7/19: Duplantier reinstated from IL

A shoulder injury that kept him out for his entire sophomore season at Rice hurt Duplantier's stock leading into the 2016 Draft despite a healthy junior campaign. Those concerns weren't assuaged when he threw just one inning in his pro debut due to elbow soreness, but he took a huge step toward erasing doubts with a dominant and healthy first full season that saw him lead the Minors in ERA (1.39) while pitching across two levels and attending the Futures Game. He was shelved for an extended period in 2018 with right biceps tendinitis that limited him to just 67 innings in Double-A, but made up for lost time with an impressive performance in the Arizona Fall League. Duplantier made his big league debut early in the 2019 season, tossing three scoreless innings out of the bullpen to record a save.

Duplantier's fastball usually sits in the 93-95 mph range, but he can reach back for more when needed. He throws it with sink and run, making him effective both at getting ground-ball outs and missing bats. His slider is at least above average and represents his best secondary offering, thrown with power, at 85-87 mph, and late biting action that nets him whiffs and is especially lethal against righties. He also throws an effective curveball in the low 80s and has feel for a mid-80s changeup, though he'll need to refine the latter to neutralize left-handed hitters. He's around the strike zone with his entire four-pitch mix.

The strong and athletic Duplantier has helped remake his delivery with remarkable success, but concerns likely will persist on account of his arm action and low three-quarters slot. If he can stay healthy, Duplantier's combination of athleticism, stuff and command point to a ceiling of a mid-rotation starter.
