2022 Player Outlook
Mullins, who had always been a better hitter when batting left-handed, gave up switch hitting for good last season and instead opted to only bat left-handed. The decision resulted in him having a career year. He joined the exclusive 30/30 club, struck out less, and set career highs in BA, hard hit rate and barrel rate among others. Mullins’ expected stats suggest that we might see some batting average and home run regression, but a 20/20 2022 season is very possible. His ADP is considerably higher than it was last season. His new found power and speed potential is attractive to fantasy baseball managers. He’s the 10th outfielder off the board in early preseason NFBC drafts, and he’s being selected ahead of established power hitting outfield commodities like Teoscar Hernandez and Aaron Judge.
