2022 Player Outlook
After a career year in 2021 where he posted a 2.37 ERA, 12.55 K/9 and 2.44 BB/9 across 132.2 innings of work, Rodon cashes out with over 20 million dollars per year for at least this season. Rodon has an elite slider that generated a whiff rate north of 40 percent last year, and that marked the second time in the past three seasons that it was the case for that wipeout slider. The Giants are banking on Rodon staying healthy, and the durability concerns are real, as Rodon has made 25 or more starts just once (2016) in his career, and last year’s 132.2 innings of work were the most he’s thrown since his 165 innings in 2016. Health willing, with a great home park and a team with good track record with pitchers, Rodon is capable of heading your fantasy team’s rotation, although he’s more favorable as your second starter.
