"Better health could be worth a lot. Carson Kelly was their best player, but he missed seven weeks after Walker Buehler broke his hand and wasn’t nearly the same hitter after he returned. Zac Gallen made three trips to the IL and just 23 starts because of them. Ketel Marte’s left hamstring cost him 60 games. Luke Weaver made just 13 starts around a shoulder injury. That’s more or less this team’s core, and it just wasn’t on the field enough this year."
