Settles at $1.5 million
PLos Angeles Dodgers
January 13, 2023
Almonte signed a one-year, $1.5 million contract with the Dodgers on Friday to avoid arbitration, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Despite missing roughly two months of the season with an elbow injury, Almonte still put together an outstanding 2022 campaign, allowing just four earned runs over 35.1 frames. Of course, numbers as good as his will be nearly impossible to replicate in 2023, but if he can stay close to the level he was at last year, he may establish himself as one of the premier pieces of the Dodgers' bullpen.

Stat Review
How does Yency Almonte 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.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2021
2017
Almonte struggled in 2019 with a 5.56 ERA, but the right-hander turned things around in 2020. He posted a 2.93 ERA, along with a 4.18 xFIP and 3.74 SIERA, all of which greatly improved from the year before. Almonte was much better at limiting meaningful contact, as he had a better groundball rate in 2020 (56.3%) compared to 2019 (32.1%). He also had a hard-hit rate of 37.0% and an above-average 3.9% barrel rate. Almonte's average fastball velocity dipped to 94.8 mph in 2020, and he became more reliant on his off-speed pitches. Even with the changes in his pitch selection, he saw a slight increase to a 20.4 K%, and his BB% improved from 8.9% in 2019 to 5.3% in 2020. He was used in some late-game situations, converting on one of his three save chances while recording three holds. Almonte could be used as a setup man in 2021, but he's unlikely to be a significant contender for the closer's role.
Almonte has been a popular trade piece early in his career as he's bounced from the Angels to the White Sox and finally to the Rockies all within his first five professional seasons. The young righty features a four-pitch repertoire with his fastball and slider being his most effective offerings. His fastball typically sits around 93-95 mph, but he can reach back for a little more. Almonte spent the majority of his 2016 campaign with High-A Modesto before being promoted to Double-A New Britain. In 138.1 innings with Modesto, the 22-year-old posted a 3.71 ERA with a 23 percent strikeout rate and 6.7 percent walk rate. The 2012 17th round pick safely projects as a back-end starter or late-inning reliever, but would improve his outlook if he were able to deploy a consistent third pitch.
