2022 Fantasy Outlook
Giolito caught some helium last draft season, and unfortunately, the end result was a little deflating for those that paid top dollar to acquire his services. It was far from a bad season, but Giolito took nine losses, served up 27 homers in 178.2 innings and lost nearly seven percentage points off his strikeout rate (27.9 K%). He spent time on the injured list late in the season with a hamstring injury and finished with more walks (five) than strikeouts (four) in his one postseason appearance. His swinging-strike rate remained elite at 15.3% (fifth in MLB), so his strikeout rate seems likely to tick back up in 2022. Giolito will continue to give up the occasional rocket when he leaves a changeup hanging or a fastball center-cut, but he's been one of the top arms in the American League since he reverted back to his old mechanics after the 2018 season. With his supporting cast, and in that division, Giolito should still be considered a fantasy ace. Read Past Outlooks
