Re the posts by Jeff and Syd under Segura... this is precisely why I'm seriously considering keeping Yuli at 20.

The uppercuts that are now in vogue (let's call the emphasis on "improved launch angel" what it is) have led to batting average scarcity.

Yuli's swing might even have a slight downward path. Which generates back spin. Which generates plenty of home runs with any kind of luck.

If he doesn't get any, he's still going to help my batting average.
