I know this seems like a bench coach question but who has more upside Frenchy or Teoscar Gernandez?

 

You can probably count the players on 1 hand that have more upside than Franchy

I thought you were referencing the xAVG stat calculated by xStats.org.  This must be something different because I am fairly certain that the numbers on XStats are calculated using ExitVelo+LA.  If I may ask, where is the above paragraph from and where do you get your xBA values?

Yeah, I was but I'm pretty sure they are relatively equivalent. xBABIP should be the one primarily driven from statcast data quality of contact, exit velo, GB/FB/LD. I think they use that and factor it in to get the xAVG stat.

 

Someone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong as it is an educated guess on my behalf.

Wish this kid would swipe a few bags. CS will hurt his opps going forward. Splitting hairs I know, kid can rake.

Hey make sure you temper expectations in here. He won't hit a HR every day. Just every other day.

I was just coming to ask the Statcast numbers - granted Vargas is basically throwing BP but that was a jack. I didn’t have him in the lineup this week which was a mistake but I bought in on the statcast daya alone. His AVG is starting to come up and K rate beginning to dip. As the only left handed OF they have he is going to see playing time. I love what I see from him.

Honestly his bat speed reminds me of so much Junior. Guys that are just tall lanky guys that generate so much power with the bat speed alone

I think he’s going to get 600 abs. Pirela at 2b solves a lot of of issues and the of defense with Margot and Franchy can be special

If he wasn't going to be a fixture already, Myers left the game with an oblique strain, so this kid should be in the lineup everyday, especially after showing some mashing skills against lefties.

If he tightens up his approach and improves his plate discipline a bit those 70/70 grade tools become much more appealing. Still young so hopefully he starts putting it all together.

Every one of his plate discipline statistics has improved in 2018. Pretty encouraging underlying metrics thus far:

 

- O Swing down 8.2% to 29.8% (outside the zone swings)

- Z-Swing down 4.7% to 67% (in the zone swings) 

- Thus, swing% down 6.3% to 49.6%

- O-Contact % up 4.5% to 51.3% (outside swings with contact)

- Z-contact % up 11.9% to 80%(!) (in the zone swings with contact)

- Thus, Contact% up 9.9% to 69.2%

- Zone% up 1.3% to 42.5% (pitches in the zone)

- F-Strike% down 18.4% to 48.3% (first strike percentage)

- SwStr% down 7.1% to 14.0%(!) (swinging strike percentage)

Golden,  that might be the furthest lh he I've seen in petco.  Have you seen a deeper one?

 

That was just a bomb.

not from a lefty for sure, Renfroe hit one up on the top of the western metal building though, not as far probably but the most impressive I have seen

462, but watch this one also its sick

 

Adrian hit one 471 according to the record books, longest in Petco history

 

which is odd, cause Adrian hit alot of bombs, but dont remember any monster jacks

Struuggles a lot vs LHP.  This upcoming week SD will face a lot of LHP so I would keep him on the bench.

I don't remember the Agonz one either. 

 

I remember the Upton one when he was with Arizona.  That one was equal to the Renfroe one for me. 

 

Random comment - during BP Matt Duffy, yes Matt Duffy, used to easily go second deck of the WMSB.

He's been hitting bombs off LHP this year too (2) and hit them for a higher AVG so far.

That's based off a very small sample and one of those were off Jason Vargas who is terrible.  Not sure who the other one was off.  He faces some tougher lefties this week so we'll see.  Throughot the minor-leagues he struggled vs LHP.
