Who has the quickest most compact swing at each position?
Larkin who also rips has a quick swing, Mondesi, and Simmons are the ones that come to my head now. I’m not sure about positions but it seems like a lot of shortstops have compact swings
Mondesi and Moncada
Mondesi is definitely up there. I am generally late on a lot of pitches but he pulls a lot of balls into the gap or over the wall. I was really looking forward to the return of 99 Rollins, as his bat was just as quick for me when he was last in the game, but since Mondesi is leading my DD team in hitting, I’m not sure I need Jimmy. It makes it easier to go for Maddux instead in the 6th inning program.
Grandal, Jackie Robinson.
Grandal. CarGo. Blackmon. Mondesi.
Nobody talks about him but mcgriff has a really quick bat. Seems like most of the quick swings are from the right side where lefties tend to be smooth but mcgriff is extremely quick.
I forgot about Grandal lol, probably the quickest but doesn’t rip as much as Larkin does
Mondesi and Biggio
Pablo, Cutch, Blackmon are all quick swings, and fun to use.
Lou Brock Sheff Larkin who rips
Kemp is a monster
Ty Cobb has a really quick bat.
Betts, Eric Davis
That 90 Honus Wagner.
It is anybody with that choppy 2h swing that looks like they just flip their wrists ala Mondesi, Suarez, Blackmon, Lofton etc.....some seem even quicker because they have efficient strides like Mondesi.
Uuuuuhhhh can’t believe nobody has mentioned Jacoby Ellsbury
Mondesi, McCutchen, Chuck Nasty, Larkin all have quick swings who have done well for me.
Ellesbury and thames
