Chris Young's Power Should Translate To Citi Field




Above are scatter charts showing all of Chris Young's home runs over the past three seasons.  What you'll find is that every single one (42 for 42) will have been out at Citi Field.  Going back a little farther from 2009 to Present, that number is actually 87 of 88.

This shouldn't necessarily ease the blow of the news that Sandy Alderson spent what could amount to a quarter of the team's offseason budget on Young, but its nice to see his should be capable of hitting the ball out of cavernous Citi Field.  His power is dead pull, so I'd advise those on the party deck next summer to pay attention when Young enters the box.

All charts were obtained using ESPN's Hit Tracker.
