2020 Fantasy Outlook
After battling a shoulder injury in July and August, Voth came on strong for the Nationals down the stretch, posting a 2.61 ERA and 0.92 WHIP in four September starts. His success was a pleasant surprise as Voth had dampened flashes of potential with bouts of inconsistency throughout his minor-league career. The right-hander is equipped with a four-pitch arsenal that includes a fastball that clocks in at 91-93 mph and a curveball that rates as above-average. He has demonstrated solid command throughout most of his professional career and carried that over to the big-leagues last season, finishing with a 7.5 BB%. Voth isn't likely to challenge for a strikeout crown, but he posted a healthy 25.3 K% last season and is certainly capable of averaging a strikeout per inning. Though his role next season is unclear, a strong spring training could help Voth emerge as Washington's fifth starter in 2020. Read Past Outlooks

No. 5 starter job still open
PWashington Nationals
March 26, 2020
Voth remains in the mix to win the No. 5 starter role when the regular season finally begins.
ANALYSIS
The right-hander put together a strong spring (1.29 ERA, 1.00 WHIP, 6:1 K:BB in seven innings) before MLB was put on pause, but neither Joe Ross (2.45 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, 3:4 K:BB in 7.1 IP) nor Erick Fedde (2.45 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, 7:4 K:BB in 7.1 IP) had taken themselves out of the running for the job either. Ross was considered the favorite coming into camp due to having more big-league experience, but Voth was arguably the most impressive of the trio. If the regular-season schedule ends up featuring fewer off days and more doubleheaders, however, all three pitchers could end up seeing significant workloads for the Nats, either in the rotation or in long relief.

Stat Review
How does Austin Voth compare to other starting pitchers?
This section compares his stats with all starting pitcher seasons from the previous three seasons (minimum 120 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 120 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2016
2015
After putting himself on the prospect radar in 2014, Voth solidified his status with a strong 2015 campaign at Double-A. Like Tanner Roark, Voth doesn't have the kind of stuff that makes scouts salivate, but he has good command of a fastball that can occasionally touch the mid-90s along with a plus curveball and developing change. His velocity can waver, though, putting him potentially on a path to the bullpen in the majors rather than the back of the rotation, especially given the competition rising through the Nationals system alongside him. Voth will begin the season at Triple-A and he's not yet on the 40-man roster, so he's a little less likely to get a crack at the majors in 2016 than you might expect, but injuries or underperformance could give him his first shot at the big leagues in the second half.
Drafted in the fifth round in 2013, Voth made a lot of scouts sit up and take notice with some truly outstanding numbers at Low-A and High-A last year, posting a combined 2.10 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 114:29 K:BB ratio in 107.1 innings between the two levels. The 22-year-old right-hander stumbled at Double-A, and he doesn't have an outstanding fastball, typically sitting in the low 90s while occasionally touching 96, but he already shows strong command and control and his power curve and changeup are both potentially plus pitches down the road. If he can build up his frame and generate more consistent velocity, he could solidify a spot as a potential future member of the Nationals' rotation just behind Lucas Giolito and A.J. Cole, but even if he doesn't, Tanner Roark is currently showing what can be done with an arsenal and skill set similar to Voth's. He's not a high-ceiling prospect, but he is an intriguing one.
