Profile: The 2016 Rule 5 pickup not only survived the season with the Cardinals, but was a positive asset out of their bullpen, netting nearly a win in value over 67.2 innings. The bulk of his work was in the sixth and seventh innings and he's likely remain in the front of the bullpen again in 2017. He doesn't have the strikeout rate to offer fantasy upside as a middle reliever, nor does he have the raw stuff to suggest more strikeouts are coming.
