Contract Crowdsourcing 2021-22: Ballot 11 of 11

Free agency begins five days after the end of the World Series. As in other recent seasons, FanGraphs is once again facilitating a contract crowdsourcing project, with the idea being to harness the wisdom of the crowd to better understand and project the 2021-22 free-agent market.

In recent years, we’ve added a few features to the ballots based on reader feedback. You now have the option to indicate that a player will only receive a minor-league contract, or won’t receive one at all. Numbers are prorated to full season where noted. The projected WAR figures are from the first cut of the 2022 Steamer600 projections.

Below are ballots for six of this year’s free agents — in this case, another group of starting pitchers.

I think Matz very well could do better than this, but he seems like he’d be a strong candidate for the Rangers annual 3 year, $25-30M contract.

For some reason I thought Kim had a team option. If he is a free agent lots of teams will be looking at him to fill out the rotation, along the lines of the deal Tanner Roark got a few years ago (although it would have to work out better than Roark’s deal).

I’ll go 3 year deal worth 39 mil though a Blue Jays beat writer floated that Toronto might give Matz a qualifying offer if so I’m pretty sure he’d take it.
