See Royce Lewis.

If I had just typed LEWIS into the Google doc in Round 14, all is forgiven. He's mine.

When Lewis came off the field after a playoff game in Tulsa in Double-A, he found a ball in his locker saying, “Learn to swim.”

That stung. I asked an African-American teammate if he knew where the ball came from, and he had no idea. I asked some of my white teammates, and they said they had no idea. I threw that ball in the trash and never brought it up again.

Naturally it made me suspicious. Not many people had access to that locker room. Was it a teammate? Was it a clubhouse worker? I think it just puts you on guard socially to where you can’t just open up to everybody the way you would think. You realize that everybody is not just going to look out for you the way you might think they would.

The Fangraphs spray chart shows three of his homers going to center or right as well as the majority of his fly balls hit to the outfield. His ground balls go to the left side, showing the effects of an uppercut.

Kyle Lewis (OF) SEA - Apr. 14

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=740695

Lewis projects as the everyday right fielder this coming regular season despite having hit just .172 (5-for-29) over 11 Cactus League games before spring training was suspended, Brent Stecker of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Stecker notes that general manager Jerry Dipoto identifies the slugger's occasional "empty swings" as a byproduct of an opposite-field approach to hitting which requires Lewis to often allow the ball to go deeper into the zone than a pull hitter does. The Mariners are willing to accept such a tradeoff so long as Lewis is able to generate a similar caliber of long-ball production to that of his first big-league cup of coffee in 2019. Following his September promotion, the 24-year-old became the second player in MLB history to homer in each of his first three games and ultimately left the yard once every 12.5 plate appearances across 18 contests overall. Signs of his prodigious power were evident once again this spring despite the overall lack of success, as three of Lewis' five hits during Cactus League play were home runs.

It will be interesting to see who gets more playing time this season, Lewis or Jake Fraley. I think Fraley has the better hit tool, so I'm going to attempt to stash him as a reserve pick in my Mixed Drafts.

Hit four homers in his first six games and struck out four times in his seventh.
