2023 Player Outlook
The 2021 Cy Young award winner regressed in 2022 in his first season with the Mariners. The ERA rose from 2.84 to 3.71 as he went 12-12 while averaging 10.10 K/9, which is normally a great metric for several pitchers but it was the first time that statistic was below 11.25 since 2015 for Ray. He still offers upside and plenty of strikeout potential. Don't expect a sub-3.00 ERA again, but draft him for the durability and skills to sit opposing hitters down.
