2022 Player Outlook
Loaisiga really came into his own in 2021. He gained velocity on most of his pitches and his fastball occasionally hit the 100-mph mark. His walk and strikeout rates improved, and opposing hitters batted just .212 against him. His ground ball rate was a career high 60.9%. Based on his improved skillset Loaisiga should be considered the Yankees’ closer in waiting. Fantasy managers seeking relief pitchers who have a direct path to a potential gig as a closer should keep Loaisiga on their watch list.
