$Signed a contract with the Brewers in June of 2015 that includes a $1.11 million signing bonus. Traded to the Pirates in July of 2019.
Protected from Rule 5 draft
PPittsburgh Pirates
November 20, 2019
ANALYSIS
This protects him from the Rule 5 draft. Ponce had a 3.97 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 53:11 K:BB in 47.2 innings (including the Arizona Fall League) after getting traded from the Brewers to the Pirates. He proved before the trade that he probably has what it takes to make it to the majors as a reliever, but the Pirates want to develop him as a starter for now.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
Ponce's season debut was delayed by a forearm injury, which limited him to just 17 starts in 2016. The first half went extremely well: He owned a 2.50 ERA with 41 strikeouts and just a .592 OPS allowed through his first 36 innings. But Ponce didn't have enough in the tank to finish the season strong, as he allowed at least four runs in four of his final eight starts and watched his ERA inflate to 5.25. The dominant first half gives reason to believe in the talent that earned Ponce a second-round selection in 2015, but the combination of early-season injury and late-season ineffectiveness have stalled Ponce's prospect rise to a long-term watch candidate in dynasty leagues.
The Brewers selected Ponce 55th overall in the 2015 draft, and the 21-year old spent most of the year pitching for Low-A Wisconsin. He had a successful season, posting a 2.29 ERA and 1.10 WHIP in nine starts with a 40:9 K:BB ratio. Ponce's 6-foot-6, 235-pound frame allows him to throw his fastball in the upper 90s and overpower batters. He still is probably a year or two away from the big leagues and likely will spend the 2016 season developing in the minors.
