2023 Fantasy Outlook
Sears came into 2022 near the back end of the Yankees top 30 prospect and finished it as one of the pieces sent to Oakland in the Frankie Montas trade. Sears had worked as a starter throughout his minor league career as a strike-thrower whose command makes his stuff look better than it really is to get batters out. The league had little trouble with his fastball (.318 BA, .298 xBA), but his slider was rather unhittable as the league hit .130 off the pitch while swinging and missing at it one third of the time. The lack of velocity limits the fantasy upside Sears brings to the table as much as pitching for a terrible Oakland club does to him. His fantasy value would be tied up in his ability to get wins with good ratios, and all three of those areas are tough to project for this still-developing sophomore. Read Past Outlooks

Records quality start
POakland Athletics
October 2, 2022
Sears did not allow a run on two hits and two walks while striking out six over six innings Saturday against the Mariners.
ANALYSIS
Sears did not give up an extra-base hit after righty Adam Oller allowed three runs in the first inning during his outing as an opener. The lefty has struggled mightily during his last seven outings, recording a 6.06 ERA and 1.65 WHIP over 32.2 innings. This was the third quality start of the 26-year-old rookie's career.
