2022 Player Outlook

If 2021 taught us anything here it is to never give up on top tier talent because of a down season. Austin Riley came up in 2019 and had a rocket start but he struggled towards the end and then had a miserable 2020 campaign. At that point many lowered their expectations for the youngster given his immense strikeout rate and low contact rate. All that changed in 2021 however as Riley thrived, hitting .303 with 91 runs, 33 home runs and 107 RBI with an OPS of .898. The average was fueled by a .368 BABIP which likely sees regression in 2022 but we know the power upside is legit and we have to remember that Riley was once a Top 20 prospect in baseball and a former first round pick. The talent has always been there and we saw the upside when he can put it all together. Hopefully the Braves can convince Freddie Freeman to  come back to provide some additional lineup support for Riley this season. Riley currently has a Top 50 ADP in standard formats and is being drafted as the sixth third basemen off the board.
