MLB Prospect Statistical Analysis (Stats Don't Lie) - Good Hitters

In this edition of Stats Don't Lie, I wanted to see who were the best hitters this season. When I run this report, batting average is not really a factor. The goal is to looks for hitters with high walk rates, good strikeout rates and power potential. Check out the list below.



Name              2B              3B               HR          BB%          K%            ISO         BB/K
Royce Lewis 29 0 10 8.50% 15.10% 0.161 0.56
Isaac Paredes 20 2 13 10.10% 15.10% 0.185 0.67
Jeter Downs 22 2 11 9.60% 19.70% 0.154 0.49
Gavin Lux 23 7 12 10.40% 16.90% 0.199 0.61
Carter Kieboom 24 0 13 10.30% 19.60% 0.162 0.52
Jahmai Jones 14 7 9 12.80% 19.80% 0.141 0.64
Seth Beer 11 0 7 10.80% 15.40% 0.194 0.70
Daulton Varsho 10 4 9 9.60% 18.50% 0.196 0.52
Kyle Tucker 24 2 14 9.70% 19.20% 0.208 0.51
Ke'Bryan Hayes 27 6 6 10.90% 15.70% 0.167 0.69
Bryan Reynolds 15 1 5 12.10% 19.40% 0.152 0.63

















* Min of 175 Plate Appearances 












* Age range was 23 or younger

















Takeaways







Ke'Bryan Hayes - Still a bargain bin buy. Scouts are skeptical that he can develop power.







Issac Paredes, Daulton Varsho & Carter Kieboom - All need a Chrome auto. 









Jeter Downs - Still affordable and a strong buy.







Gavin Lux - Great bounceback season. 








Jahmai Jones - Still a strong buy for me. 








Seth Beer - I hope he is in 2018 Bowman Draft.
