Free agent reliever Adam Ottavino: ‘I would strike Babe Ruth out every time’

USA Today

Free agent reliever Adam Ottavino certainly isn't selling himself short this winter.

In an interview on MLB.com's Statcast Podcast, Ottavino said that Babe Ruth would struggle in the modern game.

"I had an argument with a coach in Triple-A about Babe Ruth's effectiveness in today's game," Ottavino recalled. "I said, 'Babe Ruth, with that swing, swinging that bat, I got him hitting .140 with eight homers.'

"He was like, 'are you nuts? Babe Ruth would hit .370 with 60 homers,' and I'm like, 'I would strike Babe Ruth out every time.'
