Some More Stuff Abount Javy

Postby Duke Silver » Fri Jun 10, 2016 1:19 am

I wrote a little more about Javy, mainly about him putting too many balls in play on pitches out of the zone.

Fabulous, as always. I tweeted it out there. Hopefully we can get some traffic.

I raised a question in the comments:

An interesting question for this analysis on Javy...

He actually attempts to bunt reasonably often. How is that impacting both his BABIP and his power numbers on balls in play. I haven't seen a way to isolate that in statcast yet other than to assume that anything in play that doesn't travel at least 60 feet or so is a bunt.

So...how long until we lose Duke to Fangraphs or some other baseball publication/site?

Not sure I have specifically said it, so love love love the articles, Duke.

Apparently Javy is leading the league by a wide margin with the lowest percentage of balls in play coming on pitches in the zone.
