2017 Outlook: In retrospect, the White Sox's call to cast pitch framing aside when making their 2015-16 catching decisions was most perplexing, at least as it pertains to Rodon. He thrived with Tyler Flowers framing his pitches in 2015, his mid-90s fastball and slider a lethal combination that hinted at a possible 2016 breakthrough, but Rodon could never find chemistry with either Alex Avila or Dioner Navarro early in the year and only seemed to find his groove once Omar Narvaez took over as his personal catcher for his final 12 starts. The smart move might be to discard many of Rodon's early-2016 returns, which weren't representative of his true talent, especially since he showed significant improvement with his changeup during the second half, most of that working with Narvaez. Rodon still has the ability to be an eventual top-20 fantasy starter, though he's not quite over the hurdle yet and is more of a fifth option drafted to your team.
2017 Outlook: Jones quietly emerged as one of the game's most talented setup men in 2016, his 5.5 percent walk rate his lowest at any professional stop in his career, and his strikeout rate swelling to an astonishing 32.5 percent after the All-Star break thanks to his filthy slider. He'll begin 2017 as David Robertson's primary setup man, making him one of the stronger speculative saves picks in the game considering the trade rumors surrounding Robertson. Even in a setup capacity, however, Jones should provide enough in ERA, WHIP and K's to be a worthwhile mixed-league asset.
