Fantasy Impact:

This is hardly a surprise as Gurriel had a strong 2021 season, slashing .319/.383/.462 with a career-best 9.8 percent walk rate and an equally impressive 11.2 percent strikeout clip. He might be a late bloomer, but the 37-year-old has cemented himself as a key piece in the Astros' lineup for the time being.
