Best Young OF 2018

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007fd16d129bc0>


Which surprising rookie OF will have the most productive (FGPTS) sophomore season in 2018?


I am curious to what has sold people on Hoskins already,


For me it’s a few things:

  1. Better current performance than Judge/Bellinger/Gallo, although this is by far the least important factor given the sample size disparity
  2. Elite plate discipline, even with power regression Hoskins walks a ton and is just barely over 20% strikeouts in his first exposure to MLB, while Judge and Gallo have severe contact issues and Bellinger walks less/strikes out more than Hoskins. To be fair, all four guys are walking at a well above average pace
  3. Projections prefer Hoskins to Judge/Bellinger/Gallo.
