* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against 2019 data (min 120 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.

2023 Fantasy Outlook
Overton was a nice story for the Reds early in the 2022 season, posting a 1.82 ERA and 0.89 WHIP over four starts in April and May. Unfortunately, that's when he went down with a stress reaction in his lower back which wound up sidelining him for nearly four months before he made a late-season return as a reliever. As a 29-year-old who had just a 14:11 K:BB over 33 innings, Overton's numbers warrant plenty of skepticism. He didn't produce weak contact or induce grounders, and he managed to give up just one homer even though two of his starts came at Great American Ball Park and one was at Coors Field. Overton deserves a chance to compete for a rotation spot, but it's unlikely he'll be fantasy relevant even if he wins one.
