2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Buchter emerged as a steady late-inning arm for the Padres last season, but he was sent down to Triple-A El Paso in August after his effectiveness waned with the rapid reduction of his spin rate over a small stretch of outings. He finished the season on a high note, including nine innings in September with an .071 batting average against, and the Padres never revealed a specific injury as the cause for his brief struggles. Overall, he led all San Diego relievers in strikeout rate (31.6 percent) and batting average against (.159), and the biggest red flag in his skill set is an elevated walk rate (12.6 percent). Buchter works with a 92-93 mph fastball, while mixing in occasional sliders and cutters, and his extreme flyball tendencies profile well in more cavernous ballparks, though it should be noted that he had a better ERA on the road (2.17) than he did at home (3.44) in 2016. Most likely, he'll serve as part of the bridge to the ninth inning in 2017.

2016

Buchter spent the 2015 season in the Dodgers and Cubs organizations, working a 1.78 ERA with a 10.7 K/9 rate over 43 total appearances with Triple-A Oklahoma City and Triple-A Iowa. The Padres' severe lack of left-handed pitchers in the bullpen could give Buchter an inside track at making the Opening Day roster.
