Toronto Blue Jays: Statistical Position-by-Position Analysis

As we approach the middle of the season and the All-Star break, I thought it would be a good idea to see how our position players stack up against the rest of the league.

To be eligible for the batting average and on-base percentage category, a player must have 150 at-bats or more up to this point in the season.

OBP: .303 (16th)
BA: .266 (8th)

RBI: 36 (32nd)
R: 46 (T-14th)

R: 38 (T-33rd)
OPS: .744 (53rd)
Average Rank: 37.1

 

Designated Hitters: Out of 11


Adam Lind

AB: 290 (1st)
OBP: .385 (2nd)
BA: .307 (2nd)
HR: 15 (1st)
RBI: 52 (1st)
R: 45 (1st)
OPS: .930 (2nd)
Average Rank: 1.4

As you can see from these numbers, nearly every hitter on our team is somewhat close to the top and pulling there weight except for the outfielders.

The numbers look a lot better this year then last, and I can't help but wonder what would happen if we combined this year's hitting with last year's pitching. One can only dream.
