Profile: Berrios couldn't have had a worse major league debut if he tried. One of Minnesota's most alluring pitching prospects in years, Berrios seemed set to take the league by storm after an impressive Triple-A stint in 2015 put the finishing touches on a great season. Perhaps another month or so at Triple-A would be all he needed before a call-up. As if on cue, he reeled off a 1.06 ERA, 0.94 WHIP, and 20 strikeouts in his first 17 innings of the season and made his major league debut on April 27th. It was horrible. He allowed five runs in four innings and it turned out to be a harbinger of things to come in his three stints with the Twins (8.02 ERA, 1.87 WHIP in 58.3 innings). If there is an encouraging sign in such a wretched season it's that he continued to excel in Triple-A every time he was sent back out, resulting in a 2.51 ERA, 0.99 WHIP, and 125 strikeouts in his 111.1 innings there. Pitch tipping was an issue with the Twins and shows the vast discrepancy between the leagues, because he likely had some of the same tics in the minors, but they couldn't touch him. He focused on improving those issues this offseason and now hopes to deliver a post-hype season as the fantasy market has completely forgotten him. (Paul Sporer)

The Quick Opinion: The majors are hard enough when you're not telegraphing your pitches and Berrios saw just how hard it is when you are tipping your intentions. A hideous 14-start debut has tanked his price in the market and made him an intriguing, low-cost upside play. The talent is still there.
