2018 Fantasy Baseball Outlook

Although he had the best strikeout (9.1 K/9) and walk (2.1 BB/9) rates of his career in 2017, Petricka's inability to keep the ball in the park (2.10 HR/9) steered him to the highest ERA he's posted a...

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

It was only a couple of years ago that Petricka was closing out games for the White Sox, although that seems like a distant memory. The right-hander slotted into the bullpen as a middle reliever to start 2016, but things went downhill after just nine games, as he was forced to miss the remainder of the season after undergoing hip surgery in June. Petricka still holds some decent numbers in his past, such as only allowing five home runs between 2014 and 2015, although he also displayed an inability to get left-handed hitters out during that span. The 28-year-old should be ready to go for spring training and will be in the mix for a bullpen spot, although his days of pitching in high-leverage situations are probably over unless something drastically changes with his arsenal.

2016

Petricka emerged as the White Sox’s closer in 2014, but he found himself lost in a middle relief role in 2015 after the club overhauled the back end of its bullpen. His velocity pretty much unchanged from a year ago in the mid-90s, but a lower strikeout rate in front of a poor defense spelled doom for his ERA and WHIP. He should occupy a middle relief role once again in 2016.

2015

Petricka was one of the team's top setup men for the season's first few months, and he took over the closer role in late June. The right-hander relies primarily on a sinking fastball that results in a ton of groundballs, but the rest of his pitches (changeup and slider) are generally just OK. His 67 appearances may have worn on him toward the end of the season, as he had a .351 BAA and 5.79 ERA over the final two months of the season before leaving his last start with arm soreness. He should enter the season in good position to retain a late-inning role in front of new closer David Robertson, but is not quite a lock until we get through spring training.

2014

Petricka has found new life in the White Sox's system as a reliever. He had been a once-promising starter in the organization's lower levels a few years ago, but his path to the majors became clearer when he became a reliever in 2013. His lack of control was less of an issue in shorter bursts, and he used a mid-90s fastball and plus changeup to post a 1.81 minor league ERA en route to a 16-appearance audition in Chicago. His 134 ERA+ over his 19.1 MLB innings should be good enough to put him in the discussion for a setup role out of camp.

2012

Petricka barreled through three minor league organizations in 2011, and he finished his first full season as a professional at High-A Winston-Salem. His K:BB tumbled to an average 46:26 in 67.2 High-A innings after an impressive 48:13 in 41.2 frames at Low-A Kannapolis, but he still fed his defense a high level of groundballs. Scouts like his mid-90s fastball, but his secondary pitches still need a bit of work. He likely profiles as a mid-rotation starter or bullpen guy, depending on the organization's needs come 2013 or 2014.
