I would be willing to bet his two best seasons exceed Lamb's two best seasons.
    While I agree Riley is not a finished product, max exit velocities are a lot like FA velocity and typically decline immediately.

    Riley will almost certainly improve his plate discipline numbers, and by extension is K and BB numbers. I wouldn't bet on him improving his exit velocities much, if at all.

    I could definitely see Riley streak his way to a 3 win season that's better than anything Lamb has done (his first 50 PAs may have positioned him to beat 2.5 wins this year), but that doesn't make him appreciably better.

    That first AB vs Archer was awful. Swung at the first 5 pitches or more and watched a center cut FB (low) for strike 3.

    Still looks like the 250/300/500 hitter I thought he was.

    Still curious on the d at third.

    He had shown the ability at each level to adjust and grow. I like how he talks the game. I think there could be more obp and maybe a tad more avg.

    Duvall might be able to help us more at this point.

    We identified a RHH OFer as a need before the season started. They tried to fill that spot with Duvall, Camargo and now Riley.

    RHH OFer might be on the shopping list at the deadline just below a BP arm.

    Sure. My point was more aimed toward this season. It's really hard to predict how players will adjust and improve over the years, especially very young players like Riley. But I feel pretty confident the K rate and BB rate aren't likely to see dramatic improvement over the rest of 2019. Maybe 2-3 percent at most.

    I'd like to see Duvall first. May be he's figured it out in Gwinnett. If he can be the player he was pre-2018, he'd be a huge boost.

    Ozuna, Domingo Santana, Soler are viable targets.

    Another guy we talked about, Frazier, has murdered RHs.

    I think we need to see if Riley can adjust to the league adjusting and then get a better look at our own internal OF options before looking outside the organization. We’re going to be feeling a roster crunch as is when Ender comes back.

    Its almost like our concerns in the underlying statistics are coming true... imagine that. Now let's how quick/if he can adjust.

    May vs June numbers:

    BABIP: .452 vs .200
    ISO: .390 vs .167
    K Rate: 33.3 vs 34.1
    BB Rate: 4.8 vs 2.3

    Regression came fast. What the BABIP gods giveth the BABIP gods taketh away.

    I would consider resting him but not because of those numbers. I liked his approach his last two at bats. The ball got deeper to him and he swung at pitches and not at guesses. I would like him continue to adjust and work through this. That said we all know how I feel about rest and would not hesitate sitting him to get a bench guy in the game.

    I personally thought he was going to hit .400 with 77 homers. But I might need to rethink that projection.
