2022 Player Outlook
When Trout was on the field last year, everything was peachy. He made a lot of hard contact, the barrel rate was incredibly high, and the only place to really nitpick was this his launch angle of 12.9 degrees was the lowest its been in the past seven seasons. However, he dealt with another injury that kept him to just 36 games last year, marking the third time in the past five seasons that he spent time on the injured list. Do you think Trout stays healthy in 2022? That's the big question. Other than his high strikeout rate from last season, everything is excellent for Trout, and now you don't have to have the first or second pick to get him. The upside might be too much for many to pass on, but if you have any reservations about his health, you might find yourself passing on him. Regardless of what you think about Trout, if he somehow gets past the top 18-20 picks, you almost have to take him.
