Finally, this tour of possible keeper sleepers concludes out on the West Coast, and almost just in time for... err, Opening Day for the KBO? There's still no clear path forward for MLB to get its own season underway, just a lot of rumored plans and ways to try and make playing baseball as safe as possible for everyone concerned.
Now, let's take a look at some other possible breakouts in the NL West:
Shallow: Kevin Ginkel
One of the most popular closers in waiting this draft season, Ginkel not only has a dominant fastball-slider combo and a weird arthritic-old-man delivery that gives him extra extension beyond his long-limbed 6-4 frame, but he's on a team that has never seemed willing to commit to Archie Bradley as its ninth-inning man. Across all levels, Ginkel fanned 91 batters in 59.2 innings last year with a 1.66 ERA, and there's little reason to think big-league batters are going to figure him out any time soon. A compacted schedule that forces teams into more creative deployment of their pitching staffs could also open up more opportunities for someone like Ginkel to prove they can get the job done at the end of games.
Deep: Josh Rojas
