Yermin Mercedes (DH) CHI-A - Jun. 25
https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=787587

Mercedes will sit Friday against the Mariners.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Mercedes finds himself on the bench for the third game in a row. The first two can be explained by the fact that the White Sox were playing in a National League park, but it's possible his playing time is set to slip even when a designated hitter is available. Mercedes hit .364/.414/.557 through his first 40 games, but the wheels have fallen off since then. In his last 26 contests, he's hitting a miserable .122/.184/.167.

Extension or no, he's hit some very long homers. And with two strikes he battles.

By contrast, as Joel Sherman writes,

“Swings are bigger, efforts are bigger, deliveries are more explosive,” an AL executive said “Not a lot of guys play the game easy any more. You better be monitoring every swing, for example, your guys take because they are taking so many at full force even in batting practice."

He has short arms so he won't hit for massive power bc he doesn't have the extension to get the elite Launch angle.

Posted here because Yermin is the opposite of what Joel Sherman describes: he does not swing for the seats on every pitch and he clearly doesn't spend all his spare time working out.

A match-up of heavyweights.

Yermin Mercedes (DH) CHI-A - May. 17

Mercedes went 3-for-6 with a double, a home run, two runs scored and three RBI in Monday's 16-4 rout of the Twins.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: He capped off a wild night for the White Sox offense by taking position player Willians Astudillo deep in the ninth inning.

Anecdotally (watching condensed games), I would say Yermin leads the league in bloop hits and tape-measure homers.

The second longest by a White Sox in Statcast history. Gracious.
