These NL West hitters have elite batting eyes |

Nolan Arenado is the choice for the Rockies. Did you know that Nolan is actually great at hitting home runs and extra-base hits on pitches outside of the strike zone?

Diamondbacks: Ketel Marte
Dodgers: Mookie Betts (does he even count, though?)
Giants: Brandon Belt
Padres: Tommy Pham

I miss watching Nolan hit... and catch. And do all the amazing things.
