In an incredible turn of events, I’ve done all the infield 2022 fantasy baseball rankings. Less incredible, you’ve read them. It’s like that time your favorite team won because they played better than that other team but you convinced yourself they won because you cheered loudly. When I win the Fantasy Baseball Blogger of the Millennial in 2099, and my frozen head is accepting the award, I’m going to thank you, the readers, but I’m secretly going to be thanking myself. Without me, none of this would be possible. You’re a close second though! Okay, enough ranking of you and me, let’s rank some outfielders! Here’s Steamer’s 2022 Fantasy Baseball Projections for Hitters and 2022 Fantasy Baseball Projections for Pitchers. Subscriptions are up and running, and you can already get Rudy’s Draft War Room. Anyway, here’s the top 20 outfielders for 2022 fantasy baseball:

NOTE: All 2022 fantasy baseball projections are based on a 162-game season, and will be until we hear definitively there will be less games, due to the CBA. Also, I’m going on the assumption the NL is getting the DH.

NOTE II: All my rankings are currently available on Patreon for the price of a Starbucks coffee, if you get one of those extra grande frappuccino jobbers. Don’t wait for the rankings to come out over the next month, and get them all now.

NOTE III: Free agents are listed as just that and not yet projected. Once a guy signs, I will write out their blurb and add in projections, or remove them, if they sign in an unfavorable place. They are ranked currently where I think they might be if they sign on for a full-time job.

1. Juan Soto – Already went over him in the top 10 for 2022 fantasy baseball.

2. Luis Robert – Already went over him in the top 10 for 2022 fantasy baseball.

3. Ronald Acuña Jr. – Already went over him in the top 10 for 2022 fantasy baseball.

4. Kyle Tucker – Already went over him in the top 20 for 2022 fantasy baseball.

5. Bryce Harper – Already went over him in the top 20 for 2022 fantasy baseball.

6. Mike Trout – Already went over him in the top 20 for 2022 fantasy baseball.

7. Mookie Betts – Already went over him in the top 20 for 2022 fantasy baseball.

8. Yordan Alvarez – Already went over him in the top 20 for 2022 fantasy baseball.

9. Teoscar Hernandez – This is a new tier. This tier goes from here until Eloy. I call this tier, “Hol’ up, hol’ up.” This tier had me hol’ing up wondering why people weren’t higher on these guys. Ya know what’s kinda funny about projections, mine included in some instances. If they didn’t believe in a guy before, nothing is changing that. People just throw out gains like Garth Brooks threw out Chris Gaines. Teoscar went from a 30% strikeout rate guy to a 24.9% last year; two years straight of hitting .289 and .296 and Steamer is like, “Yeah, this guy is a .259 average drain.” Hol’ up! Hol’ up! Why? Is there a reason? I had reasons to worry about him last year, but Teoscar’s last two years xBAs were .294 and .282. He hits everything hard. He was 9th in the league in line drive rate; bottom thirty in the league in soft contact; the dip on the Launch Angle worked to maintain the solid average. Don’t love that his fly balls were down, due to that swing change, but he’s still a 36.1% fly ball rate guy. Couple that with 20% HR/FB, which he’s very capable of, and that produces roughly 170 fly balls or 34 HRs. Get into a few lucky ones, and he’s hitting 40 with just a hot streak. That’s with a .280+ average. Had real question marks about him last year, but I’m sold. Don’t need to a be a hol’ up, hol’ up because he’s a Hol’ up, Hol’ up. 2022 Projections: 87/34/102/.282/9 in 563 ABs

10. Tyler O’Neill – Guess it’s kinda what do you want — 35-ish/15-ish or 15-ish/35-ish? That’s O’Neill vs. Starling Marte. Of course, O’Neill is seven years younger, and Marte counts on his legs. Would prefer to trust a 26-year-old who is peaking vs. a 33-year-old who just had a career year, but who am I but a handsome guy who’s big brain accounts for 45% of his body weight? I mean, I just happen to have Albert Einstein five people down on my 23 and Me cousin chart, but so? Does that make me some kind of genius? Did I just need spellcheck to spell “genius?” Yes and yes! Okay, for real, hol’ up, why are people not trusting O’Neill? What am I missing? Hol’ up! You don’t like wonderful? None of the following mean much on their own, but here they are together: 17.9% barrel%, that’s top 3% in the league; 93 MPH exit velo, that’s top 6%; xSLG is .581, that’s top 3%; .384 wOBA is top 7%; same for his .391 xwOBA; and his 52.2% HardHit% is top 7%. His strikeouts (31.3%) worry me a bit, but last year was the star mitzvah for Tyler O’Neill; this year he goes to the Prom with a girl that looks like a young Sarah Jessica Parker. And Just Like That…I love Tyler O’Neill. 2022 Projections: 92/38/106/.262/11 in 571 ABs

