2022 Player Outlook
Remember being worried about Goldschmidt after he only hit .260 back in 2019 with three stolen bases? Those were the days. Goldy is back, baby! In 2021, he hit .294 with 31 home runs, 99 RBI, 102 runs scored and he was a perfect 12-for-12 in stolen bases attempts on the season, despite his sprint speed declining each of the last three years. Goldy was exceptional in 2021 and there's no reason that he won't be again in 2022. He has a great supporting cast around him for his counting stats, and his batted ball profile enjoyed some nice jumps, notably in barrel rate and average exit velocity in 2021. While I'm skeptical he repeats last year's launch angle of 17.1 degrees, it won't affect his power numbers. Draft Goldschmidt to be a quality producer across the board in all five categories.
