In Who Will be Next Season’s Unsung Hero for the Diamondbacks, I wrote that one of Pavin Smith’s strengths is power hitting. Later, I wondered was I wrong?

Heath Klein’s comment inspired me to investigate. His comment began as follows (before he added support for his opinion):

“Nice write up Kilo, the only area in which I would disagree is Pavin Smith as a power hitter. Historically he’s had the most success when he’s going with what the pitcher gives him and chasing very little.” — Heath Klein
