As in Hernandez’s case, he lights up the top half of the chart, but then some glaring holes show up. The next four sliders point to his horrible plate discipline (6% BB%, 28% K%). At least the plate discipline metrics gets some love.
Sprint Speed shows how fast he can run and can be helpful with predicting stolen bases. The final three metrics bring to light the defense.
Besides it keeping a guy on the field, these measures are worthless for our fantasy game. Even with the bottom factors, it is simply a power-centric graphic.
This may be the most trusted but misleading graphic used in (fantasy) baseball analysis. It was all over Twitter today with the Teoscar Hernández trade to show off his greatness.
The key when using, seeing, and even hearing that it’s great, is just to assume the player can hit the ball hard and nothing more. Don’t even assume the guy can hit home runs.
The Toronto Blue Jays traded All-Star outfielder Teoscar Hernandez to the Seattle Mariners in exchange for pitchers Erik Swanson and Adam Macko, the teams announced Wednesday.
“We began our off-season with the intent to add impact and length to our lineup,” Mariners president of baseball operations Jerry Dipoto said in a news release.
“In adding Teoscar to an already solid foundation, we feel we’ve become a far more dangerous offensive club.”
Hernandez, 30, hit .267 with 25 home runs and 77 RBIs in 131 games last season for the Blue Jays. The 2021 All-Star selection hit a career-high .296 with 32 homers and 116 RBIs two seasons ago.
Hernandez made his MLB debut in 2016 for the Houston Astros. The Astros traded Hernandez and outfielder Nori Aoki to the Blue Jays in 2017 in exchange for pitcher Francisco Liriano.
Hernandez is eligible for arbitration this off-season. He owns a career .262 batting average, with 133 home runs and 380 RBIs in 651 games.