11. Aaron Judge – That he’s unnaturally built like a walking Mt. Rushmore worries me. “Hey, Aaron Judge, cool costume, are you Teddy Roosevelt carved from rock in one of the Dakotas? You’re not wearing a costume? Oh, ok.” Hey, if I need a canal plowed in Panama, Aaron Judge would be my guy. What I actually need is a guy to stay healthy for 145 games. He’s done it now in two of the past four years, and, ya know, I can’t just say a guy is going to be healthy or injured for s’s and g’s. I need more. Actually, I’m fine with G’s, it’s the s’s I have a problem with. That’s why I’m taking this prune supplement. G’s up, s’s down, as I say in the bathroom. So, if you discount the injury discount, and count Judge for 145 games, then why wouldn’t you draft him? Guessing on injury? Doesn’t work that way. Need a better reason. So, all rise for Judge, but not your hands, this ain’t a hold up while being a Hol’ up. 2022 Projections: 91/37/101/.272/3 in 541 ABs

12. Eloy Jimenez – This is one of the bigger Hol’ ups. He was routinely a top 25 guy last year, and this year his ADP is 75. Y’all realize that he wasn’t bad last year, right? He was hurt. Was a dumb injury that sucked, but he returned and was fine. You knew that, though, right? Had you already moved on to fantasy football by that point? Like, what’s going on? What’s going through people’s minds here? You know you’re not drafting for last year, right? There’s no do-overs. By not drafting Eloy this year, it’s gonna hurt doubly, because of what you missed last year, and what you will miss this year. By the way, if you say “doubly” aloud, you sound drunk. If you’re ever pulled over, never say the word “doubly.” Whether you’ve been drinking or not. Eloy is a 35-40/.270+ hitter with 110+ RBIs. If you don’t want that, then cool, bend over so I can kick you in the ass. 2022 Projections: 82/37/111/.272/1 in 581 ABs

13. Starling Marte – This is a new tier. This tier goes from here until Randy. I call this tier, “Lionel Hutz at making the case for these guys.” There’s a case to be made all the guys in this tier could be higher, but I am most definitely not equipped to be making that case. Shame, because if there’s one thing this world needs it’s more lawyers. As for Marte, here’s my Starling Marte fantasy. I wrote it while ghost-riding the whip. 2022 Projections: 89/19/61/.277/32 in 534 ABs

14. Cedric Mullins – So, I overheard someone making the case for Cedric Mullins at a bar last night. They were across the room, and I couldn’t hear them, but I think I got the gist. They said, “He’s gonna rebate last year.” Maybe they said he was going to repeat last year. I’m a better lawyer than a lip reader. Last year, Cedric Mullins went 30/30/.291. It’s truly a shock that his stats didn’t float up above his ceiling so high that they left the atmosphere and spontaneously combusted.

“Mr. Fightfighter, sir, I need your help.”
“What is it, Timmy? Your cat in a tree?”
“No, my Cedric Mullins expectations floated over my house.”

Those expectations are gone forever now, Timmy. I’m so sorry. All parks are made differently. It’s what makes baseball cute. And what Mullins would’ve done in Kansas City doesn’t really matter, but, yeah, I’m gonna say it anyway. His 30 homers would’ve became 18. Baltimore was a great place to hit dongs, but that was changed this offseason, and his “KC homers” shows you how many of Mullins’s homers were “almost, but just not caught.” There’s enough garbage pitchers to help him, but even the grizzyarbagiest of them figured him out by the 2nd half; breaking and offspeed pitches aren’t his friend. His power was fine in the 2nd half (14 HRs), but he hit .261, and that’s much closer to reality. His Hard Contact 33.2% isn’t unheard of, but he was definitely in the top 5% of outcomes last year. There’s a chance here that you get more of the same, but a 15/25/.240 season is just as likely. 2022 Projections: 85/20/48/.263/26 in 588 ABs

