Predict Alvarez’s Triple Slash in June

New, 24 comments

Come have some fun and give your early predictions.

It’s June 9th, officially Alvarez day for the huddled masses. The time has come. He’s here hopefully kicking off a long illustrious Hall of Fame career. Okay, okay, fine I said yesterday we should all be careful about getting our expectations up to high in yesterday’s article about Alvarez being called up.

Now let’s have some fun with it. Here are the predictions from some of the top sites based on their algorithms which were updated last night (albeit their predictions are not for June).

Steamer -.257/.332/.476, 11 HR, 32 RBI, 25.7% K%, 9.7% BB% in 225 PA (56 games) - 114 wRC+

Depth Charts - .257/.332/476 12 HR, 34 RBI 25.7% K%, 9.7% BB% 241 PA (57 games) -114 wRC+

THE BAT - .269/.340/.494 9 HR, 27 RBI, 24.8% K%, 9.3% BB% 179 PA (40 games) - 122 wRC+

Here are the remaining competitors for the month:

Orioles (1 game) - 5.56 ERA, 5.11 xFIP, 7.73 K/9, 3.68 BB/9

Brewers (2 games) - 4.54 ERA, 4.17 xFIP, 9.27 K/9, 3.44 BB/9

Blue Jays (3 games) - 4.54 ERA, 4.62 xFIP, 8.43 K/9, 3.87 BB/9

Reds (3 games) - 3.66 ERA, 3.80 xFIP, 9.81 K/9, 3.24 BB/9

Yankees (4 games) - 3.90 ERA, 4.15 xFIP, 9.45 K/9, 3.08 BB/9

Pirates (3 games) - 5.02 ERA, 4.62 xFIP, 8.82 K/9, 3.73 BB/9

Mariners (3 games) - 5.34 ERA, 4.89 xFIP, 7.70 K/9, 3.40 BB/9

Total games 20 games. Only 2 of the teams and 7 of the games (35%) are against above average pitching staffs.

Let’s hope he get’s off to an incredible start and we don’t have to hear for the shouts to DFA him if he goes 0-10 or something.
