2020 Fantasy Outlook
Estevez spent the entire 2019 season in the big leagues and had his best season so far, finishing with a 3.75 ERA in 72 innings. That's not a particularly impressive number in a vacuum, but given Coors Field and the juiced ball, it was good for an ERA- of 74. It was also good for second-best on the team among pitchers who threw at least 11 innings, trailing only Scott Oberg. His performance was backed up by a solid 26.3% strikeout rate and 7.5% walk rate. The Rockies are likely to have some uncertainty in the back of their bullpen again this season, so Estevez's 2019 numbers make him a decent candidate for save speculation during draft season. That speculation should probably be limited to drafts in leagues that are quite deep, however, given that Estevez has only had one good season and still calls Coors Field home. Read Past Outlooks

Struggles in spring training
PColorado Rockies
March 29, 2020
Estevez allowed five runs on seven hits and had eight strikeouts and zero walks over five innings prior to the suspension of spring training.
ANALYSIS
The 27-year-old had somewhat of a breakout campaign for the Rockies in 2019, posting a 3.75 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 81:23 K:BB with 11 holds in 71 appearances. According to Thomas Harding of MLB.com, Estevez and Jairo Diaz are expected to play prominent bullpen roles for Colorado in front of Scott Oberg and closer Wade Davis this season.

Stat Review
How does Carlos Estevez 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.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Coming into 2016, Estevez hadn't seen any action above the Double-A level. By the end of the season, however, he was one of the most heavily-used relievers in the Rockies' bullpen. The right-hander made his first appearance in the majors in April, and although his ERA was nothing spectacular, he came out of the gate striking out over a batter per inning. This success led manager Walt Weiss to designate him as the Rockies' closer after Jake McGee got injured, a role he retained into early August. The wheels began to come off, though, as the 23-year-old stumbled to the finish line to conclude the season with a 5.24 ERA and 1.42 WHIP. However, Estevez showed plenty of promise this season, so if he can maintain his high K/9 (9.7 in 2016) and stay sharp over the entire course of the season, he could work his way back into a fairly prominent position in the bullpen hierarchy.
