Devenski, 27, is entering his third season as a Major Leaguer and is coming off an All-Star year. In 2017, he went 8-5 with a 2.68 ERA (24ER/80.2IP) and 100 strikeouts in 62 relief appearances. Among American League relievers, Devenski ranked tied for second in strikeouts (100), tied for sixth in holds (24), tied for 11th in WHIP (0.94) and 12th in opponent average (.174).
