In 150 PA Swanson has turned in a slash line of .278/.387/.381. Walk rate of 15.3, strikeout rate of 18.0, ISO of .103, BABIP of .350.

In 105 PA Camargo has turned in a slash line of .283/.324/.465. Walk rate of 5.7, strikeout rate of 18.8, ISO of .183, BABIP of .333.

The samples are not large, but in many ways I think these numbers are more representative of what we can expect from them going forward than their first half or full season numbers.

The most encouraging thing about both is the decline in the strikeout rate to below 20%. Swanson's strikeout rate in the first half was 23.0% and Camargo's was 21.6. I've felt all along that getting the strikeout rate below 20% was the key for both of them if they were to develop into average or above average major league regulars.

The other numbers confirm that a bigger part of Swanson's value as a hitter will come from his on base skills. The walk rate is exaggerated a bit by hitting 8th, but even when he moves away from the 8th spot I expect it to remain fairly high.

Camargo on the other hand has continued to develop more power. Strikeout rate below 20%, ISO of about .180 and above average defense at third is a formula for a pretty good ballplayer.
