Expected Role: Lefty reliever
Daniel Schlereth somehow managed a sub-4 ERA with a 5.03 FIP last year, so his numbers are a bit of a mirage. The walks were high but the BABIP was low, and it saved him from a really horrible-looking season. His abnormally high strand rate helped in that department, too. The walks are manageable if he can get the K/9 back over 9 (which didn’t happen last year) and he can keep the ball in the park – and he keeps getting lefties out, which is his primary job anyway. Schlereth’s numbers are misleading, but he’s not a lost cause. With some improvement, he is capable of keeping the ERA below 4 a bit more legitimately.
