Having fun with LAD spring stats

By March 20th it is fun to look at spring stats just because they are the only stats we got to work with. 

Hitting:

  • Grandal leads the team in hits with 14
  • Grandal leads the team in extra base hits with 7
  • Brett Eibner leads the team in doubles with 4
  • Erick Mejia has two triples in only six at-bats. He did not score either time. This should not be a surprise as he has 23 minor league triples compared to 34 doubles.
  • Joc Pederson leads the team with four home runs.
  • The projected starting outfielders Puig/Joc/Ethier have slugging percentages of .594 / .583 /  .833 respectively.
  • Chris Taylor leads the team in walks with eight in only thirty-six plate appearances. You could write a whole column on Chris Taylor spring stats. He’s gotten on base 21 times in those thirty-six plate appearances.
  • Scott Van Slyke has zero extra base hits. hmmm

Pitching:

  • Lefty Patrick Schuster has been in ten games and given up only one run.
  • Lefty Adam Liberatore has been in five games  and has not allowed a run
  • Three pitchers vying for a bullpen spot (Josh Ravin, Chris Hatcher, Josh Fields) have all been horrible.
  • Which allows Ross Stripling to keep making his case for inclusion in the bullpen as he has pitched effectively with 11 k’s to only 2 walks in 9 innings.
  • Trevor Oaks doesn’t have the pedigrees of all the prospects ranked higher than him, but he has pitched 7 2/3 innings without giving up an earned run.
  • Rich Hill has ten walks and seven K’s in 8 2/3 innings. I only put this out just to remind myself that most of the time, spring stats mean nothing.
  • Favorite stat of the spring has to be that Ryu has been able to pitch five effective innings.
