No. 2 Brad Keller

Brad Keller, who has recently returned from the Injured list, has only played in 9 games in 2023. In 9 games, he has pitched 43.1 Innings with a 4.36 ERA, but in the period, he walked 40 and only struck out 31. He's mostly a ground-ball pitcher and struggled in 2023 with walking too many batters, but all signs point to a bounce-back season. In his first 2 seasons in the majors, he was a solid innings eater, then showed he could dominate hitters and could return to form with another team, but it might be hard to acquire him as several teams could be interested in him.
