I've run across a number of players, usually Milb veterans, who have off the charts power and great eyes, but close to zero contact and underwhelming splits. Here is one example, but there are a few of these guys in every league:
My question is, can a player like this (0 contact, 50/50 splits, 90+ power and eye) be a good hitter? Do you have any examples of guys like that succeeding? This seems to be a player type that slips through the cracks and an opportunity for value.
I'm given the guy above a 2 month tryout because that team is going nowhere this season. In a neutral park, could I expect him to put up a .230/.330/.450 line? Or is that optimistic?
