Jose Berrios (RHP, MIN) – 2016 Fantasy Baseball Sleeper
Follow The MLB Reports On Twitter Follow @mlbreports
Jose Berrios has shown that he possesses potential ace-like pitch-ability in the minor leagues. In 2015, he threw 166.1 innings with a 2.87 ERA and 175 strikeouts. He proved that he is ready for the big leagues as he dominated Triple-A through 75.2 innings with a 2.62 ERA, 83 strikeouts, and only 14 walks.
While everyone loves to see an impressive strikeout rate (9.9 per nine innings in Triple-A), his walk rate is what could make him elite. He only walked 1.7 batters in Triple-A last year, which is an elite rate for starting pitchers.
Many baseball fans believe Berrios is more talented than most of the pitchers in the current rotation, but it looks as if the Twins will hold off on promoting him until later in 2016. The Twins will do this to limit his innings and get an extra year of team control in the future.
