2022 Player Outlook

Despite his home run rate being higher than what you would want for a reliever in the later innings of games, Givens was exceptional last year at limiting hard contact. He threw his changeup more than ever before, and that pitch posted a .129 batting average against in 2021. After an odd 2020 season where he allowed way more fly balls than usual, it was great to see his ground ball rate closer to 40 percent than 20 percent. With a strong spring and early start to the year, his closing experience should prove valuable to the Cubs.
