It’s late April, so we’re getting to the point where the stats we see in the batters’ graphics every night will start to (kind of) mean something. But, it’s also still early enough that there are some ridiculous stat lines up there.
Let’s start with IsoP. Currently, the Yankees have SIX (!!) players in the top ten of the American League’s IsoP leaderboard. Curtis Granderson leads the pack with a .418 mark. Alex Rodriguez is right behind him at .415, and Mark Teixeira is third at .379. Jorge Posada and his .300 mark are in sixth place while Russell Martin (.294) and Robinson Cano (.273) are in seventh and tenth respectively.
If I told you that Derek Jeter had the same IsoP as Jack Cust, you’d probably be pretty pumped, right? Cust has a career IsoP of .201 and has been at .177 and .166 in the last two seasons. Sadly, this year, that carbon-copy IsoP is a bad thing for both players. Both Jeter and Cust have .016 IsoP marks, good for a tie for dead last in the American League (Nick Swisher has the sixth worst mark at .036).
Robinson Cano has just one walk all season, leading to a 1.5% BB rate, which is obviously undesirable. Right now, Robbie has career high marks in O-Swing%, Z-Swing%, and overall Swing%. Andruw Jones, by the way, has zero walks.
Brett Gardner and Carl Crawford are tied for an AL worst .162 wOBA, while A-Rod and his .510 wOBA lead the league with Russell Martin (.434), Curtis Granderson (.433), and Mark Teixeira (.431) placing sixth, seventh, and eighth. If he had enough PAs at the same pace, Eric Chavez‘s .421 wOBA would be tenth, just ahead of Maicer Izturis (um…) and his .417 mark.
Jorge Posada has five homers, eight walks (seven uBB, one IBB), and 13 strikeouts. 26 of his 58 plate appearances have ended in one of the Three True Outcomes, which makes a 44.83% mark. His career mark is 38.63%.
The Yankees are the only AL team that has two players already reach at least 1.0 fWAR–Curtis Granderson: 1.3, Alex Rodriguez: 1.0.
None of these numbers are going to last, but it’s fun to look at them and see how awesomely certain guys are playing at the beginning of the season. It’s also nice to look at things like a .162 wOBA from Gardner and super low IsoPs from Jeter and Swisher and know they’re going to turn around at some point.
