2023 Fantasy Outlook
With the success of Spencer Strider and others, the fastball/slider strikeout mavens who may have been pigeonholed as relievers a decade ago are now going to get a chance to start. Berroa's shortcomings (command, changeup) are the reason he is already on his third team (traded from the Giants to Mariners last season), but his dynasty value is at an all-time high due to his elite 2022 under-the-hood rates. His 15.3 BB% across High-A and Double-A is ugly, but everything else is exciting, including his called strike plus whiff, chase rate and zone whiff rate, per Prospects Live. Berroa is a groundball pitcher and opposing batters hit .158 against him, so he doesn't need pinpoint control to turn a lineup over multiple times. Every pitching prospect carries some level of risk, and outside the top handful, the risk gets pretty extreme. With this in mind, Berroa is a worthwhile flier in most dynasty formats, just in case he takes a step forward with his control. Read Past Outlooks

Shielded from Rule 5 draft

November 15, 2022
ANALYSIS
The move means Berroa won't be available in the Rule 5 draft. While Berroa is now a step closer to his big-league debut, it's unlikely he pushes for a spot on the Opening Day roster. He's yet to reach the Triple-A level, and while he struck out 35.6 percent of opposing batters in nine starts for Double-A Arkansas, he also walked 16.8 percent, more than double the major-league average.
