2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Armstrong flashed the same kind of dominant stuff in his brief time with the Indians (0.88 WHIP, 12.4 K/9 in eight innings) that was on display at Triple-A Columbus (49.2 innings, 37 hits, 80 strikeouts, 14.5 K/9, zero homers). The only issue with his Triple-A performance was a poor BB/9 rate (4.7) as he walked 26 batters in just over 49 innings, and that has been an ongoing concern throughout his professional career (4.5 BB/9 across five minor league seasons). The Indians are set at closer with Cody Allen on board, but Bryan Shaw was merely serviceable in a setup role, so there may be opportunities for more high-leverage work. First things first, Armstrong will need to cement his spot in the bullpen with a strong showing in spring training.
