Chicago White Sox
2024 Fantasy Outlook
Nastrini didn't have the control to project as a long-term starter with the Dodgers, but after he was moved to the White Sox as part of the return for Lance Lynn and Joe Kelly, he should get plenty of opportunities to stick as a starter in the coming years. A 6-foot-3 righty with a true four-pitch mix headed by a mid-90s fastball, Nastrini has had a walk rate over 10 percent at every full-season stop except his four-start run with Chicago's Double-A affiliate after the trade (7.4 percent). His 12.7 percent walk rate in four starts at Triple-A isn't as bad as it looks, when factoring in the automated balls and strikes system. Nastrini has struck out 308 batters in 231.2 innings over the past two seasons, and he only needs to develop fringe-average command to make it as a high-strikeout, high-WHIP starter who is useful in most formats but never coveted due to his volatile ratios and presumably poor team context with the White Sox.

Nastrini was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Nastrini has struggled in his six starts in the majors this season, posting an 0-5 record with an 8.39 ERA, 1.99 WHIP and 19:25 K:BB over 24.2 innings. The White Sox called up lefty reliever Sammy Peralta from Charlotte in a corresponding move, but it's not immediately clear whom the big club may turn to as a replacement in the rotation for Nastrini.

* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against 2019 data (min 120 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Could debut in 2024
PChicago White Sox  AAA
October 11, 2023
Nastrini could make his MLB debut with the White Sox in 2024, James Fegan of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
ANALYSIS
The 23-year-old was acquired from the Dodgers at the trade deadline in the Lance Lynn trade, and the organization change could fast track his path to the majors. Nastrini spent most of the campaign at the Double-A level but finished the year at Triple-A, and he posted a 4.08 ERA and 10.9 K/9 in 25 starts between the two levels. He seems likely to open 2024 back at Triple-A since he's appeared in just five games there, but a strong showing in spring training could give him a chance of making the Opening Day rotation.

2023 Fantasy Outlook
When rotation depth is never a major issue, as is seemingly the case with the Dodgers, it makes sense to acquire guys with excellent stuff and questionable command and hope that they improve their strike-throwing enough to start. Nastrini is such a pitcher, as he had a 32:7 K:BB in 14 innings after getting drafted in 2021 and a 169:55 K:BB in 116.2 innings this past season. A 6-foot-3, 215-pound righty who turns 23 in February, Nastrini has never had a strikeout rate below 34.9% or a walk rate below 10.7%. His mid-90s fastball is a plus pitch, and his secondaries all get plenty of whiffs, the issue is just landing them for strikes enough to keep hitters honest. Opposing batters have hit .176 against Nastrini in the pros, so he doesn't need to have an excellent walk rate, he just needs to be in the 9-to-10 percent range. Given the Dodgers' depth and the fact that he doesn't need to be added to the 40-man roster until after the 2024 season, Nastrini should get another full year in the minors to work on his command and control.
