Francis Lindor (NYM): 2-3, 2 HR, 3 R, 3 RBI, 2 BB, SB.
On the 75th anniversary of Jackie Robinson’s MLB debut, it was a great day at City Field yesterday as the Mets proudly went 10-3 in their home opening game, the Wolf Diamondback, with the newly unveiled Tom Sever statue. In fifth place, with an on and one out and the Mets leading 3-0, Lindor returned with an up and 3-2 crack. Zach Davis Raised it to the second deck in the right field. For good measure, he added another home run, this time from the right side, he suffered Caleb Smith 0-2 at breakneck. Don’t give up, his team player Starling Marte Happily paired with a joint meal of his own, the home run is the first event of his year.
After signing a major contract extension last season, Lindor dropped a relatively disappointing 125 games at 317 wOBA and 103 wRC +, the lowest marks of his career. But his 2-3, 2 HR, 3 R, 3 RBI, 2 BB, SB line from yesterday It reminds us of what he is capable of. Those three 30 home run seasons with Hindsight 20/20, Cleveland may have had unreasonably high expectations, and I wonder if there is a very solid middle ground to move 24-26 home runs forward.
Another question for Linder is, where does his batting average end? After reaching .284 in 2019, his average dropped to .258 before falling below .230 in 2020. Last year’s results appear to be somewhat harsh, considering that it is supported by .248 BABIP. Will decrease to an extent. Most predictions are he will hit .255 this season, but who knows? If he breaks it and approaches the mark of his career.278, he could become one of the best deals of the year.
Let’s see how the other hitters did on Friday:
Spencer Torkelson (THE): 2-3, HR, R, 2 RBI.
Torkelson, the first overall choice since the 2020 draft, broke a deadlock Brad Keller In seventh, for his second career, he pushed a ball deep into the seats on the left-field. After not winning his first four games, he has now put together five wins in his last four games. Home run last night, becoming game-winner, traveled 432 feet with a single shot, EV of 111.5 MPH.
Caesar Hernandez (WSH): 2-5, 2 r.
Since Hernandez is an average winner with 429 PA throughout.319 wOBA and 98 wRC +, there is nothing exciting about Hernandez. However, if you are looking for Stopcap MI in the Deep League, this is a reminder that he is hitting the lead off front. John Choto And company. Currently 7% added to Yahoo, he is on a normal six-game hitting streak, and he can be a good source for runs.
Shohai Othani (LAA): 2-3, 2 HR, 2 R, 3 RBI.
After being rude on the mound the night before, Ohdani took revenge by dusting off the first pitch he had ever seen. Matt Bush, 96 mph in one hour, into the Bullpen on the right for this year’s first home run. Fifth, with the Angels trailing by three, he helped trigger the rally with two two-run shots, this time outside Southampton. Colby Alert. The ruling AL MVP hit just .172 before exploding last night.
Jesus Sanchez (MIA): 2-5, 2B, 3B, 2R, 2 RBI.
Thursday night he tripled, so additional basic wins have been declining recently. After a triple-A across Jacksonville at 251 PA.449 wOBA, Sanchez belted 14 home runs at just 251 PA with Marlins last season, including 95.3 AEV and maximum EV on FB / LD. 113.9, of which the latter was at the first 9%. All of this represents an enigmatic power ceiling for a 24-year-old. His current K ratio of 20% would be a big improvement over last year’s 31.1%, so it is important to look closely to see if it sticks. Currently 28% are listed on Yahoo, and that number seems to be very low considering the easy power he has shown.
Petersen Game (SF): 2-3, HR, 1 R, 1 RBI
Peterson seems to have established himself as the Giants cleanup hitter against RHP. Sixth, he punched a solo home run to center the 2-0 pitch Sock Bliss The Giants need to take a 2-0 lead. The former Dodger has hit the good guys in his career with a .353 wOBA, and if he sticks to the cleaning spot he could be a cheap force more suited to daily leagues. Quick shout for his colleague Fame there; If you are in a league that respects walking, I will give him a long look.
Adam Frasier (Sea): 4-5, 2B, 3B, 2R, 4 RBI.
Tossed salad and scrambled eggs. With 11 runs piled up against the Mariners, Frazier had himself up four nights Jack Odorisi And Astros. His triple came fourth in a two-plated flyball that split the gap in the right-center. Four hit nights aside, it’s hard to be too excited about Frasier; He has never scored more than 10 home runs in a season, and last year, his barrel / PA was down 0.8%. However, he is a carrier.279 hitters, so he can deliver a bump on the batting average. Like Hernandez, who was previously listed, he is an option for deep leagues derived from assembling bats from the leadoff spot.
Nolan Arenado (STL): 2-3, HR, 2 R, 3 RBI, 2 BB.
The cardinals flowed Freddie Peralta Early morning last night. Arenado drew a walk on five pitches in his first blade appearance, part of the Red Birds’ four-run lead from the first inning. He hit an RBI single in his second at-bat, but last chased down a 2-1 pitch to save his best. Brent Sutter A two-run blast over the wall on the left created the final point of the game, 10-1, in favor of the visiting cardinals. Now starting his second year in St. Louis, the former Rocky is off to a blistering start and drops to.435 / .500 / 1.087.
Jord Kelenick (Sea): 0-3, RBI, BB.
Kelenick went from one of the Reds to a 3-for-0 -3 last night, including another strikeout and walk. Quiet game lowers his slash to .136 / .231 / .273. For those who created the best opportunity in the hope that he would leave in the second year, it had not yet happened. When we get a better model it will definitely equal some, but keep track of his strike rate, it is now at 38.5% swollen.
Garrett Cooper (MIA): 2-3, 2B, R, BB.
Cooper is an interesting case. The thirty-one-year-old, who was first sacked by Auburn by Brewers in 2013, has never had a chance to show what he can do for the entire season. However, starting with his major league debut with the Yankees in 2017, he dropped to 288 / .355 / .453 at 916 PA throughout his playing season from time to time. He’s a part of the Marlins lineup and hits second or third every night. Only 2% of people are registered with Yahoo, and I feel that number is coming. He also has the added bonus of being 1B / OF eligible.
