Get ’em Over, Get ’em In – Individuals

Breaking down the stuff I posted on Monday a little bit further.

ADVANCING RUNNERS

Coming up with a runner on first or second and nobody out, hitters are looking to advance the runner into scoring position or to third base, where any number of outcomes will bring them home.  That is of course assuming the hitter doesn’t just drive in the baserunner themselves.

Through the first 27 games, the players with the most opportunities of this kind (runner on 1st or 2nd, 0 out) are:

Casilla – 23 (hitting behind Span has it’s perks)
Punto – 19
Morneau – 14
Cuddyer – 13

Those who have advanced runners from 1st most efficiently (0 out):

Punto – 9 bases advanced in 12 opportunities (0.75 B/Op)
Cuddyer – 5 bases advanced in 7 opportunities (0.714 B/Op)
Casilla – 10 bases advanced in 16 opportunities (0.625 B/Op)

Those who have advanced runners from 2nd most efficiently (0 out):

Punto – 7 bases advanced in 7 opps. (1.00 B/Op)
Kubel / Harris – 3 bases advanced in 4 opps. (0.75 B/Op)
Casilla – 5 bases advanced in 7 opps. (0.714 B/Op)

SCORING RUNNERS –

First off, scoring runners from third with less than two out.

Redmond 100% (2 for 2)
Gomez 100% (1 for 1)
Kubel 80% (4 for 5)
Morneau 73% (8 for 11)
Cuddyer 64% (7 for 11)
Span 42% (5 for 12)
Young 42% (5 for 12)
Harris 40% (2 for 5)
Punto 33% (2 for 6)
Casilla 33% (2 for 6)
Morales 0% (0 for 2)
Crede 0% (0 for 8)

Scoring runners in scoring position:

Young – 37% – 11 of 30
Span – 33% – 11 of 33
Mauer – 33% – 1 of 3
Kubel – 31% – 11 of 36
Morneau – 30% – 14 of 47
Cuddyer – 25% – 11 of 44
Redmond – 25% – 3 of 12
Punto – 24% – 7 of 29
Buscher – 23% – 3 of 13
Harris – 19% -3 of 16
Morales – 17% – 2 of 12
Casilla – 15% – 6 of 39
Crede -12% – 3 of 25
Gomez – 8% – 1 of 12

There’s a lot of pretty small samples in there, so it’s tough to pull anything out of here just yet, but we’ll give it another 27 games and see where we’re at.
