2022 Player Outlook
After Jeffers hit .273 in 2020, he hit just .199 in 2021, but he did manage to hit 14 home runs in just 85 games. His strikeout rate jumped to 36.9 percent last season, and his average plummeted, largely in part to leaving the zone more than the previous season. With regular playing time, Jeffers should provide nice power from the catcher position, and the trade of Mitch Garver for Texas would have allowed Jeffers to get the lion's share of the at-bats. However, Minnesota went out and acquired Gary Sanchez to be their new Mitch Garver, pushing Jeffers back into sharing catching duties for the Twins. While he’s likely not as good in 2022 from a batting average perspective as he was in 2020, he certainly won’t be as poor as he was in 2021.
