|Tanner Roark has had quite the journey since being a 25th-round pick (Rangers) in 2008. Unlike top prospects, Roark had to pitch his way into relevancy. He earned some attention early in his career when he won 11 games in back-to-back seasons in the minors in 2009 and 2010, but he went 9-9 the following season and then 6-17 in 2012 at Triple-A. Roark started last season at Syracuse bouncing between the rotation and bullpen before he got his first call to the majors after going 9-3 with a 3.15 ERA and .217 opponents' batting average in 33 appearances (11 starts). Roark initially filled a role as a long reliever for Washington, going 4-0 with one hold and a 1.19 ERA in nine August relief appearances. The Nationals then decided to give Roark a shot in the rotation and he didn't disappoint, going 3-1 with a 1.74 ERA and 0.90 WHIP in five September starts. Now, Roark finds himself in the mix for the final spot in the Nationals' rotation, competing with the likes of Ross Detwiler and Taylor Jordan. If Roark emerges with a rotation job, then he deserves late-round consideration in mixed leagues.
