Outlook: Sadler pitched well as a starter for Triple-A Indianapolis in 2014, but was unable to leverage that success into much at the big-league level. The right-hander compiled an 11-4 record with a 3.03 ERA and 1.19 WHIP in 124.2 frames for Indy. He had a tough time getting anyone out in the majors, allowing 12 hits, five walks and nine earned runs in 10.1 innings. Sadler is more of a possible swingman, making the occasional spot start while being used primarily out of the bullpen. While he is unlikely to get a crack at Pittsburgh's rotation in April, Sadler could make a midseason appearance when injuries strike.

Outlook: Oh Ricky, Ricky, Ricky. Romero is an extreme, but also instructive example of why owners should almost never give pitchers contracts in fantasy baseball. Romero showed improvements in each of his first three seasons, lowering his ERA and WHIP and raising his K:BB ratio each year. And then it all fell apart in his fourth season (2013). He made another 32 starts, but every key metric regressed sharply. He lost all feel and command for his stuff and wound up with a 5.77 ERA. Last year was even worse as he lasted just seven innings plus another 38 in the minors before knee surgery cut his wretched season short. The knee has been a problem since 2012 and definitely played a role in the initial fall, but can he recapture his form once healed? He is still due $7.5 million in 2015, which bodes well for him at least getting a try if he is healthy. The fantasy community shouldn’t be as willing to give Romero a shot without seeing something on the field first.

3 Year Average 0 0 0 5.3 4 10.13 2.44
Outlook: Thompson made his MLB debut in 2014 with five relief appearances in July and August. The former 44th-round pick relies primarily on a fastball and sinker, and he has struck out nearly 10 batters per nine in 79 relief innings over two seasons at the Triple-A level. The A's claimed him off waivers in November, and Thompson should get the opportunity to compete for a bullpen spot in camp.

3 Year Average 0 0 0 5.3 2 8.44 1.69
Outlook: Not too many 20th-round draft picks make it to the major leagues, but Riefenhauser did so late in 2014. He was impressive at Triple-A Durham, posting a 1.40 ERA over 39 outings and striking out nearly a batter an inning. The lefty seems destined for a role as a LOOGY in the team’s bullpen as he has held lefties to a .135 batting average throughout his minor league career, while righties have hit nearly double that. If Jeff Beliveau’s injury delays his start to the season, Riefenhauser’s odds of making the team will be more favorable. Even if he does break camp with the big club, there will be little reason to roster him in any format.

2015 Projections 2 6 0 61.0 53 6.03 1.59
3 Year Average 2 2 0 24.0 20 7.50 1.63
Outlook: Hudson appeared to be starting off a strong career with the Diamondbacks after posting a 3.01 ERA in his first 44 starts with the clubs. He got off to a horrific start in 2012 and eventually underwent not one, but two Tommy John surgeries costing him essentially all of 2012, 2013, and 2014. The right-hander threw 45 innings in 2012 before getting hurt and then just 2.2 innings of relief ball in September of last year, marking his comeback from the pair of surgeries. He will be used exclusively as a reliever in 2015, which could be pretty interesting. He will have to play his way into any real fantasy value, but he was hitting 95-96 mph out of the bullpen and could be a big strikeout force who eventually puts pressure on Addison Reed in the closer role, especially if Reed struggles with the inconsistency that plagued him last year.
