Delmon Young.....high OPS?

Postby DevilDriver » Thu Feb 23, 2006 12:59 am

I own DYoung in my OPS keeper league. Does anyone know if he is the type of player who will put up a high OPS compared to other players or is he the type of guy who has power but has a relatively low OPS (i.e. Carlos Lee)? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

He has a decent amount of speed to along with the power, so without looking at his minor leauge stats i think he'll be a good OPS guy. His patience will have a lot to do with his OBP obviously.

(waiting for somebody with a clue to post)
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

Here's his numbers from AA and AAA last season... He had fairly poor BB:K ratio, although his AA OPS was still pretty good while his AAA OPS was pretty mediocre.

Unless he develops patience over time, he looks like he won't be an OPS monster since he doesn't walk all that much.

Well Delmon should hit for an average around .300 in the majors. Like most know he isn't a walk machine, but he should take his far share ... 50-60 a year. Then you add in his SLG% and I defiantly see a .900 OPS. Not as high as Pujols/A-rod, but should hover around the mid .900's.
