2022 Player Outlook
In 2021, Bundy went 2-9 with a 6.06 ERA, 5.51 FIP, 1.36 WHIP and an 8.3 K/9. He couldn't recapture the magic from his 2020 season, and many former struggles returned. Home runs? 1.99 HR/9. Strikeouts? Dropped. Walks? Increased. He also posted the lowest swinging strike rate of his career at 9.5 percent. Bundy is the de facto ace of this rotation. Yikes. Bundy was excellent in the shortened 2020 season, and Minnesota is hoping to catch lightning in a bottle and that the 2022 season is a repeat performance of that season. I'm not buying it, considering we have 705 subpar innings from Bundy in his career, compared to those 65.2 excellent innings in 2020.
