Tiny sample, but so far this year Davis' Exit Velocity, Launch Angle, and Barrel % are all in his 2015-2016 range:

 His exit velocity wasn't particularly great for power hitters in those years, imo, but I'm not well versed on this either. Where's the power this year?  Does this infer he's not as strong? Just asking.

Thanks for taking care of that.

No problem.  It's so obvious... don't know why I didn't think of it before! 😉

The red highlight indicates above average for MLB. So the exit velocity seems low but it's an average of all balls struck. So ML average looks to be around 88 or so.

I was the first to like your post.  Well done sir!  If this works, you become Jobu.

It HAS to work.  I think all of us are ready to get this over with!

We sure have run the gamut on all of the dumb,  ridiculous "theories" that only the sharpest of fans could provide that is for sure. Steroids! (always been huge power guy, still is) Adderall! (I guess we have some young fans that don't realize he had one of his best years AFTER that situation was long over with might want to check the 2015 .923 OPS with 47 HR and 5.3 WAR, 2nd best of his career stat line. Not on adderall) He doesn't care anymore after the contract! (now we can read minds, a tried and true method of getting to the bottom of anything)

Maybe he just sucks now and there aren't any "conspiracies" involved. Ever think of that? Does it even matter?

Has the Elias "intervention" begun? The Edgertronic is set up.

 

I see he is not in the starting line up tonight.  I think it would be a good idea to give him a couple weeks off to work with this technology and the coaches to figure some things out.

You meant months right?

The longer they give him the longer he's here, so be careful what you wish for.

Yeah, I think we'll start to see him less and less in the lineup, but I think he'll still play as he works on things. None of it is likely to help, but they have to try. They can't simply leave it to his offseason workout approach and some Don Long advice. They need to get in there and see if there's anything to salvage. There probably isn't. If there is, it would take - as I've been saying for a long time - a complete teardown of his mechanics and rebuild of what kind of hitter he even is. Maybe you take the power out of his game completely. I don't know.

I still think if you're not going to release him you should make him a relief pitcher. But that's not going to happen.

Out of sight out of mind.

I'll just pretend they got a rule V guy stashed in the bullpen that never gets into games.
