  1. Huh. MLBDepthCharts lists Jordan Schafer as the starter in Houston over Jason Bourgeois.

  2. Steals per plate appearance?

    How about steals per times on base? I don’t think Nunez had a very high OBP, which would make his steal potential even greater I would think.

  3. Bourgeois isn’t a starter. He’d need an injury to take over as a starter and the Stros didn’t like what they saw from him in everyday ABs after they shipped Bourn away.

  4. Nuñez reached base 104 times last season. If you take out the 4 pinch running steals, this equates to 18 steals in 104 times base was reached. This is a 17.31% steals/times on base.

    If you trust Bill James’ projections, you can guess Nuñez will reach base 130 times. This would give him 22.5 steals, so call it 23. Then assume he’ll be able to swipe 4 as a pinch runner again, and you’re talking close to 30 steals.

    Good analysis Mike. I think his ability to steal could be his ticket to succeeding Jeter in a few years, assuming he’s able to fix his defense. Seems to have the tools to do so, plenty of range and he usually fields the ball reasonably well, it’s just the freaking cannon arm goes wild.
