The 2022-23 MLB offseason is in full swing and many teams are looking for pitching help. Thankfully, there's a good number of quality arms available for them to choose from.

One pitcher of interest is Zach Eflin, who just helped the Philadelphia Phillies reach the World Series. He may not be an ace, but he's been consistently solid for Philadelphia.

How much will it take to land Eflin? ESPN's Kiley McDaniel has an idea.

Zach Eflin Contract

Per McDaniel, baseball industry experts believe Eflin will get a new contract for roughly three years and $39 million -- not bad for a pitcher with only one season of 150 innings on his resume.

While Eflin hasn't been the most durable pitcher throughout his career, he's been remarkably consistent. His ERA has fallen between 3.90 and 4.20 in each of the last four seasons, so you generally know what you're getting from him on an annual basis. .

It also helps that Eflin acquitted himself well in his first taste of the postseason this fall. Pitching entirely in relief, the right-hander logged a 3.38 ERA with 12 strikeouts in 10.2 playoff innings.

With several quality seasons still likely ahead of him, Eflin projects as a solid mid-rotation starter wherever he ends up.
