Wrap-up (IF Edition)

 

These are some thoughts on the Giant's various players in multiple parts. This week, the infield.

UZR/150 is the amunt of runs a player would save on defense, relative to average at their position over 150 game period..

SGE is my guess at the  Subjective Groupthink Evaluation of a players defense.

 

Travis Ishikawa

BB% K% BB/K

8.40% 27.30% 0.34

AVG OBP SLG PA

0.261 0.329 0.387 363

UZR/150: 13.5

SGE: very good

He could improve some next year, but realistically, it seems like a stretch that he'll improve enough to actually be a good hitter. Also, He just swung at a slider at his back foot. 

 

Ryan Garko

BB% K% BB/K

7.6 % 14.1 % 0.58

AVG OBP SLG PA

0.268 0.344 0.421 400

UZR/150: 4.5

SGE: bad

Yeah, Ryan Garko is not +5 defending first baseman. You all know the story, not actually as bad a hitter as he looked with the Giants, but still a far cry from what you'd want out of first base. Garko would be the slowest player on any team that didn't already have Bengie Molina.

Bye, Rich! Looking forward to your broadcasting career!  

 

Jesus Guzman

AVG OBP SLG PA

0.250 0.250 0.250 20

UZR/150: -5

SGE: Dunno, but we've heard it's pretty bad.

Like a less toolsy Velez, they keep trying to find a position for him, without much cooperation grom Guzman's glove. His PCL batting line was merely ok, but he could probably put up similar production to Ryan Garko.  

 

Freddy Sanchez

BB% K% BB/K

4.6 % 16.6 % 0.29

AVG OBP SLG PA

0.293 0.326 0.416 489

UZR/150: 13.7

SGE: Looks good, when he plays

Hey, great. A second baseman on the wrong side of 30 with knee and shoulder problems.But he won a batting title once.

 

Emmanuel Burriss

BB% K% BB/K

6.50% 16.80% 0.41

AVG OBP SLG PA

0.238 0.292 0.267 220

UZR/150: -8.6

SGE: Occasionally briliant, but meh overall

Well, that didn't really work out. Burriss had a nice two weeks, but otherwise had the bat knocked out of his hands. His fielding needs work, but at least you can see how it could be MLB-quality someday. 

 

Matt Downs

BB% K% BB/K

10.20% 24.50% 0.46

AVG OBP SLG PA

0.17 0.25 0.264 60

UZR/150: 6.1 (at 2B)

SGE: Unmemorable

Downs actually out hit Frandsen at AAA this year. He's still a utility player at best, and one of those guys that jcb9 reminisces about at worst.

 

Juan Uribe

BB% K% BB/K

5.90% 20.60% 0.3

AVG OBP SLG PA

0.289 0.329 0.495 432

 

UZR/150: -7.1 (at SS), 4.7 at 2B

SGE: Perfect Game-ruining, but otherwise acceptable.

Hey, Juan Uribe was not only good, he was fun. Maybe a wise few could have seen the first one coming, but the second one certainly caught me off-guard. Why does it seem like the baseball gods are setting us up for a long term contract filled with hacking and deteriorating defense, then?

 

Kevin Frandsen

BB% K% BB/K

5.70% 8.00% 0.75

AVG OBP SLG PA

0.140 0.204 0.18 54

UZR/150: 37.3

SGE: Who?

It's not like Kevin Frandsen takes walks or hits for power or anything, but this is the Giants, those facts should be in hisfavor, shouldn't they? He's was outhit in AAA this year by younger "prospects" this year so the Giants really should be moving on anyway.

 

Pablo Sandoval

BB% K% BB/K

8.30% 14.50% 0.63

AVG OBP SLG PA

0.330 0.387 0.556 633

UZR/150: -7.7

SGE: Bad, but not disastrous.

That was awesome. 

 

Edgar Renteria

BB% K% BB/K

7.80% 15.00% 0.57

AVG OBP SLG PA

0.25 0.307 0.328 510

UZR/150: -1.2

SGE: All we saw were dollar signs.

Other than the two grand slams, that was not awesome. Edgar Rentaria was the picture of a player who still knows how to hit, but whose abilities were failing him. And just  because it was injury-related doesn't mean he's bouncing back. I hope the Giants have a good plan B next year.

 

Ryan Rohlinger

BB% K% BB/K

0.158 0.200 0.211 20

 

UZR/150: 38.2 (at 3B)

SGE: HE NEEDS TO WORK ON HIS THROWING

Chelsea Memmel's favorite Giant would be a good utility prospect, too bad that's not an actual thing.He seems like a capable infielder who can hit the occasional home run. I know this website hopes he can stick around.
