Correa’s homer spray chart shows he’ll be fine at Oracle Park originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

Carlos Correa will be just fine hitting home runs at Oracle Park for the next 13 seasons.

After agreeing to a 13-year, $350 million contract with the Giants, some began to wonder how Correa’s power would play in his new home ballpark, which happens to be one of the unfriendliest to hitters in baseball.

Yeah, that’ll play.

Only eight of Correa’s 155 career home runs would not have gone out at Oracle Park.

Even better, per MLB’s Sarah Langs, three of Correa’s batted balls last season alone with the Minnesota Twins, which were not home runs, actually would have gone out at Oracle Park.

Although Correa has a career slash line of .158/.238/.211 in only five career games at Oracle Park, the very small sample size should not be concerning.

For the most part, Correa should be able to maintain his home run pace in San Francisco, and as one of MLB’s best line-to-line hitters, also should enjoy the spacious confines of Oracle Park.
