2023 Fantasy Outlook
After being a logical candidate to see save chances based on his steady performance throughout 2022, Acevedo finally saw ninth-inning duties over the final weeks, recording Oakland's last four saves of the season. However, injuries to other A's late-inning relievers essentially forced manager Mark Kotsay's hand, as Acevedo became his most trusted option by default. No matter the circumstances, the 28-year-old still turned in the best season of his career. Acevedo had one of the best changeups in the league as measured by Statcast run value (-8) while posting a top-25 WHIP (0.99) among qualified relievers. His 80.2% in-zone contact percentage was solid and his 15.9% SwStr% suggests we could see his strikeout rate improve. That said, Acevedo is no sure bet to close in 2023 and is a better bet for only a handful of saves rather than double-digits. Read Past Outlooks

Charged with blown save
POakland Athletics
October 4, 2022
Acevedo allowed an unearned run on two hits over one inning to take a blown save in Tuesday's 2-1 extra-inning win over the Angels.
ANALYSIS
Acevedo gave up an RBI single to Matt Duffy in the ninth inning that tied the game at 1-1. This was Acevedo's first blown save since taking over the Athletics' closer job in mid-September. The 28-year-old owns a 3.33 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 58:17 K:BB through 67.2 innings this year while adding four saves, four blown saves and 21 holds through 70 appearances.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
The Yankees may have found a diamond in the rough in Acevedo, who had been brought along slowly until having a breakout season in 2016. Acevedo tormented hitters at Low-A using a combination of a blazing fastball, stellar changeup and emerging slider. The fastball is his best pitch, and he can hit triple digits on the radar gun. He was just as dominant after a jump in levels, notching a 3.22 ERA and 54:15 K:BB in 50.1 innings. The impeccable control is particularly noteworthy given Acevedo's 6-foot-7 stature. The development of his slider, which improved in 2016, will go a long ways toward determining his future role. Acevedo also spent three separate stints on the disabled list in 2016, so his health is worth monitoring. For now, Acevedo will remain in the starting rotation and likely return to High-A to start the 2017 season, with a quick promotion in the works if he gets off to a fast start once again.
Acevedo spent the majority of 2015 with Low-A Staten Island, posting very impressive numbers through 11 starts (1.69 ERA, 9.9 K/9). The 21-year-old relies heavily on his fastball — a pitch that has movement and can reach up to 100 mph, though his command is still a work in progress. The big righty leans on a slider and changeup as his secondary offerings, and both project as above-average pitches in time. Given his velocity and issues with command, Acevedo could eventually work out of the bullpen, but he's being developed as a starter for the time being. He should get a chance to start moving up the organizational ranks this year, but the majors are still at least a couple of years away.
