2022 Player Outlook
Gurriel isn't that far removed from his impressive 2019 season, and a good number of his underlying metrics are similar. In 2021, Gurriel hit a career-best .319 with 15 home runs, 81 RBI, 83 runs scored and one stolen base. He's remained pretty consistent over the years, and when you look back at his numbers, 2019's 15.6 HR/FB rate was a significant outlier. His moderate power numbers and high batting average should continue, even at his advanced age. Gurriel's floor comes around the .280-.285 range and he should be good for another 15 home runs this season. A strong supporting cast around him will help some of those counting stats, and his one or two stolen bases will be that little speck of icing on the cake. He's a fine target to help boost your team's batting average, since that will be his biggest contribution to your team.
