Fantasy baseball: Reason to worry about Carlos Rodon, Yankees’ rotation?
Fantasy baseball managers generally accept the improbability of squeezing an entire season out of major league starts from a host of established starting pitchers, including Texas Rangers RHP Jacob de Grom, Boston Red Sox LHP Chris Sale and Los Angeles Dodgers LHP Clayton Kershaw, but they expect high-quality statistics. when they perform.
New York Yankees LHP Carlos Rodon entered the 2022 season in this class and then made a career-high 31 great starts for the San Francisco Giants. He was in the top 10 fantasy starters. It seems Rodon is unlikely to play 31 games for the Yankees this year, as he’s out with a sprained left forearm and he’ll start the regular season on the injured list.
Whether he misses a few starts or many starts remains an issue, but those who have already invested in his statistical services should be at least a little concerned as he drops in our rankings due to uncertainty. In fact, when it comes to the New York rotation, there are quite a few of them.
