The Worst Opposite-Field Hitter on Recor

Indlægaf jackky » 14. sep 2017, 07:20

The Red Sox signed one of the Chris Youngs the one who can hit. Terms havent yet been announced, or at least, terms hadnt yet been announced when I first learned about this, and that i havent bothered to check on again since. It doesnt really matter. Hell get some millions over some years, and it'll be neither great nor terrible, and whether Young is a succe s will most likely come down to about five to ten swings per season. If theyre doubles or homers, terrific. If theyre outs, bad investment. Therefore it complements the function players. Therefore it complements everybody.
Its fun that there are multiple Chris Youngs. Its all the more fun theyre both weird and exceptional, extreme representations of ordinary profiles. The pitcher is unusually tall, and he throws unusually slow, and that he generates an Bryce Petty Jersey unusual quantity of fly balls. The outfielder is also strange, and heres a plot of a part of his career profile:
Young hits a ton of balls in the air. A relative lot of those remain near to the infield. Young pulls nearly all his balls in play. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Young is sitting on a pretty low career BABIP, even with a good amount of footspeed. Young isnt the most challenging hitter to defend. You tend to know where the balls going, and then its a matter of covering because that limited ground as po sible.
So, yeah, both Chris Youngs are fly-ball machines. They both get pop-ups and run low BABIPs. They are and also coincidental fun facts. But lets focus on that pull rate. Also, around the inversely-related opposite-field rate. Young does his damage hitting to left and Mike Catapano Jersey left-center. Hes the worst opposite-field hitter we've on record.
Lets start with 2015, shall we? Heres our Chris Young 2015 spray chart:
This is simply one year, sure. Well reach that. But see that plot. Typically, the field is split into thirds, not halves. You will find balls hit towards the pull side, balls hit up the center, and balls hit the other way. Young just showed hardly any going the other way. Some pop to center, some pop to right-center, but almost nothing to dead right. Heres the deepest opposite-field ball in play of Youngs season:
Almost a cheap Yankee Stadium homer. No problem with this! But, thats the deepest, and heres the second-deepest:
Its good to hit doubles, and this would be a double. Delmon Young isn't a good corner outfielder, and no corner outfielder is nice when hes playing the hitter to pull, and the hitter doesnt do that. Which means this was a solid hit, however that ball is around the gra s. Second-deepest opposite-field ball in play of the whole year. You can see in which the pop isnt, which is primarily due to Youngs swing. It has a tendency to come down to the swing path.
Moving beyond just 2015, heres what we should have available on the website, which matches back to 2012. Here is where Young has knocked his extra-base hits:
You see a little activity to right, but its limited to five doubles approximately, such as pictured above, in Baltimore. You dont see any opposite-field home runs. And, well, FanGraphs and Baseball-Reference have slightly different definitions of what counts as opposite field. But they both agree that this is Chris Youngs newest opposite-field homer. It was hit in Arizona, on August 7th, of the season 2010, and San Diegos shortstop was Miguel Tejada:
We have batted-ball splits returning to 2002. Since that time, 784 players have Bruce Carter Jersey pulled at least 250 batted balls. By pull wRC+, Chris Young ranks 51st. Solidly in the upper tenth. Young knows where his strength is, and it has yet to let him down. Hes a pull hitter. There are numerous pull hitters.
Meanwhile, 614 players have hit at least 250 batted balls the other way. By opposite-field wRC+, Chris Young ranks 614th. Dead last, at -18, that is four points worse than Frank Thomas -14. Theres Henry Blanco at -10, and Richard Hidalgo at -5, and Brian Dozier at -1, and thats it for the negatives. No ones done worse over there than Young. Its nothing like this really is some easy thing to exploit after all, Young remains within the league, getting huge amount of money. But seldom is really a players limitation so obvious. You can make the majors like a pull hitter, however, you had better be a damn good pull hitter, or perhaps a pitcher.
Young has a 229-point distinction between his pull wRC+ and his opposite-field wRC+. Again, going back 14 years, 613 players have hit at least 250 batted balls in every direction. Youngs difference may be the fourth-greatest in the sample, behind Thomas, Chris Heisey, and Jonny Gomes. Hes just in front of Hidalgo.
Before leaving this, I wish to utilize the Baseball-Reference Play Index, simply because they have data that goes back further. Their split data dates back to 1988, and looking at that, lets consider right-handed hitters whove hit a minimum of 250 batted balls another way. Young shows up dead last with a .356 OPS. Second-worst: Josh Willingham, completely up at .429. And among left-handed hitters, Scott Spiezio is last, by having an opposite-field OPS of .455. (Spiezio was a switch-hitter, but Baseball-Reference breaks the splits up.) Now, of course, there are pitchers who hit worse. And there are some cup-of-coffee players who hit worse. But one of the players with large enough samples, Chris Young may be the worst opposite-field hitter we see. The information sample covers nearly three full decades.
Thats interesting. There are pull hitters, and you will find extreme pull hitters, after which theres Chris Young, whos awful best to left, and just awful to right, and he knows it, and everybody else knows it. You best believe pitchers know it, and catchers realize it, but Quinton Coples Jersey still Young gets pitches he is able to hit from time to time, because you cant just eliminate a whole part of the plate, and often pitchers mi s. Actually, frequently, pitchers mi s. If they mi s in, Young might go deep. Theres nothing complicated about his approach, but he can get it done and survive, much like Brian Dozier does. Step one is figuring the hitter out, but second step is executing, and pitchers just dont consistently execute.
Now the Red Sox get to take a risk on Young in Fenway Park. It seems just like a great fit. Young can rip balls from the big giant wall, and intuitively, that should help him more than most ballparks. Of note, over Youngs career, he's his best numbers in Houston. He's his second-best numbers in Boston. Might not be a coincidence. But nothing ought to be taken for granted, here. Jonny Gomes offers quite a bit in common with Young while at bat, so when he was with the Red Sox in 2013, he actually hit better on the highway. Baseball players are only so predictable, and good fits dont always result in great results.
But the likelihood is there. And Young must be a role player anyway, which means this shouldnt do or die anything. The Red Sox are in po se sion of some extra depth and some extra options. And they have probably the most extreme position players in the game. That doesnt make Young probably the most interesting player to look at in the game LaRon Landry Jersey , but he's profoundly interesting in writing.
