Young prospects get talked up so much during the early part of their careers that we sometimes forget how young they actually are. A perfect example of this is Chicago White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia — he’s produced underwhelming results in the big leagues since debuting in 2012, but still won’t even turn 26 years old until June.
Garcia is off to a hot start, which is evidenced by his .407/.448/.630 line through 29 plate appearances, but he’s not letting go of his reputation for being a bit of a free swinger.
Despite boasting a swing rate above 50% for his entire career, we have seen an encouraging trend going on with his O-Swing% since 2015, which is one of the things I talked about with Garion Thorne on FNTSY Sports Network’s The Rotation.
