2022 Fantasy Outlook
It's a shame we'll never know what would have happened if deGrom didn't deal with multiple injuries. Unfortunately, right lat inflammation, right flexor tendinitis, shoulder soreness and a partial UCL tear had other plans. In his 92 frames, deGrom recorded a 45.1 K% and 3.4 BB%, resulting in a 41.7 K-BB% mark which would have been the best in history for a qualified starting pitcher. Even though his ERA estimators were still well below 2.00, it's hard to imagine deGrom would have finished the year with a 1.08 mark. It is encouraging he could have returned down the stretch if the Mets were in playoff contention, but deGrom still turns 34 years old in June and he's coming off an injury-riddled campaign. The scary part is deGrom needs only 120 innings to be a top-10 starter. This one isn't about next-level analytics; it's a matter of confidence in his health and risk tolerance. Read Past Outlooks
