2022 Player Outlook
In one of the great comeback stories in recent memory Mancini, who missed the entire 2020 season as he battled cancer, returned to the baseball diamond and played a full season. Other than a significant drop off in his overall BA, his stats seemed to be consistent with preseason projections. He might have run out of gas as the season wore on because Mancini did have a huge power outage in the second half of the season. He only hit five home runs in the second half after having hit 16 in the first half. Being another full year removed from his illness should help Mancini regain even more of his old form. Look for Mancini to add about .010 points to his 2021 BA and for him to hit 25 plus home runs this season.
