Geno Development #2: Less three outcomes
Eugenio Suarez has always been a true three-outcome player. That means he'll walk a little, mash a few homers, and strike out a lot. But, small sample size be damned, this season feels slightly different.
1HR every 40 AB
While the strikeouts and homers are down, so is the walk rate. These stats mean Suarez puts the ball in play at career-high rates. Combine this adjustment with the hard-hit rate, and we might see sustained success in more traditional categories (BA, OBP).
