Comments on: Unluckiest hitters in baseball through 5/31/10
by: Rob Reed | June 9, 2010, 5:17pm
     

Ranking type: contact rate (first to worst), average (worst to first), and BABIP (worst to first). This should help us figure out the unluckiest hitters in all of baseball through the end of May. 150 minimum ABs.

1. David Eckstein, SD, NL, 186 AB, .285 AVG, .325 OBP, 19 R, 1 HR, 186.0 AB/HR, 13 RBI, 4 SB, 1 CS, .800 SB%, 5 K, 11 BB, .455 K/BB, .371 SLG%, 0.696 OPS, 97% CR%, .289 BABIP, .086 ISO

Ridiculous contact rate (97%)? The guy struck out only 5 times in 186 ABs... very impressive. So, he can hit. But he can't hit for power. And, on an anemic squad like the Pads, can't recommend him.

2. Jeff Keppinger, HOU, NL, 167 AB, .293 AVG, .344 OBP, 17 R, 0 HR, .00 AB/HR, 18 RBI, 1 SB, 1 CS, .500 SB%, 9 K, 13 BB, .692 K/BB, .389 SLG%, 0.733 OPS, 94% CR%, .310 BABIP, .096 ISO

See Eckstein.

3. A.J. Pierzynski, CHA, AL, 152 AB, .211 AVG, .241 OBP, 12 R, 2 HR, 76.0 AB/HR, 13 RBI, 0 SB, 1 CS, .00 SB%, 9 K, 6 BB, 1.00 K/BB, .309 SLG%, 0.55 OPS, 94% CR%, .213 BABIP, .099 ISO

Good news for me in my money league... through the remainder, he should hit pretty decently, and pop at least 10 dingers.

4. Juan Pierre, CHA, AL, 200 AB, .245 AVG, .281 OBP, 22 R, 0 HR, .00 AB/HR, 6 RBI, 19 SB, 4 CS, .826 SB%, 13 K, 10 BB, 1.00 K/BB, .275 SLG%, 0.556 OPS, 93% CR%, .262 BABIP, .030 ISO

The average will come up, as will the runs and SBs.

5. Miguel Tejada, BAL, AL, 189 AB, .259 AVG, .289 OBP, 19 R, 4 HR, 47.000 AB/HR, 22 RBI, 0 SB, 0 CS, .00 SB%, 13 K, 8 BB, 1.00 K/BB, .365 SLG%, 0.654 OPS, 93% CR%, .262 BABIP, .106 ISO

Started out well, and fell off because of bad luck. 93% contact rate is too good... should be hitting .280+ by season's end with respectable numbers for a late round pick.

6. Victor Martinez, BOS, AL, 167 AB, .257 AVG, .311 OBP, 22 R, 7 HR, 23.714 AB/HR, 24 RBI, 0 SB, 0 CS, .00 SB%, 14 K, 13 BB, 1.00 K/BB, .449 SLG%, 0.76 OPS, 91% CR%, .247 BABIP, .192 ISO

If you want to trade him, I'll take him. :)

7. Alberto Callaspo, KAN, AL, 206 AB, .296 AVG, .329 OBP, 25 R, 7 HR, 29.857 AB/HR, 31 RBI, 3 SB, 0 CS, 1.00 SB%, 18 K, 10 BB, 1.00 K/BB, .495 SLG%, 0.824 OPS, 91% CR%, .298 BABIP, .199 ISO

Lousy team. But, Alberto is a decent hitter, who should continue to flirt with .300 the rest of the way.

8. Placido Polanco, PHI, NL, 183 AB, .306 AVG, .339 OBP, 26 R, 5 HR, 36.00 AB/HR, 21 RBI, 2 SB, 0 CS, 1.00 SB%, 18 K, 9 BB, 2.0 K/BB, .448 SLG%, 0.787 OPS, 90% CR%, .319 BABIP, .142 ISO

More of the same.

9. Vladimir Guerrero, TEX, AL, 193 AB, .332 AVG, .358 OBP, 29 R, 12 HR, 16.333 AB/HR, 44 RBI, 4 SB, 2 CS, .667 SB%, 19 K, 8 BB, 2.500 K/BB, .560 SLG%, 0.918 OPS, 90% CR%, .321 BABIP, .228 ISO

Lights out as long as he is healthy and as long as he is in Texas.

10. Marco Scutaro, BOS, AL, 201 AB, .269 AVG, .350 OBP, 29 R, 2 HR, 100.00 AB/HR, 10 RBI, 1 SB, 2 CS, .333 SB%, 21 K, 25 BB, .840 K/BB, .348 SLG%, 0.698 OPS, 89% CR%, .292 BABIP, .080 ISO

What happened to Marco? He just isn't that great a fantasy ballplayer in the first place. I'm still not a fan, and thought last season was a major aberration... the 89% CR and .292 BABIP are not THAT bad, so I can't see much of a change in Marco up or down through the remainder. What you see is what you get, and that ain't all that good.
