2022 Player Outlook
Another year, another 30+ home runs for the veteran slugger. He started the year white hot with Washington, hitting 25 home runs in just 72 games, before getting injured, and then traded. During his time in Boston, he hit .291, thanks to an insane .364 BABIP by his standards, with seven homers in 41 games. He now gets to play in Philadelphia, in a good hitter's park alongside Bryce Harper, J.T. Realmuto and others. Last year's 17.5 percent barrel rate was a career high, and while his 28.6 percent HR/FB rate is rather high, his career mark is 25.1 percent, indicating that it's not really an outlier for him. Strikeouts will be a part of his game, but he's going to a good home park, and will hit in a good lineup for fantasy purposes. Hopefully you got your shares of Schwarber already, because his ADP is about to skyrocket, and rightfully so, as he may flirt with 40+ homers this season.
