Vinnie Pasquantino: Waiver Wire Pickups (Week 18)

BALLING MOVEMENT: Add more than 12 team leagues

REGISTERED IN: 14% of leagues

ANALYSIS: 24-year-old first baseman Vinnie Pasquantino entered the Kansas City Royals organization via the 11th round of the 2019 MLB Draft from Old Dominion University – far from the definition of “fanfare”. However, after just three seasons and 898 ABs in the minor leagues (no season in 2020), Pasquantino has already arrived with the big league Royals, posting eight XBHs (three HRs, five doubles) and a .227/ so far. 315 /.336 slash in his first 128 AB.

In his total time in the minor league, Vinnie has racked up 56 homers and a .293/.382/.574 slash, and this season in 250 AB for Triple-A Omaha he has 18 homers, three interceptions in four tries and one . 280/.372/.576 slash. Even with MLB’s slow start, the metrics are all positive. He only hits at 15.8% while walking at 10.3%, he has an average outgoing speed of 91.6 with a hard hit rate of 49.5% and a fly ball rate above the average, but its ISO is only 0.109 with a . 252 BABIP. With his plate discipline and power measurements looking set for success, the tide should turn for Vinnie Pasquantino very soon.