15. Randy Arozarena – Think this is the same place I ranked him last year, and guess where he finished on the Player Rater at the end of last year? In the same place! Wow, you’re a quick study, huh? The Rice Bowl is sneakily becoming very predictable. But is that a good thing? *emoji with hand on chin, and other hand is patting a friend on the head in a real patronizing way* As George Harrison would say about this tier, “I hate these guys, and Paul and John.” I wanna like them! It’s hard to find steals, and I’m basically kicking all the outfield steals to the curb. It’s not great, Bob. But neither is The Rice Bowl’s peripherals. He looks like Tim Anderson, which I guess worked for Tim Anderson, but a .363 BABIP last year for a .274 average, and not even Anderson was striking out as much as The Rice Bowl. His 33.1% fly ball rate is okay, I guess, but Bowl’s a hiccup from a 18/20/.250 year, and I just can’t justify that. That hypothetical statline makes me think of this rhetorical question:  Are you Randy Arozarena or Randy Winn? Bet you didn’t wake up thinking you were going to encounter Randy Winn today. Honestly, I did it for the shock value. Oh, and Randy gets a Winn on average. More so than Bowl. Rice’s xBA was .220, because of how much lousy contact he makes. Sorry, one love, but I can’t go near him either. 2022 Projections: 81/18/87/.251/18 in 549 ABs

16. Nick Castellanos – This is a new tier. This tier goes from here until the top 40 outfielders for 2022 fantasy baseball. I call this tier, “IDWTFLISFSITOBHWR.” Which obviously stands for:  I Don’t Want To Feel Like I’m Struggling For Sexy In The Outfielders, But Here We aRe.  Don’t ask why the acronym used the first letter of every word then uses an R for “are.” Don’t question acronyms, in general. It’s not your job. So, yeah, outfielders aren’t in great shape in general, and, when you consider you need three, four, five, and sometimes six of them, then it’s not great. As for Castellanos, he signed with the Phils. So, the real question now, what unfortunate event is Castellanos going to homer during in Philly? Oh, no, Castellanos is going to homer during the untimely death of the Philly Phanatic. RIP Phanatic — you brought attention to Graves Disease and hypertrichosis in a fun and carefree way that forced people to watch you during rain delays and excessive pitching changes. Your humor and hijinks were everything to the city of Brotherly Love, and you embraced capitalism, unlike your socialist friend, Gritty. May your soul travel to mascot heaven where it belongs. So, Castellanos looks good in red, huh? He’s about to thump. The Greek God of Hard Contact goes to the home of hard contact from strangers with batteries, and any worries I might’ve had his fly ball rate was falling too low are assuaged by the stadium. 2022 Projections: 94/33/103/.277/3 in 581 ABs

17. Franmil Reyes – Someone should make a video game head like Pac-Man out of Franmil, then have him go around and eat $54 Vending Machine Steaks, because that’s his nickname, the $54 Vending Machine Steak, also because it would be fun. Live a little. For those new to the site, I say Franmil looks like a vending machine that dispenses steaks, and not some Steak-Umm wet wallpaper steak, but a $54 Vending Machine Steak. Damn, I love The Steak Man so much. The difference between him and Yordan, who I am also crazy about, is twenty points in average, and maybe 15 runs and 15 RBIs. I say “maybe,” because counting stats like runs and RBIs are hard to account for, and you know the $54 Vending Machine Steak loves him some ribbies. Put them in his gullet and let him eat! The $54 Vending Machine Steak isn’t outfield eligible in all leagues, so keep that in mind. Not forever. Like remember it for maybe three months, unless you have an important birthday or wedding anniversary to remember. 2022 Projections: 71/36/94/.252/2 in 527 ABs

18. Ketel Marte – Already went over him in the top 20 2nd basemen for 2022 fantasy baseball.

19. Brandon Lowe – Already went over him in the top 20 2nd basemen for 2022 fantasy baseball.

20. Giancarlo Stanton – A big part of Giancarlo is his sample size. *daydreams about Giancarlo’s sample size for five hours, exhales* If Giancarlo’s sample size is big…*daydreams again for seven hours but this time sweat drips from forehead*…then Giancarlo is going to be a top 20 outfielder, easily. If Giancarlo’s sample size is small…*daydreams again for seven hours, dreaming about making his sample size bigger*…then, well, we have many historical examples of Giancarlo when his sample size is small. 2022 Projections: 81/36/91/.262/1 in 487 ABs

I’d like to post my keeper dilemma here.

