His totals? In five games, 19 plate appearances, and 16 at-bats, he has 16 strikeouts (and three walks). He’s also stolen a base, been caught stealing once, and thrown someone out from center. We don’t know whether his strikeouts were looking or swinging, or whether he hit any foul balls, or whether the walks were a sign that he’s patient or a sign that GCL pitchers can’t throw strikes. What we do know is that he hasn’t yet put a ball in play. "I know it’s a game of failure and it is a hard game to adjust to," Green-Thompson said on the day he was drafted. He knows that even better now.
