2016 Player Review: Dalier Hinojosa

Editor's Note: This is the eighth in a series of looks at the men who suited up for the 2016 Philadelphia Phillies. Daniel Stumpf was the last player profiled. 

Cuban defector Dalier Hinojosa sometimes seems like one of Matt Klentak's more shrewd pickups.
Since being claimed off waivers on July 15, 2015, the righthander has given up 6.3 hits, .5 home runs, 3.5 walks and struck out 7.7 batters per nine innings.
The problem is, he's only pitched in 28 games for the Phillies. The 30-year-old has spent much of his time in AAA or injured. He was hurt early in 2016 when a comebacker clipped his hand.
But he's got Big League talent. His fastball still sits in the low- to mid-90s and his slider comes in between 84-86.
Pete Mackanin considered him as a possible closer for the Phillies last year, before the injury.
Hinojosa was left unprotected before the Rule 5 draft, but he's still in the organization. I don't think it's out of the realm of possibility that Hinojosa returns to the Big Leagues with the Phillies in 2017.

Grade: D
Will we see him in 2017: It's likely

Until he proves otherwise, Hinojosa should be in the Phillies bullpen. He has produced at the top level and should remain there unless he falters. The Phillies are idiots for using other trash instead of him.

Side note- are you sure he's still a member of the organization?

GM-Carson said...

Phillies signed veteran catcher Bryan Holaday to minor league pact. Solid depth signing.

I'm fairly certain he's still part of the organization. But I had to look pretty hard. He was listed as a guy team's might take a flier on during the Rule 5 draft.