14 team 5X5 Roto SV+HLD, $270, keep 8. Unlimited roster moves in-season so I prefer more of a stars-and-scrubs approach.

Current keepers:
2B Ozzie Albies $33
SP Lance Lynn $13
SP Joe Musgrove $9
SP Sandy Alcantara $6
SP Alek Manoah $4
SP Shane McClanahan $4

Debatable:
OF Franmil Reyes $16
RP Emmanuel Clase $4
IF Ty France $4
SP Framber Valdez $4

Any advice on those last two spots?

Keeper question, gotta keep 2 of the following super meh guys. Old school format, only 3 OF’s, no MI/CI, one utility guy. 5 starters, 2 closers
So, I’m going to hold Boba, Julio, Goldy, J-mart
Need 2 of this mess
$5 -Jesus Sanchez, Lane Thomas, Ranger Suarez, or Joe Ryan
$13 PabLo Lopez
$13 Nelly Cruz
As always, your thoughts are appreciated!!

I’m in a 12 team 5 x 5 H2H categories, auction ($260) 4 keeper league. Here’s my keepers:

Burnes $14
Semien $12
Robert $24
Eovaldi $2

O’neill $20
McCullers $8
Soler $8
Franmil Reyes $13
Donaldson $6

I’m leaning towards the top 4 because I think theyre the biggest discounts but I like O’Neill and Reyes better than Eovaldi/Semien

Hi Grey, I posted this comment on Itch’s story from today, as I know he’s the prospect guy.

16 team 5×5 obp keeper league. Your rankings of India and O’Neill put me in a bit of a pickle. I love India and his 2B eligibility, but O’Neill has the muscles that make me feel safe at night. I can only keep two of the following, so who should I throw back?

-Corbin Burnes $15
-O’Neill $10
-India $6

Instant analysis from me (trust me, that doesn’t mean much): looks like your first 3 picks are great! Then, it feels like your team tapers off a bit. But again, when you consider that your 4th pick is pick 46, it actually looks pretty good. Especially the fact that you grabbed Musgrove. Ya, there might be some regression, but he was so good last year that even with regression, he’ll be significantly better than the average pitcher.

If Musgrove and Stanton do what they have the potential to do, I’d feel very good about this team.

That’s just me.

I agree with Coolwhip above; Eloy is too cheap. I heard he gets his dates to buy dinner (remember that dining-out thing before Covid times?).

As for Oniell, the only thing that bugs me about your ranking is that others are now going to take him sooner than I want to take him. I’m ultra high on Oneill and I’m just glad you’re also high on him. Proves I’m not out of my mind.

It may sound crazy right now, but I expect a top 5 OF finish from Oneill in 2022 and top 10 OF finish for Eloy. I’ll be looking at this tier every draft for my OFs: Oneill + Eloy.

Thanks as always Grey,

Grey,
I’m in a 6 team standard 5×5 roto. I have the #1 draft pick, but with the top 10 ranking really tight this season, I think I would prefer a draft position where I can get 2 top 10’s and a top 15 pick instead of waiting until the 12th for my second pick and 11 picks after each back-to-back turn. What position would you want to draft in this size league?

Not related to current OF’s but I have to mention something about Bonds.

He would need to make over 1100 consecutive outs to have his career obp fall below .400.

His career WAR is higher than if you add Frank Robinson’s 23rd overall career WAR and David Ortiz’s WAR together. Yet Bonds doesn’t get it in after 10 tries and Ortiz gets in first ballot. What a travesty.

Agree 1000% – – no possible way Big Juice Pig Ortiz is 1st ballot after Bonds got blackballed for a decade.

Big Juice Pig was a mediocre part timer until he suddenly found his inner Brady Anderson and put up 31HR out of nowhere as a 28yr old – – ironically, the same year his name showed up on the steroid list.

Big Juice Pig Ortiz = biggest bag licker in MLB history.

