2022 Player Outlook

Chris Paddack boasts an elite changeup, and while his curveball has maybe developed into an average tertiary option, he's a fastball-changeup guy that needs those two pitches to be excellent to excel on the mound. He's been barreled up a good bit over the last two seasons, and the strikeout rate hasn't been there the past couple of seasons. Paddack is still incredibly young and he's going to a very good Minnesota team that will look to tap into that potential he displayed back in 2019. If his curveball doesn't take the next step, unless his fastball returns to -7 run value in 2019 (7 in 2020, 8 in 2021), 2022 could be much of the same as we saw in 2020 and 2021 for Paddack.
