The clip in question, I presume:

https://twitter.com/Astromets31/status/ ... 0977983488

Using the "LHH to 1B" speed scale found on the Fangraphs link below...

http://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/scouting ... ing-scale/

....I would say with confidence that, on this particular home-to-first run, Gimenez showed 70 speed or even slightly better. I've had to clock this about 30 times by now. Even accounting a couple hundredths of a second in either direction for human error I think it's unquestionable that he is, judging by FG's own 20/80 scale, faster than a 55 runner.

To get a measure slower than 4.00 I really had to push the start time early and/or stop time late, and even then I was getting ~4.05 readings. To get a 4.15 reading (55 speed) from this clip would be impossible for someone with working eyeballs.

As Metro said, this particular AB he was also heading toward first base before the completion of his swing. He definitely had momentum going down the line that you wouldn't see on a typical swing that puts the ball in play (unless Gimenez has some Ichiro in his game...).

That said, he still looks like a plus runner taking that into consideration.

So...does Alonso have a shot at being a legit MLB 1bman?


Yes.

He was a legit 2nd round pick and his performance has been outstanding

2nd in the FSL in OPS

Didn't see that Mazeika was promoted to Bingo. Cool.

Strange thing with Alonso are those error totals. Not that he's some stud 1b but he's not regarded as a bum over there. Really staggering totals.

The error totals are insane for sure. Wonder if he's Bucknering a lot of ground balls. At least that can be corrected.
