Stat Review
How does Carlos Estevez compare to other relievers?
This section compares his stats with all relief pitcher seasons from the previous three seasons (minimum 30 innings)*. The bar represents the player's percentile rank. For example, if the bar is halfway across, then the player falls into the 50th percentile for that stat and it would be considered average.

* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against 2019 data (min 30 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2022
2021
2020
2017
Estevez ranked 20th among 2021 qualified relievers with a 1.69 gmLI, which also made him Colorado's highest-leverage reliever last season. He didn't open the year in the closer role, but went 11-for-17 in save chances while posting a 4.38 ERA and 1.49 WHIP over 61.2 innings (64 appearances). He also recorded three wins and a career-high 15 holds while posting the second-best walk rate (7.8%) of his career. Estevez brings upper-90s heat with his fastball, but his changeup and slider have been really ineffective the past two seasons. If he improves those secondary offerings, or gets out of Colorado -- Estevez owns a career 3.51 ERA away from Coors Field compared to a 6.04 ERA otherwise -- he could improve his stock considerably. Estevez remains in the mix to close for Colorado, but Alex Colome is likely the favorite for the job after signing in March.
Estevez was dominant to begin the season as he allowed just one run over 9.1 innings during the season. However, he struggled mightily over the second half of the campaign as he finished the year with a career-worst 7.50 ERA and 1.75 WHIP over 24 innings. The Rockies' closer role was up for grabs for most of the season, and Estevez had several chances to work out of the ninth inning in 2020. However, he converted on just one of his four save chances and failed to secure the job. Many of his struggles came via the long ball, as his 2.25 HR/9 ranked ninth-worst among qualified relievers last season, and he had a 44.2% hard-hit rate that was seventh-worst among qualified relievers. Estevez could have the chance to compete for the closing gig again in 2021 if he can turn things around during the offseason, but his past results suggest that the Rockies could be better off turning toward other options.
Estevez spent the entire 2019 season in the big leagues and had his best season so far, finishing with a 3.75 ERA in 72 innings. That's not a particularly impressive number in a vacuum, but given Coors Field and the juiced ball, it was good for an ERA- of 74. It was also good for second-best on the team among pitchers who threw at least 11 innings, trailing only Scott Oberg. His performance was backed up by a solid 26.3% strikeout rate and 7.5% walk rate. The Rockies are likely to have some uncertainty in the back of their bullpen again this season, so Estevez's 2019 numbers make him a decent candidate for save speculation during draft season. That speculation should probably be limited to drafts in leagues that are quite deep, however, given that Estevez has only had one good season and still calls Coors Field home.
Coming into 2016, Estevez hadn't seen any action above the Double-A level. By the end of the season, however, he was one of the most heavily-used relievers in the Rockies' bullpen. The right-hander made his first appearance in the majors in April, and although his ERA was nothing spectacular, he came out of the gate striking out over a batter per inning. This success led manager Walt Weiss to designate him as the Rockies' closer after Jake McGee got injured, a role he retained into early August. The wheels began to come off, though, as the 23-year-old stumbled to the finish line to conclude the season with a 5.24 ERA and 1.42 WHIP. However, Estevez showed plenty of promise this season, so if he can maintain his high K/9 (9.7 in 2016) and stay sharp over the entire course of the season, he could work his way back into a fairly prominent position in the bullpen hierarchy.
