Outlook: Soto was traded to the Cubs in April of 2016 and spent almost the entire season stationed in Triple-A Iowa. After multiple designations for assignment, he was most recently claimed off waivers by the White Sox. The 25-year-old does not have a lot of major league experience, but teams continue to be intrigued by his ability to generate swing-and-misses in the minors. Soto posted a solid 10.10 K/9 in 49 innings of work in 2016. On the other hand, his command was a cause for concern. Soto's control issues resulted in him issuing 5.69 BB/9, which is much higher than teams would like and helps explain his disappointing 5.14 ERA in 2016. As long as Soto continues to miss bats, he will continue to have opportunities to prove himself in the minors, but in order to stick in the major leagues, he will need to find a way to locate his pitches better in the strike zone.

Outlook: Once one of the top prospects in the Rockies' system, Butler just hasn't been able to find any success at the major league level. The 25-year-old shuttled between Triple-A and the big leagues all season. Although he posted career-best marks in both K/9 (6.6) and BB/9 (3.0), those numbers were still underwhelming, and when paired with his career-worst 1.8 HR/9, it made for an awful year. The right-hander is only 25 years old, so there's still some room for development, but the window is closing for him. With top prospects Jeff Hoffman and German Marquez pushing for major league roster spots, Butler needs to get things together as soon as possible, or else the Rockies may end up giving him a permanent assignment to the bullpen.

Outlook: Plutko was a minor league workhorse in the Indians' organization in 2016. The 25-year-old right-hander tossed 71.2 innings and 90.0 innings in Double-A and Triple-A respectively. After making 15 starts for Triple-A Columbus and earning a 3.97 ERA and 4.03 FIP, Plutko was called up to the Indians in late September, where he appeared in only two regular season games and pitched 3.2 innings. Plutko relies much more on pinpoint control as opposed to high velocity, which allows his fastball to still be an effective pitch despite sitting in the low 90's. Additionally, Plutko has been effective at consistently throwing strikes, which he demonstrated by his 130:46 K:BB in 2016. While he appears to be major-league ready and was developed as a starter, Plutko's best chance to make the Indians 2017 25-man roster will be via a spot in the bullpen. In order to do so, he will need to continue to demonstrate a high level of command.

Outlook: Houser was just one of the many former Astros plucked away to Milwaukee by new(ish) Brewers general manager David Stearns, who worked under Jeff Luhnow in Houston's front office. Despite a 5.25 ERA, Houser had solid peripherals in his first 13 starts of 2016 down at Double-A, thanks to an acceptable 56:22 K:BB over 70.1 innings. Unfortunately his season was ended by Tommy John surgery in July, which will keep him out for most, if not all of 2017. He turns 24 in February, so Houser will have time to get his career back on track. However, this is a very untimely development for Houser, whose performance in the 2015 Arizona Fall League had many believing he could be a part of the Brewers future plans sooner rather than later. His likely future role is a back-of-the-rotation arm or middle reliever, so given the elbow surgery, he can be ignored in almost all dynasty leagues.

Outlook: With Chris Davis occupying first base for the foreseeable future and first base prospect Trey Mancini waiting in the wings, the Orioles decided to move Walker to the outfield in order to open up an easier path to the big leagues. Walker again began his season with Triple-A Norfolk, as he did in 2014 and 2015, as well. His development has seemed to level off over the past couple of seasons at Triple-A. His walk rate has decreased in each of the last two seasons and though his average and slugging percentage both ticked up in 2016, his overall wRC+ remained stagnant at 116. Walker will be 26 years old by the time Opening Day rolls around, and it's looking increasingly likely that his potential MLB impact may be limited. He is on the 40-man roster and may see the field for the Orioles this year, but his long-term fantasy outlook is bleak.
