Astros: Steamer Projections for the Bullpen
5 of 9
Ryan Pressly: 4-3, 3.20 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, 30 saves
Ryan Pressly turned 33 earlier in December so perhaps that’s part of the reason the regression is so significant. In his first two full seasons (2019 and 2021) with the Astros, Pressly registered ERAs of 2.32 and 2.25 respectively and WHIPs below 1.00 in each season. Steamer sees a steep increase in walks per nine innings, up to 2.72 from 1.8 in 2019 and 2.0 in 2021. I’m more bullish on Pressly, especially in the ERA department.
