2019 Fantasy Outlook
Britton owns a 65% groundball rate for his career, which is special in its own right. In recent seasons, it has not fallen below 73%, but that is where fun Britton ends. Recently, his strikeout rate has fallen to the average range while his walk rate has become worse than average. A 12% K-BB rate is in the danger zone, which is why Britton has blown five of his 27 save opportunities over the past two seasons. The only thing that keeps his ERA in check despite the risks is that he is damn near impossible to hit out of the park because nobody gets good elevation on his pitches. He has allowed all of four home runs to the last 330 batters he has faced while pitching in the American League East. Britton returns to the Yankees and will likely open the year as the team's top left-handed setup man, a role he's best suited for at this stage. Read Past Outlooks
