  1. No thread yet on this guy??? Is this forum losing its lust? Coming off of "internal brace repair" surgery I was a little weary drafting him but felt like the value was right where I got him. Eitherway, he's off to a solid start. Baseball savant metrics look great posting career best barrel percentage, exit velocity, and max ev. His XBA- 313, XSLG-645 and hard hit rate is 66.7. Rhys started slow last year so its nice to see him off to a good start this year. Hopefully he keeps it up
  2. Of all of the early hot streaks, id put my shares in Lowe considering the minor league and prospect pedigree. Full-time playing time at the top of the line up and hitting in Texas. Sign me up! The batted ball profile is the crazy part. He is smashing to all fields.
  3. His barrel rate and exit velocity is off the charts and his batted ball profile is prettyinteresting. He is hitting opposite field 50% of the time and isn’t extreme fly ball happy. Very early but if he keeps this up he’s going to hit for average and power. I added as soon as I looked up his profile.
  4. This dude is permanently on the bench wtf!! How could a team trying to make the playoffs sir their best statistical hitter 4 straight games
  5. Hottest thing at the catcher position right now
  6. Matt Adams suffered an oblique injury last night which guarantees full time playing time to Kendrick for the foreseeable future.
  7. You want to find the most underrated fantasy player this year??? Look no further then to Howie Kendrick. Kendrick is having one of the best seasons of his career at the age of 35. A look at his superficial stats and also underlying metrics points to a player with solid rest of the season value. Keep chumming Kendrick..
  8. Quite possible. Worth monitoring though
  9. Not sure.. Those numbers do seem to be alarming though. Pitchers are obviously taking advantage of his aggressiveness at the plate. If he is going to full fledge break out then he needs to make the adjustment.
  10. Under high leverage situations, Franmil has a 10% line drive 60% ground ball 30% fly ball rate with a 20% hard hit rate. This is telling that Franmil doesn’t have much of an approach at the plate and is just a swing and rip type of player. Until he develops better plate discipline I don’t see much more improvement then what we have seen from Reyes .
  11. His improvements against lefties is intriguing
  12. A look at the superficial stats of schwarber and the results this year are indicative of a mediocre player not living up to the godlike performances schwarber had in the minor leagues. However, a deeper dive into schwarber’s underlying metrics points to a player on the cusp of making some noise. Schwarber currently has a top 9% exit velocity at 92.1% which is the highest exit velocity he has posted since 2016. His hard hit rate, per baseball savant, is top 7% which is his highest hard hit rate since 2016. Schwarber’s batted ball profile looks beautiful with a 21% LD 38.4%GB and 40.
