2019 Fantasy Outlook
He lost some of his strikeout punch from 2017, but Steckenrider still stood out in the Marlins' bullpen, leaping to the top of the hierarchy by the end of the season. Though the club has other closing candidates for 2019, the righty made a case for keeping the job, converting four saves after Kyle Barraclough was removed as lead stopper in August. Steckenrider improved his walk rate by nearly one free pass per nine, which is a mark in his favor over Tayron Guerrero. Steckenrider must find a way to consistently retire lefty batters (.340 wOBA, 1.89 K/BB against them last year) if he's to solidify his spot in the ninth inning. This bullpen could play out much like it did in 2018, remaining in flux for a large portion of the season as trades and performance dictate changes. Paying for a full season of saves from Steckenrider is ill advised. Read Past Outlooks

Elbow
November 1, 2019
Steckenrider (elbow) was activated from the 60-day injured list Friday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Steckenrider isn't necessarily healthy, but players can't remain on the injured list over the offseason. He's expected to be ready for the start of spring training after having his elbow scoped in early August, though whether he meets that target won't become clear until later in the offseason.

Stat Review
How does Drew Steckenrider compare to other relievers?
This section compares his stats with all relief pitcher seasons from the previous three seasons (minimum 30 innings)*. The bar represents the player's percentile rank. For example, if the bar is halfway across, then the player falls into the 50th percentile for that stat and it would be considered average.

* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against 2019 data (min 30 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Kyle Barraclough is the more familiar name to baseball fans, but Steckenrider may be the best arm in the Marlins' bullpen. Like Barraclough, Steckenrider struggled with walks last season (4.7 BB/9), but he missed bats at a far greater clip (35.8 percent strikeout rate) while working mostly fastball-slider. Further, a very good 68.2 percent first-pitch strike rate and a track record of better control at the upper levels of the minors portend improvement with Steckenrider's walk rate in future seasons. Steckenrider trimmed his ERA in each of the final four months of the 2017 campaign, down to 1.50 in September, as his K/9 rate steadily ticked up over that span (to 16.5). Most of the Marlins' veteran bullpen arms are expected to be traded this offseason, leaving Steckenrider in prime position to take on a higher-leverage role. He could even take on the ninth if he outperforms Barraclough in spring training.
