    Pitchers are now trying to get him out on sliders away. He either needs to layoff or stay on it and hit it the other way like he did in the minors.


    I didn't realize how many big swings he takes either.

    anything right of dead center is a right field home run he hit one in texas he beat the indians in another game...

    Re: 2018 Gleyber Torres Performance Thread

    I would greatly appreciate if someone more knowledgeable than myself can explain how and why Gleyber Torres has a negative defensive value of 3.0 (Fangraphs). I don't know how to interpret advanced defensive metrics. He makes a ton of great plays by the eye test, but the numbers say he isn't all that good of a fielder. What is going on?
    On the other hand, you have different fingers.

    Fangraphs chat:

    McAllister 2:38- Explain Gleyber Torres power? Where did it come from?
    Dan Szymborski 2:38- He's a young phenom oozing with talent who always had power upside. Players that talented frequently do things that surprise and shock

    He SLG .645 in the AFL. It's not like we've never seen it. The parks he's been playing in don't help you hit HRs.

    The stupidest part of all this is that by using his current production in comparison to his mL numbers as their evidence they're unknowingly suggesting that Torres got the call and suddenly started using PEDs. That's laughable on its face.

    I said the same thing two years ago when Met fans were accusing Sanchez of PEDs.

    That's because Mets wish they had a young player hitting so well that other fans can accuse him of being on a PED.
