2018

2017

The Dodgers sent Cotton to Oakland to acquire Josh Reddick, and the right-hander found his way into the rotation about a month later. Though he sparkled in his first five major league starts and probably has the inside track at a rotation spot, some may overlook him because of the 7.1 K/9 during his time with Oakland and 4.31 ERA at Triple-A. The ugliness of his minor league surface stats masked the beauty of his 10.3 K/9 and 2.6 BB/9. Cotton's swinging-strike rate (a whopping 12.5 percent), an excellent get-ahead approach (66.1 first-strike rate) and diverse cache of pitches suggest he should've had better luck in the K/9 department. Those factors position him for a productive first full year, especially in his new pitcher-friendly environment, which will at least limit the dangers of his flyball-first approach in home starts. He's a low-cost sleeper yet possibly one of fantasy's best prospects for 2017.

2016

Cotton saw his prospect status soar after an excellent 2015 in which he saw time at four different levels, ultimately finishing with five relief appearances in Triple-A. His Triple-A debut was pretty good, with Cotton striking out the only six hitters he faced in two innings. Combined, Cotton posted a 2.45 ERA in 95.2 innings with an excellent 114:31 K:BB. That 10.7 K/9 likely propelled him at least close to the team's top 10 prospects list. Cotton stands just 5-foot-11 and was a 20th-round pick, but a unique delivery and excellent stuff have propelled him up the charts. Cotton features a fastball anywhere from 90-95 mph, an excellent curveball, and a changeup that is already talked about as well above average for his development. Cotton spent time in both the rotation and the bullpen after returning from a wrist injury in late May. His long-term future is yet to be decided, but he should make his major league debut in some capacity this season after opening up in Triple-A.
