ANALYSIS
Lakins joins his third team of the offseason, having opened it with the Red Sox and having been traded to the Cubs for cash earlier in January. Lakins threw 23.1 innings in his debut for Boston last season, posting a 3.86 ERA but a modest 17.7 percent strike rate. His path to playing time in Baltimore will be considerably easier than it was in Boston or Chicago.

2016 Fantasy Outlook
Lakins, 21, was a sixth-round draft pick in 2015 out The Ohio State University. He's got a repeatable delivery with a three-pitch mix -- a 91-93 mph fastball, a 75-76 mph curveball, and an 83-86 mph change up -- all of which are potential plus offerings. The lean left-hander has some room to add weight, which could improve his velocity a few ticks. His greatest need at this point is to improve his command and control of the fastball. At this point, he'll be on a starter's track. He threw one inning at the Gulf Coast League and one inning at Short-Season Lowell in 2015. We expect him to remain in extended spring training with a placement to Lowell or Low-A Greenville.
