Fangraphs on Arcia's Power Potential
Fangraphs profiles Oswaldo Arcia in their fantasy baseball section today. There's a lot of fun stuff to digest. Here's what grabbed me:
Lots more to break down, including his strikeouts and split. Bottom line: they think he's a sleeper. I hope they're right.
Of the 16 hitters who recorded an average distance above 300 feet, Arcia’s HR/FB rate was the lowest, coming in just below 15%. The unweighted average of the group was 22%, while 11 of the 16 posted rates of at least 20%. This all suggests that Arcia could be due for a nice bump in HR/FB rate next year if he maintains that same distance.
