2023 Fantasy Outlook
Gutierrez's rookie season in 2021 finished on a sour note and that carried over into 2022, to say the least. The right-hander was demoted to the bullpen after putting up a 7.71 ERA over his first eight starts and he lasted just two relief outings before going down with an elbow injury which eventually required Tommy John surgery in late July. Gutierrez could potentially make it back late this season, particularly if the Reds opt to build him back up as a reliever. He's certainly not going to have any fantasy value in 2023, though.

Gutierrez (elbow) underwent Tommy John surgery Wednesday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
ANALYSIS
Gutierrez officially underwent surgery to correct the first-degree UCL strain he suffered in June and will now set his sights on potentially returning late next season. The right-hander will finish his 2022 campaign with a 7.61 ERA, 1.91 WHIP and 29 strikeouts over 36.2 innings in 10 appearances, including eight starts.

Stat Review
How does Vladimir Gutierrez compare to other starting pitchers?
This section compares his stats with all starting pitcher seasons from the previous three seasons (minimum 120 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 120 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.

Todd's Takes: Arsenals and Angles
154 days ago
Todd Zola analyzes pitchers with limited arsenals before tackling the most interesting fantasy fall-out from Wednesday's schedule.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
2022
2017
2016
Gutierrez made his big-league debut last season and started 22 games for the Reds, and he finished with a 4.74 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 88:46 K:BB across 114 innings. The 26-year-old has a solid four-pitch mix but had an unexceptional 17.7 percent strikeout rate and 9.3 percent walk rate. Gutierrez will begin 2022 in Cincinnati's starting rotation, but given his low strikeout numbers and the fact the team is opting for a rebuild, he's unlikely to be a consistent fantasy asset outside of deeper formats.
The Reds signed the 21-year-old Cuban righty for $4.75 million in late August, which amounts to a $9.5 million commitment from the team, as they exceeded their international bonus pool and incurred a 100 percent tax. At 6-foot-3, 175 pounds, he has a more projectable frame than some of the other top pitchers from last year's international class. Gutierrez can touch 97 mph with his fastball, but typically sits in the low-90s while also bringing a potentially plus curveball to the table. He has flashed an average changeup, and further development of that pitch will be critical for him to make it as a starter. Given his age and repertoire, he should be able to handle a full season league in 2017, likely getting assigned to the Midwest League or Florida State League. Based on the recent track record of Cuban pitchers that come stateside, it is fair to assign more bullpen risk to Gutierrez than a typical pitching prospect with his physical tools.
Gutierrez was perhaps the top pitching prospect in Cuba, winning the Serie Nacional's rookie of the year in the 2014-15 season. In August, Baseball America ranked him as the No. 12 player in Cuba. At age 19, Gutierrez could command a large contract from a MLB team, as he's a 6-foot-3 right-hander with a plus curveball and a projectable frame that should allow him to increase the velocity on his fastball (currently 88-93 mph). Gutierrez also mixes in a changeup and he projects as a starter in the big leagues long-term. However, it may be well into 2016 before he signs as he'll need to secure residency in another country and be declared a free agent in order to sign with a big league club.
