Re: The dawn of Yorman Rodriguez?
I wanted to bump this thread to show how Yorman has continued his hot start into Bakersfield. In his first 85 PA, Yorman is hitting .267/.353/.493. That is a .227 ISO. Furthermore, his BABIP is only .327 which seems to be around where he is likely to end up this season. I am very encouraged by his 8.2% BB rate, although his 25.9% K rate still needs to come down a little.
I hope doug has always been right and this kid just needed to mature a little bit before he takes off. I hope he keeps it up in Bakersfield, so that we can debate a mid-season call up to Pensacola before hopefully counting him in our discussions of future LFs.
