2023 Player Outlook
Rizzo’s 32 HRs were the most he’s hit since the 2017 season and his .256 ISO and 10.9 Barrel% were career bests. He only batted .224, but his 10.6 BB% helped him post an above-average .338 OBP. The ban on extreme defensive shifting should give his 2023 BA a slight boost. Back issues forced him to the IL last season but if he can stay healthy, his lefty power bat and short Yankee Stadium rightfield porch make him a candidate for another 30-plus HR season.
