2024 Fantasy Outlook
After spending 10 seasons in Japan, Fujinami's first season stateside was a mixed bag. His career-long control issues surfaced early on as the 6-foot-6 right-hander struggled to command his triple-digit fastball, walking 24 over his first 30 innings to go along with disastrous ratios (12.00 ERA, 1.89 WHIP). Even the poor-performing Athletics were forced to evaluate Fujinami's role and shifted him to relief before subsequently trading him to Baltimore. He fared slightly better working in shorter stints, but still performed poorly overall, finishing the season with one of the worst walk rates (12.6%) in the league. Fujinami didn't strike many batters out either, as his 23.2% strikeout percentage was slightly below league average. Now a free-agent, look for the 29-year-old to land a short-term deal with a team who can capitalize on his velocity and potentially fix his control issues. Read Past Outlooks
