2022 Player Outlook
Gausman is coming off a career season in which he posted career bests in wins, ERA, and WHIP. He continued to walk fewer batters and he also limited the number of HRs hit against him. Using his split-fingered fastball really helped him dominate in 2021. Gausman has finally put it all together the past two seasons. Based on 2021 ERA estimators and his xERA we’re likely to see some ERA regression but not enough to be a concern. With the talent surrounding him and his increased usage of his highly effective splitter he has the potential to produce a 15 win season.
