About Last Night: Has Mallex Smith changed his swing? Yes.

That’s it.

That’s the whole article.

I’ve been informed that that is not allowed to be the whole article. OK, it’s interesting that Mallex hit a dinger yesterday because about one month ago Mallex Smith was in Triple-A because he couldn’t hit anything. As Kate noted in last night’s recap, before being sent down Mallex’s wRC+ was 42. Since being recalled? 108.

Those are different numbers so let’s see if we can find out what has made the numbers different.

Here’s a chart of Mallex’s wOBA by game.

That crater matches the eye test, yes.
