Re: The dawn of Yorman Rodriguez?
Last year in 90 AB's at Bakersfield, he had 39 K's: K's as a function of AB's=.403
This year in 240 AB's at Bakersfield, he has 73 K's: K's as a function of AB's=.300
Last year: 39K's to 3 W's, or 13:1. This year: 73 to 20 or 3.65: 1.
I consider that solid progress, especially for a player who is still quite young for the level. He needs to do more and whether he can is still the question, but he seems to be trending well IMO.
Good numbers here. Also a good sign that he is rebounding strongly from a poor start in Bakersfield. His resurgence has accompanied a move to the top of the order, hitting first or second.
