During his time with the Cubs, Jason Heyward has never looked as good at the dish than right now. Three claps for him. *clap, clap, clap*
Heyward’s overall wOBA going into Friday night in Cincy is .334, and his June wOBA of .370 (72 plate appearances) is even better. Is this real life?
And J-Hey’s success isn’t really a product of luck because his xwOBA (expected wOBA) during June is .380. That comes from an average exit velocity this month of ~90 MPH, which is indicative of an extremely encouraging overall batted-ball profile. Just look at all his barrels (4) and hard-hit contact in the image below.
