    2017 BREAKOUT ALERT.. Kevin Pillar

    His new short and quick approach will do wonders. His HR total will be most likely be in the single digits, but his new approach will no doubt increase his numbers everywhere else. He sure looks a lot more comfortable at the plate in the few AB's he's had so far and it appears Jacoby may have found what he needed.

    He's hit well at every level of pro ball except at the MLB level. He has a natural born ability in getting the barrel to the ball but big league stuff (especially secondaries) are recognized too late. His new shorter approach will allow him to let the ball travel a bit longer before committing. Just the way he's taking pitches now would indicate he's seeing the ball a lot better.

    The talent is there, but his approach needed something to adjust to the superior MLB pitching. He seems like he may have found something, so look for his offensive numbers to be much better.

    .285 / .330 / .440

    Would be nice but I kinda doubt it.

    I'll bet you 50$ he's a sub 100 wRC+ guy? Min 300 PA's?

    That Goins kid really looks lost at the plate this season with his 000/000/000 slash line. I wonder what day he gets DFA'd. I'm guessing last week of March.

    a .770 OPS for Toronto is basically a 110 wRC+
