2023 Fantasy Outlook
Melancon sandwiched four months of struggles between a strong start and finish to his 2022 season. The 37-year-old opened his first season with the D'Backs as their closer, but nearly lost the job by mid-May and lost sole ninth-inning responsibilities by early August. However, the veteran was still afforded save chances in a fluid closer committee and led Arizona with 18 saves. Melancon posted a respectable 3.00 ERA and 1.08 WHIP over the final month, but finished 2022 with 10 losses and his worst ratios since 2017. With declining velocity (91.2 mph average fastball) and skills (14.2% K% that was in the bottom 3rd percentile), he isn't worth rostering unless he's getting the majority of save chances, which is far from guaranteed.
