Astros WHIP+ Shows an Above Average Rotation

Framber Valdez – 96
Framber Valdez had a good season, going 11-6 with a 3.14 ERA over 22 starts covering 134.2 innings. The bugaboo, is, and has been throughout his career, walks. There is some good news, though.
Valdez’ 3.88 base on balls in 2021 was far less than the 5.8 he registered in 2018 and 5.6 in 2019. That’s a huge improvement and it’s trending in the right direction, meaning Valdez could make a leap in 2022.
