Daily Graphing – Juan Uribe

After a solid season last year, it looked like Juan Uribe might be ready to breakout. Looking at his final year end numbers, it really looks like he took more of a step backwards. The graphs however tell a slightly different story.

BBK

His BB/K ratio has been on a steady rise since the middle of the season. I find a steady improvement more encouraging than a random spike (even though I haven’t done the research to prove it).

ISO

Looking at his Isolated Power (ISO), it’s quite clear he can still hit for power but he experienced several major power outages throughout the season.

Fortunately for the White Sox, the good play Juan Uribe exhibited towards the end of the season has continued well into the post season and I truly believe he’s one of the unsung heroes of their current run to the World Series title.
