Colin Poche

28-Year-Old PitcherRP
2022 Fantasy Outlook
The 28-year-old hasn't pitched in a competitive setting since the 2019 postseason after undergoing the second Tommy John surgery of his career in July 2020. When he was last healthy during his rookie season in the majors, Poche was one of the top strikeout artists among relievers, whiffing 34.8 percent of the batters he faced. He'll likely need to work his way back at Triple-A for much of the season. Read Past Outlooks
RANKSFrom Preseason
#601
ADP
$Signed a contract with the Diamondbacks in June of 2016. Traded to the Rays in May of 2018.
Snags first save
PTampa Bay Rays
May 26, 2022
Poche allowed an unearned run on two hits and a walk while striking out one in the ninth inning to earn the save Wednesday against the Marlins.
ANALYSIS
Poche was handed a two-run lead and was ultimately forced to get out of a bases-loaded jam to end the game. Neither of the hits he surrendered left the infield, and the defense committed two errors behind him. Nevertheless, Poche managed to record his first save of the season, which is particularly notable because Andrew Kittredge (back) is sidelined and Brooks Raley was not used in the game. Poche missed the last two seasons due to Tommy John surgery but has returned to maintain a 1.29 ERA, 0.79 WHIP and 12:3 K:BB across 14 innings.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2021
2020
2019
Considered a lock to make the Rays' 2020 roster when spring training was suspended, Poche never ended up taking the hill for Tampa Bay. It was announced shortly before Opening Day that Poche had a torn UCL and would require Tommy John surgery. He had the procedure at the end of July, so while a late-season return in 2021 should not be expected, it's not out of the question.
After dazzling in the minors in 2018, recording a 0.82 ERA between the Diamondbacks' and Rays' farm systems, Poche made his major-league debut in 2019. The 26-year-old experienced some growing pains as he amassed a 4.70 ERA with nine home runs allowed in 51.2 innings pitched in the majors, but he managed a strikeout rate of 34.8% and picked up two saves as the Rays relied on late-game heroics throughout the season. Many of Poche's woes came on the road, where he had an 8.06 ERA with a 1.57 WHIP, along with a 13.5% walk rate. Emilio Pagan seemed to cement his role as the closer last season and Nick Anderson may be next in line, but Poche could be a valuable asset in deep fantasy leagues due to his high strikeout rate, and his value could rise if he can lock down more consistent command and control.
Poche dominated the minors for the second straight season in 2018, recording an incredible 0.82 ERA in 66 innings at the Double-A and Triple-A levels in the Diamondbacks' and Rays' organizations. That followed a campaign in which he posted a 1.25 ERA in 50.1 innings at Low-A and High-A. The success came on the back of a 45.6% strikeout rate, a surprising number given that his fastball sits just 89-92 mph and given that he hasn't had all that much prospect hype. He's also given up just two homers over the last two seasons combined. Poche's fast rise and incredible numbers suggest that it won't be long before he reaches the big leagues, and he should be more than a lefty specialist once he gets there. Once he lands in the major-league bullpen, Poche could rise up the ranks quickly thanks to his high strikeout totals.
