Quite a contrast between Yuli's 60 games this year and his 57 games last year.

For the record, as of yesterday's games he's slashing .323/.392/.536.

BABIP:  .318

BB%: 11

SO%: 9

G/L/F: 38/17/44

So, effectively no change in G/L/F. He's hit 10 homers and driven in 47. 

One SB, one CS.

By the way, isn't there some evidence in the last sentence that Jeff Erickson has hired a bot to write Rotowire's comments?

Yuli Gurriel (1B) HOU - Jun. 10
https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=784168

Gurriel went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, a walk, two RBI and two runs scored in Thursday's 12-8 loss to Boston.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Gurriel opened the scoring with a short homer to right field off Boston starter Eduardo Rodriguez. In the fifth, Gurriel drew a bases loaded walk to force in a run, which tied the game at 4-4. The first baseman is now 15-for-26 (.577) during his seven-game hitting streak. He's slashing .335/.407/.545 with nine homers, 45 RBI, 30 runs scored and a stolen bases through 243 plate appearances overall.

I can keep him at $20, but won't.  If the birth certificate lies, it lies in an unfavorable direction, and 36 is not young.

Peter's comment for the Rotoman Special points out that Yuli's exit velocity in each of the last threes season has been exactly 89.3. His HR/FB is another story.

Second on the Long Fly Loser list: Yuli Gurriel with 40, one behind Mookie Betts. Forty balls that travelled at least 300 feet failed to clear the fence. Seven times he hit the ball between 360 and 380 feet and six fell short. Of the six balls that he hit between 380 and 400 feet, one reached the seats. Unlike Mookie, when he hit the ball at least 400 feet, he wasn't disappointed: 3-for-3.
