Willians Astudillo's career strikeout rate is 2.8%.

MLB's lowest/highest strikeout rates since 2010:
6.4% Juan Pierre
7.9% Placido Polanco
...
36.3% Miguel Sano
37.7% Joey Gallo

Astudillo has struck out less than half as often as the hardest-to-whiff hitter of the whole decade.

Willians Astudillo is projected to have a higher WAR/600 PA than Trevor Story, Anthony Rizzo, Lorenzo Cain, George Springer, and Matt Carpenter among others in 2020 (ZiPS)

Someone: “Who’s the best player in baseball?”

Twins fans: “Willians Astudillo.”

Someone: “haha. Right. But seriously, who do you think?”

Twins fans, with a straight face, now a little annoyed: “Willians Astudillo.”

hahaha, he swung out of his shoes on a 3-0 pitch that would have been ball 4, but finally gave in and let Alvarez walk him.
