Watkins has some swag. I am becoming a fan of this kid. Wouldn’t at all be opposed to him earning a spot next season. Starting to put together a legit body of work here.
One interesting thing though, a lot of his ratios are fairly in line with last year. Fly balls (although 6% more ground balls), K’s, BB’s… except one, HR/FB - down by more than half. Just makes me wonder how much the wall could be benefiting kids like Watkins, Kremer and maybe even Wells though I think he’s legit regardless of Camden Yards. His FIP is a half run higher than his ERA. Solid contributor at a cheap price.
I’m not giving him away in the off-season just because his name is Spenser Watkins.
Holt and th epitching coaches have been outstanding
