Mikey Stransky, Mikey, Mikey Stravinsky discussed on The Leadoff Spot


Next month. Or three weeks away from Mikey Stravinsky's 30th birthday and the second year outfielder. Has come out of absolutely nowhere and I we when I mean nowhere. I mean buoy Maryland because he was stuck with a Bowie Baysox for five seasons. In the Baltimore Orioles organization before a minor trade last year brought him to San Francisco as a Triple A depth outfielder. He was supposed to be a part time player for the Sacramento River Cats. He hits his way into a full time roll by May. The Giants can no longer deny that the Mikey's Chomsky that the Orioles saw was a different player than Mikey Stransky that they saw in the Pacific Coast League. So they bring him up and all he does is lead the team in home runs with 21 racks up 2.8 war, the highest of any position player with the club and you're thinking, OK? He did that in his age 28 29 season. It's probably unrealistic to expect Mikey Stransky to do that again. This is a guy who had never hit more than 15 home runs in a minor league season with the Baltimore Orioles over seven years in the minors. He comes to San Francisco is 21. With the juice ball. You're not thinking that's repeatable. But all he has done during the first week of the regular season. Is barrel of baseballs. Set the tone for the drives line up at the top of the order. And give quality at bat after quality of back Mikey's terms. He's O PS soaring above 1300 by reaching base four times on Thursday evening and Oracle Park. Not only is he slugging the ball, he tripled in two triples alley..

Coming up next
