2023 Fantasy Outlook
Coming off a season where deGrom made only 15 starts while dealing with elbow issues, it took only one spring start before he experienced shoulder soreness. It was soon diagnosed as a stress reaction in his right scapula, which sidelined him until August 2, though that latest injury didn't stop the Rangers from doling out a $185 million contract. The oft-injured right-hander gathered 64.1 inning over 11 starts in 2022, with typically dominant results. He was able to throw all his pitches, again relying on a 99-mph fastball about half of the time. There isn't a bigger wild card in fantasy drafts than deGrom. The pinnacle is the top pitcher in the game, and if he pitches anywhere close to his usual level, deGrom only needs around 150 frames to achieve No. 1 status. He's going to be drafted as one of the first 10 starters off the board, and if he has good spring, it could be top three. Just keep in mind, he'll be 35 years old and including rehab, deGrom has only thrown 182 innings over the last two seasons Read Past Outlooks
