Chicago Cubs pitcher Justin Steele is a player that is projected to be a bright spot in the team’s rotation this year and on Saturday, he got his 2022 campaign off to a good start.
The 26-year-old Steele went five strong innings, giving up just 4 hits, walking 1 and striking out 5 Brewers in his season debut. He did get into one jam but managed to get out of it not allowing a run. It was Steele’s best start of his young career and gives the franchise some hope for their rotation moving forward.
Steele is expected to be a key component for the Cubs’ pitching staff this season and doing this against a good Brewers lineup is a good building block.
Let’s see if he can keep it up in his next start.
