Cristian Javier began 2022 in the bullpen and then started 25 games, bringing joy to fantasy managers' hearts everywhere. The 25-year-old tossed a 94-mph fastball with a 77-mph curve and mixed in a slider and changeup to create an 11.74 K/9. He struck out 194 batters in 148 2/3 innings and held a 2.54 ERA and 0.95 WHIP. His BABIP and LOB% are both due for regression, and his xFIP was 3.53, so it's important to temper expectations in those departments. All in all, Javier will make a great SP3 with SP2 upside.

Cristian Javier wins again Saturday vs. Rays

Cristian Javier was excellent on Saturday in a 2-1 win over the Tampa Bay Rays. He tossed six shutout innings, allowing just two hits and two walks striking out seven.

Fantasy Impact

Javier will finish his 2022 season with a stellar 2.54 ERA to go with his 194 K's in just 148 2/3 innings. He has pitched far better than his 11-9 record suggests. Next season, be prepared to use an early-to-mid round pick if you want his services.
