Why is a power bat like him batting 2nd instead of 4th or 5th to get more RBI opportunities?

Seriously all his HRs are solo shots

The problem here is more Kinser being lead off then Reyes hitting 2nd.

Because they typically pull him late in games when they have the lead. Hitting him 2nd allows him to get that extra at bat in late in the game before they sub in a defensive replacement.

This guy needs to play everyday.

 

to be fair, he has had at least 1 at bat in every Pads game so far this year but yes, i do agree he should be an everyday starter. 


 

#Padres Franmil Reyes is batting .307/.367/.569 over his last 72 games played.

Ummm, he is pretty much an everyday starter at this point.  He's started 9 games straight and 14 of their last 16.  Playing time is no longer a concern even if their OF is still a bit crowded.

Not sure why my post was deleted, but like I said last night, him batting 2nd is a good thing as he should see a lot of good pitches batting ahead of Machado.  Like so...

you would assume those are just statistically oddities based on a few things (being hot/cold/early in his career) that would even out over time.  Don't fix what isn't broke for now but this dude is a prototypical cleanup hitter...

May he practice throwing and catching.

Mr Statcast we are learned

Someone said it would take a miracle/impossible feat to get his average up that quickly. Franimal the miracle worker.

I defended him from the start but even as his biggest fan I almost jumped ship

ty to the guys posting all the statcast stuff from the start

people turn on the Padres to watch Machado and Tatis, but leave knowing about La Mole

Still can’t get over how he wasn’t protected on the 40 man after 2017 and no team even took a sniff.  My Friars got really, really lucky.

Statcast Jesus strikes again

I have to do an apology ritual every time he hits a HR now.  Boy, was I wrong, but it's a good kind of wrong in the end.

Best part is it wasn't a solo.

 

On pace for 43 jacks now

This guy seems to be heating up, has anyone taken a look at his statcast data to see if it backs up his recent performance?
