2022 Fantasy Outlook
Ober had a strong showing in his first taste of the majors with a 4.19 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 96:19 K:BB across 92.1 innings (20 starts) before his season ended due to a hip injury in late September. He displayed a good strikeout rate (25.3%) and strong walk rate (5%), but struggled with the long ball (1.95 HR/9). At 26, he's a bit of a late bloomer after missing significant time in college due to Tommy John surgery and struggling with injuries early in his minor league career. He doesn't have an overpowering fastball (92.5 mph average), but it's offset by his outstanding control and improving off-speed pitches (slider, curve ball). Ober is expected to win a rotation spot to begin the 2022 campaign and could improve dramatically if he can keep the ball in the park. Read Past Outlooks

Manager Rocco Baldelli said Tuesday that Ober (groin) will return from the injured list to start during the upcoming three-game series against the Royals, which begins Friday, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
ANALYSIS
The 26-year-old covered five innings during his rehab start with Triple-A St. Paul on Sunday, and it's not a major surprise he'll make his next outing in the majors. Ober may face some minor workload limitations in his first start back from the groin injury which has sidelined him the past few weeks.
