Interesting Offensive Percentages

I was reading Baseball Reference today and ran across some interesting stats about the offense.

39.8 % of Carlos Pena’s AB’s end up in a homerun or strikeout, with 30.4% of those being K’s.

28.6% of B.J. Upton’s AB’s end up in a strikeout.

Evan Longoria averages 11.2 AB’s for every homerun while Pena hits one every 9.2.

29% of fly balls that Dioner Navarro hits are only in the infield.

77% of balls hit by Willy Aybar are in play.

33% of pitches looked at but not swung at for Pat Burrell are strikes

50% of Gabe Gross’s strikeouts are looking.

100% of Gabe’s are useless.

Basically B.J and Pena K way to much. Navarro gets under everything. Aybar is one of our better contact hitters. And the Gabe’s are useless. This team is going to need more productive at-bats if the offense is going to be more consistent.

    Your stats and comments on Gabe Gross are true. The team is suffering a terrible lack of production from that position. I hope we can fix this problem soon!
