* 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.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
After spending the first few months as the closer for Double-A Arkansas, Festa got the call up to Seattle in July and rode the shuttle for a while before settling in for good in September. In total, he made eight appearances for the big-league team, including one start as an opener (covering one inning). The strikeout punch that Festa showed on the farm was completely absent, with his K-rate falling from 32.3% to just 10% with the jump in levels. He relied more so on limiting walks (5%) and hard contact (18.2%). Festa doesn't throw particularly hard and his swinging-strike rate was just 6.9% in his first foray into the majors. Chances are, Festa will break camp on the major-league roster after general manager Jerry Dipoto cleaned house this winter, but Festa has not yet flashed the kind of swing-and-miss dominance against upper-level hitters to suggest he has a realistic chance to close in 2019.
