Default Has Yoan Moncada turned a corner?

Still striking out but now also getting hits. What do we think?

He’s really good. A ridiculous number of strikeouts are just part of the game now.
Ridiculousness across all sports:

(1) "You have no valid opinion because you never played the game."
(2) "Stats are irrelevant. This guy just doesn't know how to win."

He needs a thousand ABs before a judgement can be made.

I donít think he turned a corner. I think the randomness of an unusually low BABIP over a painfully small sample size simply reverted to something closer to normal.

Score one for advanced metrics here. Moncadaís exit velocity and his BABIP told us all season long that this type of correction was bound to happen, especially when his high walk rate held steady at an elite level (over 10% for much of the season).
