Jorge Soler has three homers on his brief Major League career, and he hit two of ’em last night. So far, Soler doesn’t hit cheapies.
Hit hits monster bombs:
The first one was crushed to dead center, which makes me search for a way to describe the second one that is slightly stronger than “crushed.” Blasted? Hammered? Exploded? Solered?
The first homer went 420 feet, according to ESPN, and the second went 438 feet. That’s 858 total feet of homers last night for Soler, who is now hitting .636/.667/1.545 through three games. Some small sample size fun:
- Soler’s OPS is 2.212. His wRC+ is 511. His wOBA is .920. His LOL is robust.
- Through three games, Soler has totaled 0.6 WAR. Projected over 162 games, he’s a 32.4 WAR player. Like I said: LOL.
- Soler’s BABIP is currently .800, which might come down a little.
- His 25% strikeout rate and 8.3% walk rate might actually each trend a little more positively in the future.
