Orioles Production per 100 Plate Appearances

Here’s what baseball fans really need, another set of numbers by which to measure offensive production. Over the past few years I’ve been paying careful attention to the Orioles player’s production measured per 100 plate appearances.

I started looking at it with more interest last year as Mark Reynolds became such a polarizing figure in Orioles lore. While some of his shortcomings are glaring to say the least, I’ve maintained that Reynolds is a lot more productive on offense than most are willing to gove him credit for.

 

Here’s a breakdown of the 14 Orioles who have gotten semi-regular at bats this season and whom the Orioles could be in position to use in what remains of 2012. All of the statistics below are broken ino the players’ averages per 100 plate appearances. Some of the numbers and team rankings will probably be a bit surprising.

 

The 14 players looked at, along with their total numbers of plate appearances (and the multiple used to determine their productiuon per 100) are as follows. In some cases the sample sizes are very small. In the case of Jim Thome the statistics reflect his 2012 totals and not just his appearances with the Orioles.

 

Matt Weiters 318 PA (.314), Mark Reynolds 233 PA (.429), Jim Thome 95 PA (1.05), Chris Davis 286 PA (.349), Robert Andino 290 PA (.344), Ryan Flaherty 102 PA (.980), Wilson Betemit 264 PA (.378), Steve Tolleson 57 PA (1.75), JJ Hardy 374 PA (.267), Adam Jones 361 PA (.277), Nick Markakis 225 PA (.444), Steve Pearce 76 PA (1.31), Xavier Avery 103 PA (.970), and Endy Chavez 111 PA (.900).
