Javy Baez Will Be an All-Star

Javy Baez will be an All-Star in this league. Yes, the same Baez that has struck out 41.6% of the times he has stepped in the box. No, I do not buy my cars from Josh Gordon.

Javier Baez and His Swing

Javier Baez’s debut so far in the major leagues has been “hit or miss”. I mean that in a literal sense, Baez has either hit a home run or struck out in exactly half of his 74 major league at-bats. While he has shown some extreme power, his strikeout rate is troubling. Most of his power in generated from the wild hack of a swing he has. Of course, since he only 21, he still...
