Fantasy baseball managers tend to accept the impossibility of squeezing a full season of major league starts out of so many, established starting pitchers, including Texas Rangers RHP Jacob deGrom, Boston Red Sox LHP Chris Sale and Los Angeles Dodgers LHP Clayton Kershawbut they expect quality statistics when they perform.
New York Yankees LHP Carlos Rodon entered the 2022 season in this class, and then he made a career-high 31 great starts for the San Francisco Giants. He’s a top-10 fantasy starter. It seems unlikely that Rodon will make 31 starts for the Yankees this year as he has sidelined with left forearm strainand he will begin the regular season on the injured list.
It remains a problem if he doesn’t start or get more starts, but those already invested in his statistical services should be slightly concerned, as he drops down our rankings due to uncertainty. In fact, when it comes to rounding up New York, it’s quite a lot.
