    Shatkins are exploring all avenues to improve the OF. I don't have a problem with this, they are just seeing where the best value is.

    There's no way in hell Shatkins will trade prospects for Garcia.

    I agree. I want nothing to do with him unless he's basically free. If the White Sox want to take a couple C prospects then sure take a flier but that's not going to happen.

    I almost have no faith he will duplicate last years success.

    Who's the best prospect you'd give up for Avisail Garcia? Nobody expects a repeat, but he is only 26, coming off a 4.2 WAR season (in only 136 games). I don't think he'd be a terrible fit in LF.

    I'd give up Urena & C.Greene.


    Anyone know if he puts up above average exit velocity - or if his advanced metrics (launch angle, etc.) are promising?

    Good questions. I did some stat scouting and it looks like he pulled the ball more last year and hit more flyballs as well.

    There's nothing in his profile that would suggest his success last year was sustainable.

    His xWOBA was .356

    His expected wOBA, which takes into consideration launch angle and exit velocity, was .356. It does not consider defensive shifts or the speed of the runner, though.

    It's possible there might actually be something there.

    He wasn't really affected by shifts though and once teams start to catch on he's pull happy now that could effect his numbers.
