Lance McCullers Jr.: 10-8, 3.66 ERA, 1.29 WHIP

Regression is also projected for Lance McCullers Jr. who finished 2021 at 13-5 with a 3.16 ERA and 1.22 WHIP. That’s projecting the 28-year-old McCullers to allow an additional half earned run per nine innings with a higher ERA and WHIP than his career averages. Steamer is not all in on the righty.
