    It feels like I'm in one of those quantum alternative reality shows, the one where Kevin Pillar is a sexy beast. But I can get used to it.

    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.

    Wow...

    Oh I know. The defensive stats didn't like him at the beginning of the year for some reason, UZR especially wasn't a fan. He's been regressing towards his career norms defensively though, DRS has him at 12 runs.

    Yeah, alot of defensive metrics are somewhat luck and opportunity dependant. Small sample size defensive numbers are basically useless.

    He's going to be a free agent in three years. He's set to make about 4 mil this year. He's more than earning his salary.

    I said the same thing about Smoak before the season last year, and somehow mysteriously he figured things out at the plate. I won't say Pillar is going to have a break out, but baseball can be a strange game. Kevin has never struggled with handling the bat. He just has zero plate discipline. It's hard to imagine that things will somehow change next year, but smoak, bautista and encarnacion were late bloomers so maybe Pillar will be too. I just realized I'm replying to posts from months ago. I hate the bump threads.
