Round Four, Match Three

Preston Tucker, OF

And now we have Chris’ boy! He’s never had a below average wOBA and he’s never had an OBP under .348. He draws walks at a good clip and until AAA, his highest strikeout rate was 17.2%. It went up to 23.9% at AAA which is definitely a cause for concern moving forward considering he also posted his lowest ISO of his career. If those rates improve closer to his career rates, it’s possible he could be an average corner OFer. -- Subber10

VS.

Carlos Correa, SS

O Captain! My Captain! your fearful trip is done;
Your body has weather’d every rack, the promotion you sought is won;
The Majors are near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting,
While follow eyes your steady keel, an effulgent future resulting

O Captain! My Captain! rise up and hear the roar
Rise up - for you the flag is flung - ‘tis you the crowd adores;
For you bouquets and ribbon’d wreaths - for you the throng yearning;
For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning

Exult, O fans, and ring, O bells!
There is nothing left to fear
Rejoice with cries and passionate yells
"O Captain! Our Captain is here!"
