Default Avisail Garcia All-Star, MVP, Triple Crown Watch

I like this version of him. I hope he keeps it up, at least until the trade deadline.

There's our resident optimist! Nice to see you back!

I'd love it if Avi can sustain his success over the season.

I'll be the first to admit I don't understand all this but the case is made pretty thoroughly about his prospects for the rest of the season:

"Avisail Garcia | Chicago White Sox | .373/.420/.600 with 4 HR, 0 SB, 17 RBI, and 13 R in 81 PA

Hasnít shown major skill changes (22% K& is slightly better, but 17% SwStr% is flat)
  • That SwStr% is 4th-highest in the league
  • 7% BB rate is actually down from last yearís 8%
  • Pitchers are getting ahead even more often w/73% F-Strike% (5th-highest)
  • Still chasing too much with 39% O-Swing slotting 22nd in league and equal to 2016 (13th-worst)
  • Getting more fly balls, but still only 28%
  • Pulling the ball a lot more at a career-high 44%
  • Riding a .471 BABIP & career-best 20% HR/FB

OUTLOOK: It seems like Garcia is simply on a hot streak. There are no discernible skill improvements or approach changes behind the run. He might be selling out for more power a bit with the Pull rate, but thatís about all you can hang onto as a change. Looking at a .255 AVG/16 HR/5 SB bottom line. That means heíd hit about .235 the rest of the way if he puts up 550 at-bats."

We'll see.

Most likely because it is a given.

Hawk's at home in Granger losing sleep since Avi is infringing on an offensive onslaught the likes we've only seen from his idols Ted Williams and YAZ!!
