2023 Fantasy Outlook
Effross doesn't throw hard - he averages just 90.8 mph on his fastball - but averaged a ridiculous 17.3 inches of break on the pitch. His sinker (34% pitch usage) still needs work, but the side-armer's fastball movement, combined with an effective slider (40%) and much-improved changeup (15%), yielded excellent results. Effross pitched a career-high 56.2 innings between the Cubs and Yankees, with a 2.54 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 62:15 K:BB ratio. Unfortunately, a strained shoulder sidelined him for just over a month late in the season, then he missed the playoffs after undergoing season-ending Tommy John surgery. Effross is also expected to miss the 2023 season, but this emerging reliever most certainly will factor into the Yankees' late-innings plans in 2024 and beyond. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a one-year contract with the Cubs in March of 2022. Traded to the Yankees in August of 2022.
Needs Tommy John surgery
PNew York Yankees
Elbow
October 11, 2022
Effross requires Tommy John surgery, which will presumably keep him out for all of next season, Jack Curry of YES Network reports.
ANALYSIS
Effross was one of the Yankees' key trade deadline acquisitions and went on to save three games while posting a 2.13 ERA for his new team. He was poised to be one of the team's key high-leverage relievers this postseason, and his absence leaves an injury-plagued unit with one more important spot to fill.

Stat Review
How does Scott Effross 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
