    Re: Joey Gallo's historic K-rate and BABiP

    I realize no one cares, but Gallo's K-rate now exceeds his SLG at the MLB level.

    21 G
    76 AB
    5 HR
    36 Ks
    .224/.306/.461

    If anyone is having a "Joey Gallo Historic K Rate" game used fire sale please contact me. I have a soft spot for 21 year old power hitting lefties who have already had a taste of the Major Leagues.

    153 PA
    133 AB (1.75 AB per K)
    76 K (49.67% of the time he steps up the plate, he strikes out at the MLB level)
    .173 BA
    .281 OBP
    .368 SLG
    .195 ISO

    How do you feel about 23-yr-old strike out specialists... who aren't pitchers?

    If Gallo is allowed to start on an every day basis in MLB, he might eventually figure out pitch recognition. Otherwise, he will absolutely destroy Mark Reynolds' reputation as the worst strikeout hitter of all time.

    Career across all levels:

    1869 AB
    794 K
    324 BB
    159 HR

    42.48% K-rate
    8.5% HR-rate
    17.3% BB-rate

    Maybe Gallo will eventually figure out MLB pitching, but he likely won't improve until 2019, if ever. So, is a 25-yr-old Russell Branyan two years from now worth anything to an MLB team today?

    He's improving!

    248 AB
    112 K
    .194 BA
    .306 OBP
    .508 SLG

    Now that Gallo has enough ABs to no longer be considered an extremely small sample size, here are his 162 game averages:

    222 Ks
    477 ABs
    95 Hs
    39 HRs
    77 BBs
    .200/.319/.495
    .295 ISO

    Basically, over the course of an average 162 game season, Gallo is expected to tie the MLB strikeout record.

    Of course, someone will undoubtedly bring up Aaron Judge, whose average strikeouts per 162 is one higher, but Gallo still takes the prize for worst contact hitter, since his strikeout rate (.465) crushes his OBP (.319). Judge, by contrast, has an OBP (.404) that exceeds his strikeout rate (.400).
