2022 Player Outlook
Snell has certainly seen some drop off since his 2018 Cy Young season where he won 21 games with a 1.89 ERA in 180.2 innings of work. That season seems like an outlier as it’s the only season where he posted an ERA under 3.00 and he hasn’t thrown over 130 innings since. Last year was tough as he sported a 4.20 ERA, and an elevated fly ball rate. Heading into 2022, Snell is currently being drafted just outside the top 100 players. He’s going 30 spots after Musgrove and almost 20 spots after Darvish. It’s highly unlikely we get another season out of him like 2018. If you’re taking Snell you’re hoping he carries on how he finished the 2021 season. Over his final eight starts he had a 1.83 ERA with 55 strikeouts in 44.1 innings of work.
