2020 Fantasy Outlook
Petit showed no signs of slowing down in his age-34 season, making a career-high 80 relief appearances -- tied for second most in the majors -- and finishing with career-best marks in ERA (2.71) and WHIP (0.81) across 83 innings. While he didn't miss a ton of bats (7.7 K/9), Petit was able to find success thanks to his elite command (1.1 BB/9) and ability to limit hard contact (34.8% hard-hit rate). The veteran did benefit from a high strand rate (81.4%) and low BABIP (.220), which is reflected in his FIP (3.59) and xFIP (4.48), though he's now out-pitched his peripherals in each of the past two seasons. Petit should see similar usage in 2020 after the A's picked up his option; while he'll benefit from pitching close to half of his games in a pitcher-friendly home park, his upside remains limited outside of leagues that count holds -- he led the team with 29 -- as long as Liam Hendriks remains closer.
