Jabari Blash hits first Major League home run

The San Diego Padres are still trying to figure out if Jabari Blash can play well enough consistently enough to make a career out of being a big-league ballplayer, but during today’s game they saw the tantalizing power that has them convinced he could be just what they’re looking for in Right Field.

Despite a low batting average, Blash offers above-average power, average fielding in the outfield, and an above-average walk rate. We’ll see if that will be enough throughout the rest of this season to earn him a spot on the 2017 Padres.

Blash finished today’s game 1-for-3 with a walk and a strikeout to go with his solo home run.
