There are a lot of pull-heavy power hitters nowadays in Major League Baseball. But, which batters tended to pull the most during the 2023 campaign? For those interested, these are the MLB hitters with the highest and lowest pull rates in 2023.
Hitters with the highest pull rates in 2023
Here’s an overview of the MLB hitters with the highest pull rates in 2023 among qualified hitters:
|Daulton Varsho||Blue Jays||48.0%|
There are a few interesting takeaways from this collection of hitters. One, all of the ten hitters with the highest pull rates had at least 20 home runs. And, virtually all have the names on this list have at least above-average power.
However, another interesting note is not all of these players have significantly high strikeout rates. In fact, four of the ten had K% rates less than 20%.
Hitters with the lowest pull rates in 2023
Now, here’s a look at the hitters with the lowest pull rates in MLB this season:
|Bo Bichette||Blue Jays||25.8%|
Unsurprisingly, this part of this list is filled with strong contact hitters, particularly names like Luis Arraez and Bo Bichette who excel at the inside-out and can go the other way with ease.
Bichette, we should note, led all of MLB in opposite field rate at 40.5%.
