While Yasmani Grandal had slightly better numbers in Los Angeles than away from Los Angeles, he only hit 11 of his 24 homers in his home stadium. He’s playing half his games in Miller Park in 2019, and could see a boost in overall production just from switching to a more hitter-friendly environment.
In his career, Grandal has a .296/.367/.556 slash line with four homers in Miller Park. He’s only played 16 games and managed 60 total plate appearances, but a friendlier home park could help Grandal in 2019.
Grandal is also technically in a ‘contract year’ in 2019. If he wants to secure the multi-year deal that he was looking for after the 2018 season, he’ll need to outproduce his 2018 numbers.
Between the move to Miller Park and the contract year, Grandal needs a true break out to secure his future. He’s been over 20 homers in each of the last three seasons, but it wouldn’t come as a shock to see him finally crack 30 in 2019. He’s also settled into a seasonal OPS in the range of .756 to .816 in the last four seasons.
