Don’t Give Up On Franmil Reyes
I understand that the playing time in the Padres outfield has been… well flat out annoying. They simply have too many options and outside of Wil Myers, no one is guaranteed playing time. However, Reyes has by far the biggest positive difference in actual slugging percent (.488) and expected Slugging (.811), good for a difference of -.323. The closest to him is Jordy Mercer, surprisingly, who has a -.278 difference between the two. Reyes has a 52.8 percent hard-hit rate and a 47.2 percent flyball rate. The ball is going to leave the ballpark often once he heats up. Oh, and he also has the largest difference between batting average (.220) and expected batting average (.364) of -.144! Stick it out!
