By now you know a few things about new Rays 3B/OF Yoshitomo Tsutsugo, who was formally introduced via press conference yesterday.
If you’ve been on Twitter, you may have seen a clip or two showcasing his unbelievable strength and power:
You may have also seen some off-base responses. Like this one:
That was an 89 mph fast ball right down Broadway. Let's not get too carried away yet.— Matt McGuire (@mmcgu) December 13, 2019
It may have been a mediocre pitch, but Tsutsugo did exactly what a professional should do—hit it out of the stadium.
Out. of. the. stadium.
Some people still weren’t impressed:

I mean, the Rays are looking for a right handed power bat, aren’t they?
There were a few people who had nice things to say, though:
That’s...some serious bat speed.— Sike Mouther (@SikeMouther) December 15, 2019
