2022 Player Outlook

Velasquez would be far more intriguing in Chicago in 2022 if we would get a health guarantee, or promise of increased command. The strikeouts have always been there, and when healthy, he does a good job missing bats. However, when he doesn't miss bats, there have been significant issues, as he allows a ton of hard contact. Over the last three years, he's allowed a double-digit barrel rate twice, and a hard hit rate of at least 39 percent each season. The juice isn't worth the squeeze here for Velasquez in Chicago.
