Profile: D.J. saw a dramatic reduction in SwStrk% From 6.4% to 4.1%, fueled by a significant reduction in Swing% and an even larger increase in Contact%, both in and out of the zone. As a result, his K% plunged to a career low 12.6%. DJ finished 3rd in SwStrk%, 4th in Contact%, 7th in Z-Contact%, and 11th in O-Contact% among qualified batters, closely competing with Joe Panik and Daniel Murphy in each category among other second basemen. The extent of the improvements on each of these categories may not be sustainable over the long haul, but DJ has been a consistently great contact hitter for his career, and playing half of his games in the spacious Coors Field has only helped. LeMahieu does not have much home run power, and this is, at least in part, due to his preference to avoid pulling the ball. His hard struck balls are especially push happy, having hit roughly 75% of his hardest hit balls to the opposite field in 2016, even though, among these hard hits, his pulled balls tended to have a higher Exit Velocity (97 versus 94 mph) and 45 extra feet on fly ball distance (391 vs 347 feet). This hints towards a certain unlocked potential for home run power in the future. (Andrew Perpetua)

The Quick Opinion: LeMahieu has had two career seasons in a row, and while his counting stats haven’t completely caught up, everything is trending in the right direction. Regression is to be expected, nobody can sustain a .388 BABIP, but he still holds the potential to hit for more power.
