2022 Fantasy Outlook
Sandoval began the season toiling for Triple-A Salt Lake but was called up before their season commenced. Initially, Sandoval was a swingman, but it wasn't long before he entered the rotation full time. His season ended prematurely in mid-August with a left lumbar stress reaction. Granted, it was only a 36.2 inning sample from the previous campaign, but Sandoval exhibited significant improvement, best exemplified by a 15.2% swinging strike mark supporting a 26% K%. Sandoval's walk rate could use some work as demonstrated by a 9.9% BB%. Just 25 years old, Sandoval has time to hone his five-pitch mix to improve control. If successful, front end of the rotation status awaits. Short term, keep in mind the Angels could deploy a six-man rotation, but if healthy, Sandoval still merits a spot on a mixed league roster.

Gets back in win column
PLos Angeles Angels
May 15, 2022
Sandoval (2-1) earned the win during Sunday's 4-1 victory over Oakland, allowing one run on four hits and four walks with four strikeouts in 6.1 innings.
ANALYSIS
Sandoval was spotted a two-run lead before he took the mound and cruised for the most part after escaping a bases-loaded jam in the first inning. The 25-year-old got back on track following two decent outings, though he's now walked at least three batters in three straight outings. A 3.76 xFIP compared to a 1.91 ERA indicates Sandoval has overperformed -- the main culprit being a high 10.7 percent walk rate -- though he's proven to be one of Los Angeles' best full-time starters and should continue to produce, especially with a rematch against Oakland on tap for next weekend.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2021
2020
Sandoval's chances of making the 2020 Opening Day roster increased after new Angels manager Joe Maddon announced plans for a six-man rotation. However, Sandoval was diagnosed with COVID-19 and was late to summer camp, putting the spot in jeopardy. He was able to catch up and served as the sixth starter around a couple trips to the alternate training facility when a sixth starter wasn't needed. For the year, Sandoval struggled with homers, allowing 10 in just 36.2 innings despite inducing grounders at a 55.3% clip. Sandoval altered his pitch mix, throwing more sliders in lieu of his curveball and changeup. His slider and change are thrown with similar velocity -- only eight-mph slower than his four-seamer which may help explain the homers as batters are better able to sit on a pitch. Sandoval is still developing, but it appears he's capped at a back-end starter, useful as a streamer.
Sandoval made his big-league debut in early August and held down a rotation spot for the rest of the season despite largely mediocre results. His 24.9 K% was strong, but it came with a poor 11.2 BB%. A 21.4% HR/FB rate also held him back and indicates potential positive regression going forward, while his 4.02 xFIP paints a fairly optimistic picture of what he's been able to do thus far. His fastball averaged 93 mph (fine for a southpaw) and he pairs it with a swing-and-miss changeup, a high-spin curveball and fourth-pitch slider. Even with the unconvincing start to his career, he enters 2020 poised to either break camp in the rotation or serve as the next man up in the case of an injury, and injuries typically hit this rotation harder than most. His command issues make him a WHIP liability, but he should be a solid source of strikeouts if he gets the innings.
