Devers is swinging at 45.7 percent of the pitches outside the zone. 

Seems like a lot. Does that bother him?

He told Julian McWilliams of the Boston Globe, "I'm an aggressive hitter. Even last year, I was swinging at things outside the zone a lot, too, only difference was that I was actually getting hits."

Falls under a different category in the story at The Athletic (Moreland thread).

Hard to get enough return

Rafael Devers, 3B – He’s already committed seven errors, his batting average is below .200 and the advanced metrics say he’s played below replacement level. Probably not the best time to get maximum value for such a young talent.

His Avg Exit Velocity: 92.5. The MLB Avg: 88.7

His Avg Launch Angle: 10.6. The MLB Avg: 12.7.

Presto -- all those doubles are explained.
