Spring Training Stat Hunt

Ezequiel

Some interesting, meaningless numbers:

** Lou Marson (CLE), 3 for 14, all singles, with 8 walks. SLG .214. OBP .500.

** 8 times on base for Ezequiel Carrera (CLE) (5 hits, 4 walks, but one of those hits was a home run)… 8 stolen bases. 1 caught stealing. He is making quite an effort to run. (Last spring, 5 times on base, 2 steals.)

** BJ Upton leads the majors, caught stealing three times. But he’s also batting .429, so not too much to complain about.

** There have been two intentional walks so far this spring. Jason Jaramillo (HOU) and Xavier Paul (CIN).

** Darin Ruf (PHI) has been hit by four pitches. No one else has been hit more than twice. Do people not like Darin Ruf?

** Hector Noesi (SEA) has walked 8 batters in less than 5 innings. He has also given up 11 runs (9 earned), including 2 homers. Worst pitching stats of the spring? Sam Demel (HOU) probably doesn’t think so. 11 runs in 2 1/3 innings, 4 home runs, 3 walks and a strikeout. Batters hitting .556 against him. Jordan Lyles (HOU) also has a case. 18 runs and 26 hits in 8 innings (.553 AVG against him). And Pedro Villarreal (CIN). 14 runs and 19 hits in 4 2/3 innings. Batters hitting .633.

** Jimmy Henderson (MIL) has allowed 6 stolen bases (leading the majors) in just 3 1/3 innings On the other hand, David Huff (CLE) has picked off 3 baserunners in 10 innings.

Cole Hamels understands why Ruf is getting hit.

Ruf must be taking pointers from Utley.