Eloy is so cheap right now! I feel like he’s going to move up a round and a half by April.

Winker is always the “what if he played a full season guy” smh… though he can go on stretches that make him worth the squeeze. Daily moves leagues, for sure taking a shot at cost. Deep rosters with limited moves like DCs i’d pair him with Tyler Naquin later in the draft as a cheap CYA

Coolwhip
Reply to  Grey

I’m on board with winker too, he was so good when healthy last season. There was a stretch that he as a top 5 OF on the season-to-date PR, granted Trout was on IL etc but still… That kind of production + replacement value still puts up a collective season of Top 20 OF like you have him here…

Agree on Walsh! its nutty. his counting stats are only going to get better, I’m saying this for the 500th time, but it was literally just Ohtani, Fletch, and him for a majority of the season… if the roster is remotely healthier he’s going to have like 10 more runs and RBIs, it’s redunkulous. So he could even move up on PR this year.

So glad I am taking the time to read these rankings! I went straight to your overall rankings on Patreon when I first got in, and a few positional, but not the top 20 outfielders yet. I had placed Franmil in my cheat sheet as a utility with Ohtani and Cruz. I didn’t realize he had 11 games in the OF last year!

It’s going to be so hard to pick my SP1 in round 4 or 5 when guys like Teoscar, Yordan, O’Niell, Judge, Eloy, and Alonso could actually slide that far.

Then again in round 9 when theoretically guys like India, Polanco, Baez, Polanco, Walsh, Franmil, and Jazz could be there!

It’s what I love about Yahoo leagues. Just my opinion I suppose, but I like getting my main 9 starting hitters in the first 11 or 12 rounds. If those 9 average 30-12-.268 then I can scrap together the pitching categories thanks to your help.

Oh, yesterday I had asked for help with a India/Riley trade. I ended up getting India and Baz for my Riley and George Kirby. I’m guessing you like India/Baz side of it?

Good list as always – your words of wisdom helped me snag Yordan in the 2nd round of a recent draft, not looking back.

Perhaps a bit unfair for Mullins with the new Camden wall in LF. He pulled all of his 30 homers last year (maybe that’s dangerous in of itself), but I don’t know how much impact the dimension changes will actually have on him?

True. 100% of his HR were to right of center. 22 of the 30 were in Camden as well. Mullins is tough because he stopped the switch hitting routine last year. But I’m not convinced he’s a 25+ HR hitter either regardless.

Awesome!

a. Was going to say more than awesome. OF looks so deep so far of underrated stuff. To wit, I have Franmil as #29 overall in my scoring system for 2022 off only Steamers data yet he’s currently ADP 129. So, get busy early with 2B and 3B picks ’cause the good ones are rare and chillax until Franmil in 5/6 or so. No?

I have a weighted system I use for 5*5. It’s complex but in short the calculation is like this.

(X score – AVG. for HRs)*20/factor y.

So if in a simple example for HRs

Player a 20
Player b 40
Player c 60

AVG=40
So player C scores 20 (60-40)*20/1. I want player C’s raw score to represent 20 of 100. In other words, the top guy (player c) for HR scores 20 for HR and factor ‘y’=20. So 60-40=20 and 20/(20/20)=20. Player b scores 0 and player a scores -1. I use data for the top 650 players (my last 5 bats are Bryan Dela Cruz, J Harrison, C-Dick, Adley and Kalhoun). Similarly, I do the same calculation for the other 4 categories (R, RBI, AVG., SB) each top player in each category getting 20. My top 3 are Tatis, VGJ and Soto.

I do the same for the pitching cats (W, S, K, ERA, WHIP). My top 3 are Hendriks, DeGrom and Diaz. But overall, Hendriks, DeGrom and Diaz come in at 16, 17 and 18 overall. Saves are big in shallow H2H.

So, using my system Franmil comes in at #29. Btw, Adolis comes in at 150 overall in my scoring system right around or close to where you have him ranked. It could be a fluke and it’s all a crapshoot and these are the words of a mad man.

Grey!!!

I don’t hate. His ranks just after FreddyP and just before Moncada. He has 1.0 WAR and 162 ADP in Steamers so, 152 ranking in my system is just ahead of ADP. In a shallow league you can do better. In standard RCLs, Adolis in round 10-12 depending the situation. That’s love, I say
