2022 Player Outlook

Ray messed around in 2021, cut down on his walks and won a Cy Young award. Who would have guessed that? In 193.1 innings last year, Ray went 13-7 with a 2.84 ERA (3.69 FIP), 1.05 WHIP and 11.5 K/9. He struck out 248 batters last year, and his 6.7 percent walk rate was fantastic, given where he came from. He lit up the strike zone, posted a career year, and parlayed that into a nice chunk of change. There's likely to be some regression for Ray in 2022, as he greatly benefitted from a .268 BABIP last year, whereas his BABIP sat at .310 from 2016-2020. The reduced walk rate might take a slight step, and that reduced walk rate really helped Ray avoid self-inflicted damage. Also, he won't have the backing of a potent Toronto offense. He should still be just fine overall, but understand that 2022 will not be a repeat of his 2021 season. Don't worry, the strikeouts aren't going anywhere, so even with his ERA regressing a bit, he's still a threat to lead the league in strikeouts.
