Default Chances of matching IM or FM

Hello everyone, I just wanted to know what my chances of matching IM or FM. US-IMG with step 1 score 223. Had to take a LOA within a month of medical school for family issues but resumed after that with no gaps. Assuming I get 4 LORs and 1-2 publications, what are my chances of matching into IM or FM? Thanks for the advice!

I think the most important thing would be to get a very good score on ck and step 3 (if you decide to give it before residency). The other things that you mentioned look good as well but ck is very important.
