Now Cohen's ATC system has revealed its projections for the 2022 MLB season.
One thing we can tell you: Cohen's projections have identified Rays shortstop Wander Franco as a player who is set to take the next step developmentally. Franco slashed .288/.347/.463 over 301 plate appearances with seven home runs, 39 RBIs and two stolen bases in his rookie season but Cohen's model predicts improvement across the board.
Cohen is predicting Franco slashes .291/.353/.469 with 17 home runs and seven stolen bases for the player who signed a record-setting 11-year, $182 million contract extension. He's also predicting that Franco belts 31 doubles and nine triples, making him a solid candidate to be an everyday starting shortstop in your 2022 Fantasy baseball lineups.
Cohen's projections are also extremely high on an undervalued starting pitchers who is set for a strong rebound from 2021. You ABSOLUTELY need to see what the ATC system has to say about each player before going on the clock.
