2022 Player Outlook

Obviously, a 14 percent walk rate isn't something to celebrate, so hopefully, that is improved upon. The 29 percent strikeout rate is solid, but Wick's ability to miss the sweet spot of the opposition's bat is impressive. He used his fastball more in 2021, and added a slider into the mix, resulting in all four of his primary pitches posting a whiff rate of at least 26 percent. That's excellent! He went just 5-for-8 in save chances last year but has the lead on the gig for 2022. Wick has the path to begin the year as the closer for the Cubs in 2022, and obviously, just having the closer label tied to your name boosts your fantasy value. Wick's leash may not be as long as others in the game, but a lack of true closing experience behind him certainly helps. Wick will rely on minimizing hard contact and hopefully push closer to a 33 percent strikeout rate to boost his fantasy outlook for 2022.
