus both Luis Cessa and Chad Green pose competition for starts. However, you just might catch lightning in a bottle for a short period of time with him during the coming year if he does happen to make his way into the starting rotation for the Yankees. (Marc Hulet)

The Quick Opinion: Mitchell doesn’t produce impact numbers but he has the stuff to be a reliable big league pitcher - either as a starter or reliever. His 2017 role will ultimately depend on the health and consistency of the pitchers ahead of him on the depth chart. A lack of minor league options, though, likely mean he’ll be pitching in the majors for someone (barring injury to himself).
