Keller's time in the majors last year was . . . sub-optimal, to say the least. Other than his elite strikeout rate, pretty much nothing went right for the youngster in his brief time with the Pirates. But when your FIP is FOUR runs lower than your ERA, chances are pretty good you're due for a rebound. Keller has an excellent fastball with an above-average slider and a decent curveball, more than enough to succeed in getting major league hitters out. If he can manage to limit his awful first innings of games with more consistency, he could provide plenty of value.

Mitch Keller yields three runs in Monday's loss to Toronto

Mitch Keller allowed three runs on three hits and one walk while striking out two in 2 1/3 innings in Monday's 4-0 loss to the Blue Jays.

Fantasy Impact

Keller yielded a two-run shot to Danny Jansen and saw his ERA rise to 7.50 across three appearances this spring. He expects to be a part of the Pirates rotation, owning a 1-5 record, 7.13 ERA, 1.83 WHIP and 65:16 K:BB across 11 starts last season. Keller has potential to be a late-round value pick, but will need to have better outings if he plans to stick in Pittsburgh's rotation.
