Fangraphs Releases Record Predictions for Pirates, Rest of MLB

Published

on

Fangraphs released their 2022 projected standings for all six divisions in Major League Baseball, along with each team’s record predictions. They’ve pegged the Pirates for a record of 68-94 and a last place finish in the National League Central. They project the Cardinals (89-73) to win the division, followed by the Brewers (88-74), Reds (80-82) and Cubs (76-86).

The 68-win total would mark a seven-game improvement for the Bucs who finished 61-101 in 2021. Even with the better showing, Fangraphs projects the Pirates to be the third-worst team in Major League Baseball, ahead of only the Baltimore Orioles (64-98) and Rockies (66-96).

Prior to last season, Fangrpahs projected the Pirates to finish 65-97, which was second-worst in the league. The full projections for 2022 can be found below.
