Franmil took a 1-0 change up from the Washington Nationals Gio Gonzalez 398 feet over the right field wall. According to Statcast, the ball had an exit velocity of 108 mph. So yeah, there's no doubting Franmil has the power for the big leagues.
"It was a great swing for him," Padres manager Andy Green said. "I know it's a big moment, and I know he doesn't want to have it happen in a game we lose like this, but the kid's first Major League home run is a lot of fun for him."
Franmil had 14 home runs with Chihuahuas this year, which was tied for the most in the Minors with Nationals Juan Soto, who also hit his first Major League homer run last night.
