Yazmani Grandal – King of the 3-run home run
Yazmani Grandal has only hit six home runs this year, but when he hits them, they count. Grandal now has three of the LAD nine three run home runs accounting for 33% of them.
Not a bad seasons work when you’re hitting less than .200 and generally considered to be having a poor offensive season. Which he is, but how about those runs batted in?
Grandal has driven in 26 runs with only 28 hits.
Adrian Gonzalez the man paid to drive in runs has driven in 32 runs with 69 hits.
Runs batted in may be an old farts counting stat, but any baseball fan could tell you. they would rather see a three run home run, than a ground ball to second.
