Notes 
 While it's very early, Guerrero's average launch angle is much higher than it's been in the past so far. The 22-year-old is swinging and missing at a decent clip, but he isn't striking out all that much. Combine that with strong plate discipline and a 99th percentile max exit velocity, and we could be witnessing the full breakout.
