2022 Player Outlook
Pineda was excellent for the Twins last year, when healthy, in terms of being a steady presence in the rotation. His 3.62 ERA was good, though his 4.21 FIP and 4.96 xERA may point to some luck. My biggest concerns with Pineda are health, his diminishing strikeout rate, and at some point, his propensity to allow hard contact will catch up with him. He'll be a stalwart in the Detroit rotation, health willing, which is good for innings, but his fantasy upside is capped due to that low strikeout rate.
