Outlook: Johnson's story took a couple of turns in 2016. The left-hander had rocketed through the system, even making a start for Boston in 2015, before an elbow injury ended that season. Seemingly cast as a potential depth starter for 2016, Johnson suffered a toe injury during training camp and was on a pitch count early on for Triple-A Pawtucket. Noted for his pinpoint control, Johnson was wild to start the season, giving up 22 walks in 33 innings before getting placed on the temporary inactive list in May while he sought treatment for anxiety, a condition that had been building since 2015. The organization and his teammates were supportive as Johnson worked through the anxiety issues, and he eventually returned to Pawtucket in late July. He was better following his return, but it was still a lost year for him. He'll return to start for Pawtucket, but the team is placing no expectations on him. After this offseason's upgrades to the rotation, Johnson now looks like simply a depth piece.

Outlook: Just a season removed from making 10 starts in his first taste of the major league level, Gonzalez took a major step backward in 2016. The 2013 first-round draft pick was unable to claim the Rangers final rotation spot out of spring training, and even upon his relegation to Triple-A Round Rock, he struggled significantly to the tune of a 4.70 ERA and 1.43 WHIP. This poor showing limited him to just three starts in the big leagues, where he averaged just over three innings per start while walking more batters than he struck out. Gonzalez was once a prized prospect in the Rangers system, although his window to make good on that promise is closing. The 24-year-old should open 2017 at Triple-A, where he will have to earn to right to be considered should a rotation spot open up in Arlington.

Outlook: Reed entered 2016 as one of Cincinnati's top pitching prospects before making his major league debut in June. The 23-year-old disappointed in 10 starts during his rookie season, posting a 7.36 ERA and 6.06 FIP over 47.2 innings of work, as his vaunted slider was blasted by major league hitters. Although Reed's K/9 and BB/9 rates stayed fairly similar to his 2016 numbers with Triple-A Louisville, he gave up home runs on a much more frequent basis in Cincinnati. His 2.27 HR/9 that was more than triple his mark at Triple-A (0.74). Additionally, his WHIP saw a concerning spike at the major league level. Reed still has the potential to develop into a serviceable mid-rotation starter, but 2016 took off some of the shine. He will compete for a rotation spot in spring training.

Outlook: After missing 2016 due to Tommy John surgery, Gonzales is unlikely to be back pitching in games until a month or two into the 2017 season. He will almost certainly spend time at Triple-A Memphis once healthy due to the fact that he is yet to impress in the majors and seemed to take a step back in the minors before he went under the knife. Over 14 starts with Memphis in 2015 (when he most recently pitched), Gonzales really struggled to retire the opposition, as batters hit .317 with him on the mound. He was much better at Triple-A in 2014, and it is possible his elbow was already an issue during his struggles in 2015. His stuff profiles better at the back of a big league rotation than in the bullpen, so he should continue to be developed as a starter, but given the Cardinals' rotation depth it is unclear when he will get a legitimate look in that role as long as he remains in this organization.

Outlook: Beeler opened the season on the 15-day DL after experiencing shoulder inflammation during spring training, and his only appearances in 2016 came as a reliever at Triple-A Iowa, where an elbow injury eventually paved the way to a place on the 60-day DL, and subsequently ended his campaign. The Cubs outrighted Beeler off their 40-man roster in November, and it's expected that he'll remain in the organization to compete for a roster spot during spring training. Most likely, he'll be limited to long-relief or spot-start duty if the Cubs retain his services and elect to call upon him at any point in 2017.

Outlook: Alcantara was once widely regarded as Oakland's top pitching prospect, but he underwent Tommy John surgery in 2014, which obviously slowed his progress. Though he had a phenomenal eight-game stint at Triple-A Nashville last year (six earned runs, three walks), Alcantara did little to impress over his first five major league starts. He has a little more growing to do -- after all, he's logged only 68 innings above Double-A. He may need to change things to earn fantasy trust: Though his fastball touches the mid- to high-90s, his approach works more toward contact. He hasn't punched out more than 7.5 batters per nine at any level. Of course, the real optimism lies in his control (1.9 BB/9 in minors). He may compete for one of the back-end rotation spots in spring training.

Outlook: Jenkins, a former top-100 prospect, began his 2016 campaign with Triple-A Gwinnett, where he posted a 2.91 ERA over 65 innings. Two months into the season, he was shifted from the starting rotation to the bullpen in an effort to speed his path to the big leagues. All went according to plan and the hard-throwing righty was promoted to Atlanta in mid-June. The 24-year-old was granted eight starts, but did not take advantage of his opportunities. After a month-long demotion to Triple-A, he finished the year in the Braves’ bullpen. Atlanta had apparently seen enough, swapping declining assets with Texas in an offseason trade that sent Luke Jackson to the Braves. The Rangers then designated Jenkins for assignment and he was claimed by the Reds, before he was later claimed off waivers by the Padres. It is unclear what the Padres intend to do with him in the short term, but Jenkins profiles as a low-to-mid-leverage MLB reliever long term.
