Avoids arbitration with Yankees
PNew York Yankees
November 18, 2022
Trivino agreed to a one-year, $4.1 million contract with the Yankees on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
A closer during his time with Oakland, Trivino logged only one save after coming over to New York at the trade deadline, but his numbers were much improved overall following the move. Trivino turned in a 1.66 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 22:10 K:BB in 25 appearances for the Yankees and will likely be an important part of the bridge to the ninth inning next season.

Stat Review
How does Lou Trivino 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.
  • K/BB
    Strikeout to walk ratio.
  • K/9
    Average strikeouts per nine innings.
  • BB/9
    Average walks per nine innings.
  • HR/9
    Average home runs allowed per nine innings.
  • Fastball
    Average fastball velocity.
  • ERA
    Earned run average. The average earned runs allowed per nine innings.
  • WHIP
    Walks plus hits per inning pitched.
  • BABIP
    Batting average on balls in play. Measures how many balls in play against a pitcher go for hits.
  • GB/FB
    Groundball to flyball ratio. The higher the number, the more likely a pitcher is to induce groundballs.
  • Left On Base
    The percentage of base runners that a pitcher strands on base over the course of a season.
  • Exit Velocity
    The speed of the baseball as it comes off the bat, immediately after a batter makes contact.
  • Barrels/BBE
    The percentage of batted ball events resulting in a Barrel. A Barrel is a batted ball with similar exit velocity and launch angle to past ones that led to a minimum .500 batting average and 1.500 slugging percentage.
  • Spin Rate
    Spin Rate is the rate of spin on a baseball after it is released. It is measured in revolutions per minute (rpm).
  • Balls Hit 95+ MPH
    The percentage of batted balls hit that met or exceeded the 95 MPH threshold.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2022
2021
2020
2019
Trivino's team-leading 22 saves in 2021 was also a career-high mark. He began the campaign by splitting closer duties with Jake Diekman, but he ultimately took over the role until he struggled in three consecutive outings in late August. Though those problems may have been caused by a back injury, Trivino's potential to serve as a consistent closer is worth calling into question. He lacks the typical swing-and-miss stuff of a closer (10.2 swinging strike rate; 21.6 K% in 2021) and also struggles with free passes (11 BB%). As a result, the primary factor that led to Trivino's success was his ability to induce groundballs at a 48% clip, which in turn helped him surrender only 0.6 HR/9. Given that the Athletics declined Diekman's team option and Sergio Romo also hit free agency, Trivino may begin the season as closer in Oakland. However, he should not be drafted among the elite relievers and fantasy managers should not rely on him for a full season of saves.
Trivino is one of those relievers with many interesting characteristics, but few results to show for it. He throws in the mid-to-upper 90s with his fastball, can touch 100 with it and matches that up with an effective cutter and curveball. Yet, 2020 saw him earn zero wins, zero saves and even allow a home run to Jeff Mathis. Trivino did significantly improve his strikeout rate despite losing two miles per hour off his fastball, throwing fewer cutters and using more fastballs. There was no new pitch here to credit a strikeout surge to as much as a significant change to his pitch utilization as well as some tweaks to his pitching mechanics (notably he shortened his arm action). He is more effective when attacking righties, but does not have the type of platoon splits that would limit him from high-leverage work should opportunities present themselves in 2021.
After bursting onto the scene with a 2.92 ERA and eight relief wins in 2018, Trivino got off to a great start to 2019. His season went downhill in a hurry and the point of decline can be tied closely to a thumb injury; Trivino posted a 6.27 ERA, 1.80 WHIP and 5.7 BB/9 following his return in May. He also battled an oblique injury and a cracked rib late in the year, with the latter cutting short his season. Despite Trivino's struggles, manager Bob Melvin continued to lean on the right-hander in high leverage for a good portion of the campaign. Trivino finished with the third-highest Leverage Index on the team, behind Blake Treinen and Liam Hendriks. The skills remain intriguing. Trivino throws 97 mph and even in a down year, his Barrel% and average exit velocity both ranked within the top 5% of the league. With better health, Trivino should bounce back and could even find his way into saves.
A relative unknown entering 2018, Trivino got the call up in mid-April and went on to become one of manager Bob Melvin's most trusted relievers at the back end of the Oakland bullpen. He did seem to run out of gas late in the year -- Trivino said it was just a lack of execution -- but his overall body of work was quite impressive. Working mostly four-seamer (97.6 mph)/cutter (92.4 mph), Trivino struck batters out at a 27.4% clip and held opponents to a sub-.200 batting average. He tied for 16th in the American League in appearances, racking up eight wins and four saves along the way, and finished with a 14.6% swinging-strike rate, which was a top-25 mark among qualified relievers. The estimators all suggest he overachieved by a decent margin, and regular save chances are highly unlikely with Blake Treinen, Fernando Rodney and Joakim Soria all ahead of him in the pecking order, but Trivino is on the radar as a ratios-eating staff filler.
